Description and usage notes:
An alternative to the Damascones that isn’t IFRA restricted: usage recommendation is up to 10% of the formula but it is effective even in traces.
Description from Givaudan: “Odour: Rosy, Spicy, Fruity, Woody Use: Givescone is used where real innovation is required. It has a complex odour picture, with floral, spicy, fruity, woody and even herbaceous nuances. It blends particularly well with rose, carnation, aldehydes, chypre and fougère, and with aromatic and spicy notes.”
Arcadi Boix Camps says that Givescone is “a well known chemical that is difficult to describe. It has many nuances of the damascones and damascenone, but is less sharp-metalic and has more of a sweet-apple note. It combines very well with undecavertol … and it forms part of important international bases, important functional fragrances (Ariel Future) and alcoholic fragrances (Jean Marc Sinan for ladies).”
