    Of course Hexalon can be used with other ionones to great effect.

    I really enjoy using Hexalon in fruitier compositions which have a green facet. Very good with ‘pineapple’ odourants; allyl amyl glycolate, ethyl butyrate, ethyl 2 methyl butyrate, other butyrates, acetates etc.

    The implementation of Hexalon with galbanum materials; spirogalbanone, dynascone, Galbanol etc. is also worth noting.

    Hexalon isn’t used nearly as much as it should be.

    I have used Hexalon with many other materials and the effects are superb.
