Description and usage notes:
A rarely offered and unusual aldehyde that can add significant realism and freshness to citrus and fruity creations among others. It has a very distinctive cilantro / coriander leaf aspect that isn’t found in the more usual aldehydes. It is very fresh and works particularly well with lime oil. Not to be confused with Tridecanal.
In fragrances it is also useful to add lift and diffusion (in a similar way to that provided by trans-2-cis-6-nonadienal or cis-6-Nonenol). In this context very tiny traces are used: indeed it is rare that more than a trace will appear in any fragrance.
Arctander says that “it introduces great power, diffusion and lift to the aroma, reviving an overly sweet Citrus complex, etc.”
This material is both extremely powerful and quite expensive so we also offer it for sale at 1% in Ethanol
The material offered here is predominately the trans isomer, at a minimum 95% purity and stabilised with α-tocopherol.
