Description and usage notes:

More widely used in flavours than fragrances, this fruity ester is nevertheless useful to add natural realism to fruit notes, especially pineapple.

Arctander suggests it is “used in perfumery to introduce an ‘aged’ topnote in the alcoholic perfume solutions, particularly for Citrus-colognes, etc.”
