Description and usage notes:

A very useful addition to the palette for extending green-notes into the middle and dry down phases: commonly used alongside more volatile green materials such as cis-3-Hexenol and cis-3-Hexenyl Acetate.

Arctander: describes the odour like this: “Mild, but tenacious, green-herbaceous and woody odor.” 

He goes on to explain that “The major asset of this ester is its tenacity. As a “’green” material it is much weaker than the esters of the lower alifatic acids. But the milder odor makes it easier to handle, and the gentle, green-herbacious effect can be suitably utilized in Fougere, New Mown Hay compositions, Chyprcs, etc. It blends very well with Styrax materials and the Phenylethyl alcohol family, with Amyl salicylate and Coumarin, Oakmoss and Ylang-Ylang.”

    Received as a sample, and thank you!

    I love the smell of this and have been dropping some of it into everything I do. Essential in my green accords.
