Description and usage notes:

An exceptionally useful modern spicy-leathery material of great versatility.

Description from Givaudan: “Safraleine has a very unique warm and vibrant character offering a new alternative to existing spicy odorants. Safraleine exhibits warm, powerful, leathery and tobacco facets but its complexity also reveals characteristics of spices reminiscent of natural saffron, enriched by rose ketone-like floral aspects.”

In 2003, Arcadi Boix Camps said of this material: “Here Givaudan discovered a great master chemical imparting subtleness, delicacy, refinement, intricacy, velvetiness and great class wherever it is used. … The accords of Safraleine are simply unique with tobacco chemicals like Tabanone or tetramethyl naphtalenone, with the rose ketones … Safraleine can be twisted towards spiciness or floral woody accords but also toward aquatic effects …”
