Description and usage notes:

This chiral form of citronellol from Takasago, who specialise in chiral molecules for the aroma trades, is the form that occurs most widely in nature and gives a cleaner, sweeter, more natural note than the usual racemic citronellol.

This laevo form is manufactured by Takasago to greater than 99% purity. They describe it like this: “Odor: Fresh, sweet-rosy. Use: Widely used in many perfume compositions. Gives a clean, fresh, and natural rosy note to fragrances” 

We also offer the cheaper, more widely available racemic product and you can find quotations from Arctander concerning its use in the entry for that product.
