Description and usage notes:
Warm herbacious-floral odour reminiscent of lilac and elderflower, with animalic and woody undertones. This is a very old perfume material now rather underrated.
Arctander suggests it is an “Excellent perfume material for Lilac, Narcissus, Jasmin, Muguet, Hyacinth, Mimosa, Neroli, and in certain types of Rose (Safran-like notes). It is stable in soap and blends excellently with its homologues, esters and with a great number of other perfume chemicals.”
Note that this material is harmful if swallowed, so appropriate care should be taken when handling it.
