Description and usage notes:

Crystals of this widely used, clean, diffusive musk: one of the few early non-Nitro-musks that has stood the test of time and continues to be used extensively in modern perfumery.

According to Scent and Chemistry, Tonalide/Fixolide gives a very special accord with coumarin that is much desirable in constructing male fougere perfumes.”

    This musk is one of the standard “white” musks. It is in my musk collection the best detectable musk, right from the bottle. It is more masculine and in general interesting that Galaxolide, but somehow similar. It is also an fordable one, since you will dissolve it in ethanol. I use 25% dilution.

    So far, I only use musks in combination (mostly Tonalid, Galaxolide, Exaltolide and Ambrettolide) to create a clean, somehow, transparent/light prolongation of the actual scent.

    If I had to have only one white musk, I mean choosing between Galaxolide, Ethyl. Brass. and Tonalide, I will chose Tonalide.

    Yes, I worth buy.
