Description and usage notes:
A rather beautiful and unusual transparent-anise material, with herbal notes of basil, fennel and licorice. Canthoxal is much softer in its anise note than Toscanol or Anethole, it also lacks the powderiness of Anisaldehyde, and instead has a delicate fruity-watery aspect in the direction of raspberry.
Excellent in herbal fragrances; florals, especially anisic florals such as hawthorn and lilac, where it acts as a middle note. It also adds an interesting modern freshness to almost any type of fragrance. It is also suitable for a wide range of perfumery uses due to its superior stability over anisaldehyde.
Typical usage – traces to 5%
