Description and usage notes:
Excellent floral, sweeter, fruitier and more honeyed rose than PEA, they are often used together.
Arctander tells us it “is widely used in perfume compositions, from everyday soap and detergent perfumes to fine cosmetic fragrances, room-sprays, deodorants, etc. almost any type of perfume. Its sweetness, versatility and very low cost makes it almost universally applicable. For Rose, Jasmin, Hyacinth, Reseda, Freesia, Peony, Magnolia, Oriental and even citrusy fragrance types, it may be used at concentrations from 1 percent up to 10 or perhaps much higher.”
