Description and usage notes:
An unusual lavender-floral, herbal and fruity ingredient that strikes this perfumer as giving the impression of a freshly cut-open puffball mushroom (a much cleaner odour than that normally associated with mushrooms). It’s a surprisingly versatile ingredient once (and perhaps still) heavily used in the recreation of lavender and other herbal and floral essential oils from synthetic ingredients. In fruit accords it contributes a crisp juicy, almost underripe quality too. It is normally used from traces to 1-2% of the concentrate.
According to Arctander this material has a “Fresh-herbacious fruity-minty odor, recalling the topnotes in Lavender and Lavandin (and many other herbaceous essential oils) less warm and not buttery as the alcohol, more citrusy, and almost geranium-like in topnote. Some observers find a rosy note in this ester.”
There is an IFRA restriction on the use levels of this material, which for most categories, is 0.3% of the finished product (as at the 48th amendment).
