Description and usage notes:

An unusual and powerful component of rose oil, first discovered in 1959, that is also found in lychees and Gewurtztraminer wine. Often used to add a green or metallic note and to improve diffusion.  It has a particular affinity with l-Carvone, especially in floral compositions.

Arctander describes it as “Penetrating and very diffusive, gassy-green or ‘hard’ green, floral odor of poor tenacity. The resemblance to Geranium appears only upon dilution of the Rose oxide, and best in a composition. The diluted material has also a Rose-like character.”
