Description and usage notes:
Powerful and versatile, the odour is described as: floral cyclamen, fresh, rhubarb, Linden-blossom and green.
Unlike many aldehydes it is stable in most media and its substantivity makes it very useful. Not quite as strong as most of the saturated aliphatic aldehydes, it is still best used in dilution.
Arctander describes it as “Diffusive and powerful floral-green, floral-stem like odor with pronounced vegetable Cucumber-Melon-like notes.
Overall resembling the odor of Lindenblossom. Extensively used in perfumery for floral effects, fresh-green-floral topnotes (of lasting fragrance), Useful in Lilac, Lily, Peony, Magnolia, Orangeblossom, Alpine Violet, etc. Blends well with the Ionones and all Rose notes.”
