Main Synonyms: DHM; 2,6-dimethyloct-7-en-2-ol 



Description and usage notes:

Can be used in all product types and at relatively high levels. From toiletries to all-purpose cleaners and fine fragrances is has a strong, complex odour now distinctively associated with masculine fragrances and cosmetics.

Works extremely well in support of citrus, especially lime and can be used in large amounts to good effect.  Excellent for masking strong base-product odours.

Drakkar Noir is one example of a fine fragrance that contains a characteristic note of dihydromyrcenol.

Arctander is quite enthusiastic about this material: “Powerful, fresh Lime-like, overall citrusy-floral and sweet odor with little or no terpenic undertones.

The material shows some tendency to polymerization, whereby it loses odor and increases in viscosity. With proper inhibitor added, it is fairly stable against such deterioration

Useful in soap perfumes and as a powerful supporting note under Lime oils in Citrus and Lime-type fragrances. It belongs to a very small group of chemicals that have typical Lime notes without being a hydrocarbon.

It introduces fresh and powerful, diffusive notes to floral bases, Muguet, Lily, Lilac, Hyacinth, etc., and produces interesting blends with Rose chemicals.”

    The iconic stereotypical fresh clean masculine note. Unfairly maligned by some because of its omnipresence in masculine fragrance, but really quite pleasant.

    This also works quite well in smaller amounts to give brightness and lift to more modern feminine fragrances.

    A very modern citrus/floral material which blends perfectly with aquatic/marine scents.
    Brightens florals and very pleasant.

    Brighteness fresh smell.
    Dihydromyrcenol imparts a powerful, fresh lime-like, citrusy-floral and sweet odor with little or no terpenic undertones. It is used predominantly in soap fragrances and as a powerful supporting note in citrus and lime-type perfumes.

    Really nice quality, here. Unlike some batches from different suppliers, this one is really bright and beautiful. A perfect match for my lavender absolute.
