Description and usage notes:
Softer, finer, longer lasting and less agresic than linalool. An extremely versatile product that also has the advantage that, unlike linalool, does not require declaration on product labels.
Arctander seems quite enthusiastic: “This alcohol has been suggested for use in perfume compositions as a modifier for LinaIool with certain advantages over that marerial. Ethyl Iinalool has a somewhat slower rate of evaporation and is easier to work with, needs only normal fixation, and blends with more materials. It introduces softer, more floral-woody, less citrusy notes, according to the composition in which it is used.
Along with Ethyl Iinalyl acetate, it forms a pleasant Bergamot-type background note even in soap perfumes, a combination which is more stable than Bergamot oil itself. The alcohol is also an interesting item in Muguet, Lilac, Lily, Appleblossom, etc. as well as in fantasy creations.”
