Description and usage notes:

Sweet-warm, spicy, woody, mildly floral and tea-like: a base note and a fixative in spicy and floral perfumery compositions for all purposes.

Widely used as an alternative to the heavily restricted isoeugenol. Stronger than eugenol acetate but less tenacious, spicier and not as vanillic as methyl diantilis.

Arctander says that: “Of the common derivatives of Eugenol, it is one of the most Carnation-like. This phenolether is used in perfume compositions as part of Carnation bases, as a fixative in spicy fragrances, as a mildly spicy note in Rose, Ylang and other florals. It is commonly used in variations of ‘L’Origan’ type fragrances, Oriental perfumes, etc. and it blends well with Labdanum or other Ambre-like materials, with woody notes, Ionones, etc. Interesting combinations are obtained with Opopanax or Linalool or derivatives of Linalool.”
