Product Description

Description and usage notes:

First isolated by Bush Boake Allen (now part of IFF) and notoriously difficult to buy in small quantities. Here at 1% in DPG, this is geosmin bought pure from IFF, diluted by Pell Wall and still so strong it must be used with caution.

We recommend you dilute to 0.1%, 0.01% or less for blending.

Geosmin is the scent of a freshly ploughed field, the first rain after a dry period, damp and deceptively powerful. Geosmin doesn’t seem particularly strong when you sniff the 1% solution, but even a drop or two will have your neighbours wondering whether it’s raining.

Traces in a fragrance can give you a unique effect and greatly increase diffusion. Like nothing else and very special indeed.

For those working on a larger scale, we also offer limited amounts at 10% in DPG
