Description and usage notes:

Also known as Centifoyl and Centifolyl, this is a very useful material for combining with other rose-florals, especially for the fruity-spicy style of ‘red rose’ fragrance.  Heart-to-top note.

Description from Givaudan: “Odor: Floral tea-rose with a fruity balsamic character and a hint of honey sweetness. Use: Used at up to 3% in many applications from detergents to fine fragrances. Useful modifier of the more common rose alcohols and esters.” 

Calkin & Jellinek report that this material was used as part of the rose note in Opium, to which they say it makes an important contribution.

    A very round and gentle rose note with slight fruity characteristics. I imagine rose peddles that have dampened by rain when smelling this. Works really well with spicier notes for brightening.
