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% or even 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 more modest scale, we also offer Geosmin at 1%
