Description and usage notes:
An extremely useful fixative for delicate floral compositions.
Description from Givaudan: “Floral, Fruity, Balsamic, Sweet, Linalyl Cinnamate gives a sweet natural effect to floral, fruity and oriental compositions. It is ideal for use in delicate floral accords where it acts as a blending agent and as a fixative.”
Arctander tells us that “The fixative effect and the soft fruity-herbaceous undertones produced by this ester are often utilized in delicate floral bases such as Muguet, Lily, Freesia, etc.”
While Curtis & Williams describe it as a “superior fragrance-contributing fixative for Lily-of -the-Valley and other delicate florals” and suggest using it with citronellol and lilial for a muguet note.
