Description and usage notes:
This is original Cyclemax from IFF, who describe this material first made in 1980, as “Odor: Fresh, floral, muguet with a fruity melon nuance”.
In their information leaflet on the material from 2014 there’s rather more information: “The traditional Lily of the Valley odor profile of Cyclemax is similar to Lilial as is the molecular structure. Therefore it is very useful in developing bases to replace materials like Lilial. The odor profile of Cyclemax blends very well with Kharismal Super [Hedione], Helional and Melafleur to name a few. Used in combination with Myrac Aldehyde and Floral Super the fresh facets of Cyclemax are emphasized increasing the top note performance. For aggressive bases such as powder detergent with bleach a combination of Cyclemax, Meijiff and Muguesia should be considered.”
It is probably the closest in odour to Lilial of any individual material and, as IFF have noted, it is useful in replacing other muguet odourants that are no longer available or restricted by regulations: it is incorporated into both the Pell Wall Lyral Replacer and the Pell Wall Lilial Replacer.
