Description and usage notes:

Best diluted to 1% for use and evaluation this is a powerful and long-lasting ingredient.

Arctander suggests it “is used sparingly in perfume compositions often in combination with Coumarin or Coumarin derivatives. It is an excellent fortifier for such materials in Lavender fragrances, New Mown Hay, ‘tabac’ type fragrances, spicy bases, etc. It falls naturally into Celery seed oil, Lovage, Fenugreek, Tonka, Liatris, Flouve etc.” 

and he also describes it as “Sweet and very powerful, caramellic-spicy odor, described by different individuals with quite a variation of terms and phrases: Walnut – Maple – Licorice – Celery – Tobacco etc. particularly when studied in the un-diluted state by laymen.

More reproducible evaluations are obtained when the material is studied at one percent strength in an odourless solvent.”

    At first i didnt like then, but i faul in love with it…
    OK… Sweet, caramel, maple sugar, coffee, woody, curry, bready…what a combination!
    Used with Gamma-Octalactone in a ratio of 1:3 you can mimic BARAONDA from NASOMATTO.
    Love this one.
