Description and usage notes:
A deceptively powerful material of great diffusion that should be used in traces to exalt and unify sandalwood and musk odourants. Easy to overdose but invaluable when properly used. Many people find it hard to smell, even in dilution and not everyone smells the same thing (see the Symrise description below). It can add great effects to woody, tobacco, musk and incense blends.
Despite its diffusive character this material is also very tenacious, even outlasting some musks.
Description from Symrise:
|Odor Description:||animalic, woody, amber, tonkin musk|
|Stability:||body lotion (good), shampoo/shower gel (very good), soap (good), AP roll-on 15% (good), detergent powder conc. (very good), cleaner liquid citric acid (good), cleaner APC liquid (very good), bleach (poor)|
|Perfumery Use:||individual perception varies between clean woody and animalic sweat-like; adds a warm sensual aspect to woody and musky notes; pretends a sensual attraction to fragrance acceptance|
|Use Level:||traces up to 1%|
It is provided here at 10% in ethanol to make blending a little easier, but we still recommend further dilution prior to use if you’re new to this material.
