Description and usage notes:

Can be used in perfumes only in the barest traces to add realism to gourmand, fruity and green fragrance types, especially where a tropical effect is desired.

This material is supplied by Takasago at 100 parts per million in TEC, and then diluted to 10%, also in TEC, by Pell Wall, hence the ‘10’ designation in the name.

Takasago describe their product as:

Odor Description
Sparkling Citrus, Grape
Application Information
Very effective in air care and watery applications where traces already provide interesting effects, obviously in fruity notes.
Typical Use Level: Up to 1%

But we’re not sure that gives you any sense of just how powerful this material is – even at this concentration it’s unpleasantly sulphurous in the direction of blackcurrant bud absolute – though you can detect the wine-like quality, it’s not immediately easy to see how it’s going to give a sparkling citrus effect: significant further dilution is necessary prior to use on anything but a relatively large scale in the opinion of this perfumer.

As a result we are also offering Sauvignone 1 – one tenth the power of the material in this product and still so powerful that you’ll need to treat it as you would one of our pyrazines.  For those working on a larger scale we also offer Sauvignone 100, as supplied by Takasago.

    Pretty good stuff, but not as deep and persistant as real black current bud — which is much more expensive though. But if you just need contrast, green winey effect (Sauvignon !) in the head note, it is OK.
