Description and usage notes:

Sweet, floral (as in lilac), herbal, woody. Similar to linalool but very stable and does not have to be declared on labels. Less rosewood and more lilac in character.

Arctander points out that this material has been around for a very long time but, in the late 1960s, was only just begining to be appreciated: “After many years of rather unsuccessful existence, the material has finally caught the interest of perfumers to a greater extent, and the price of the title material has reached a more attractive level. As a major component in delicate floral fragrance types, Muguet, Lily, Lilac, Mimosa, variations of Rose and Jasmin, etc. it has repeatedly confirmed its pleasant effects and good stability. It is also used in Lavender compositions, Chypres, Fougeres, etc. as a modifier/blender, and its mild odor makes it almost universally applicable.”

By the time Arcadi Boix Camps is writing in 1985 he mentions Tetrahydrolinalol as “classic compounds” in the herbaceous floral category, along with dihydromyrcenol, dimetol and others.

    Manny thanks to Pell Wall to provide this product for perfumers.There are situations when certain products such as Kephalis and Agarwood have to be combined in woody accords. In this situation Linalool is unusefull, but Tetrahydrolinalool is perfect. There are many other similar situations in which hydro forms are more compatible in difficult accords.
