Description and usage notes:
A more refined alternative to the ubiquitous Linalyl Acetate. It is richer, more stable and longer lasting, making it one of the most useful and versatile esters available.
Description from Givaudan: “Softer, more floral, more bergamot and less lavender than Linalyl Acetate. It has an elegant, refreshing effect in floral bouquets.”
Arctander speaks highly of this material: “This ester is being used on an increasing scale in perfumery, and seems not only to substitute Linalyl acetate in many cases, but it expands the field of usage of that ester to areas hitherto beyond the effective limits of Linalyl acetate. The subject ester has greater stability richer odor and better tenacity. It improves the ‘Bergamot-effect’ of a composition where Linalyl acetate has previously been used. It also blends excellently with the conventional perfume and soap perfume materials with almost no limits of application.”
