Description and usage notes:
Extremely useful material that occurs widely in natural oils and plant scents, where it is acting mainly as a fixative.
Arctander says this: “Widely used in perfume compositions, including many low-cost floral fragrances, soap perfumes, etc. Blends excellently with Amylsalicylate, Phenylethylalcohol, aromatic propionates, benzoates, etc. Generally as a modifier-blender with fair tenacity and moderate fixative value.”
Curtis & Williams suggest that it is used “as a modifier and fixative in Rose, Hyacinth, Lilac, Muguet and other florals, particularly in perfumes for toilet soaps” and point out that it occurs naturally in “Cinnamon Leaf Oil and the absolutes of Hyacinth and Narcissus”.
This material is solid at room temperature – so by default it is supplied at 50% in DPG – if you prefer pure we make a small additional charge to melt it for you but the price of the material itself is the same – please indicate your preference in the box at checkout. Note that you only need to pay the melting charge once however much Cinnamyl Alcohol you’re buying.
