Description and usage notes:

Probably the most widely used aroma chemical in all of perfumery.

This is original Firmenich material, not one of the substitutes now widely offered.

Very useful in citrus as well as virtually all florals, Hedione can improve many fragrance types and can be effective in doses from under 1% to 50% of the formula.

Works as both fixative and exalting agent in most compounds and blends well with the majority of ingredients both natural and synthetic.

Arctander, writing very soon after it became available and before it’s full potential has been realised has this to say of it: “This ester, only recently brought into the market as a commercially available perfume chemical, is intended for use in artificial Jasmin absolute, Jasmin and Tuberose bases, and as a trace additive in powerfully floral fragrances. It serves as an economical substitute for Methyl jasmonate (see monograph), but does not have the overwhelming sweetness and diffusive power of that material.” 

By the time Arcadi Boix Camps is writing about it in 1978 it has already seen use in many successful fragrances.  He says it is “the compound that without a doubt has most influenced modern perfumery and has allowed the great artists to develop their ideas with inspiration.  It was used for the first time in Eau Sauvage and in Diorissimo, and it has become famous because it gives to compositions a delicate, fresh, smooth, radiant, warm, elegant character that blends well with all kinds of perfumes from floral-citrics to woody, chypre and oriental.”

    First of all I’d like to thank Chris for fast delivery and great customer service. This product is wonderful and it smells very fresh and has a jasmine scent. I will be using it with traditional motia ittr to give a western twist with some musk. I think it will work very nice I definitely recommend it.

    By the way, I forget in me review for Ambrofix to mentioned the fast delivery and the really great customer services. I was really impressed by the beauty of the samples presentation.

    Hedione is an other great aroma chemical and maybe (some how) indispensable.

    Ok, in order better use and understand this rewiew, I am a scent lover but a very beginner in the natural perfumery –so far only as a hobby.

    To me, Hedione smells like a clean empty Jasmin. With empty Jasmin, I mean it has all the structure of Jasmin without being Jasmin.

    To me, I has the unique property that you can smell it but you can at the same time smell all other material in the blend. I would said it is some how transparent without being to much absent.

    By the way, Hedione, smells by it self, to me, very pleasant. It is very usufull in mens blends. Like, ambroxan, it also give some elegance and cleanness to natural blends.

    The prise of this material is, to my opinion, very competitive. I bought a 50 ml bottle, next time I will by a 100 or 200 ml.

    PS: I am not an native English speaker. When using more that one word, I mean something around them.

    This is a good product. Pay attention dear colleagues when you buy this product. I bought from America Hedione Firmenich
    which at the analysis had 10% cis isomer, this product can not be used in fine perfume, only for detergents. It would be right to specify the cis-isomer content. Better is Hedione high cis.
