Description and usage notes:
Until recently a captive of IFF, this is a very useful material for adding freshness to a fragrance.
It works particularly well in candles where citrus notes can be difficult to get right.
IFF describe it like this: “Adds sparkle and bloom to most compounds. Grapefruit, rhubarb, vetivers, green, woody.”
Arcadi Boix Camps, writing in 2009, when it was still a captive, tells us that it is “chemically related to Symrise’s Hydrocitronitrile but it smells totally different. It is extraordinarily citrussy-grapefruitlike with a torrent of freshness within its molecule.”
We would also like to draw to your attention the detailed review by EM which contains further suggested uses and combinations for this excellent material.
