Description and usage notes:

Mild, clean, rose-floral, lily, green, peony. Long lasting and with good fixative properties.

Arctander tells us that it: “is used in perfume compositions originally with the intention of stabilizing Hydroxycitronellal and prolonging the odor life of that aldehyde in compositions.

However, there are other uses for this alcohol, not always obvious from a brief glimpse at the odor, which is, truly, not immediately impressive. It has an excellent fixative effect upon many types of delicate floral fragrance, and as a blender/modifier for other types. The use of Hydroxycitronellol as a stabilizer for Hydroxycitronellal is still practised, but the author finds that the alcohol has much wider possibilities and virtues of its own as an odorant.”
