Found in the odours of several fruits, distinctively pineapple in character, though it is present naturally in the scents of many other fruits too, including grapefruit, mango, strawberry, and orange juice (but it is not oil). It is extremely diffusive and very powerful – becoming rather vomit-like when over-dosed – but capable of adding freshness and lift to floral and oriental fragrances. Try adding a small amount of this material to a fragrance containing Fructalate to make a simple Pineapple accord or add some to jasmine to give it a fresher, sharper feeling.
Arctander suggests this: “This ester has occasionally been used in minute traces in perfume compositions for its warm-fruity efl’ect in Rose and other floral bases. It is also used as a masking agent for industrial fragrances.”
