Description and usage notes:
Original IFF manufactured material. Thanks to the iconic Molecule 01 from Escentric Molecules, Iso E Super is probably the most widely recognised perfumery chemical in the world. It is also incredibly versatile and widely used in fragrances of all kinds and applications.
Besides supplying its own odour, it aids diffusion and gives body and a thickening, velvety quality to a fragrance. Used in simple blends it can help almost any material to ‘smell more like itself’ enhancing the odour quality. This has led to a widespread belief that it has pheromone effects, though this is not supported by research evidence (see also Hedione for a material with better evidence)
Can be used in relatively high proportions and may constitute as much as 20% of the finished product in some cases.
Iso E Super is one of a range of materials with similar properties, the weakest being Isocyclemone E (which we don’t sell) with higher impact forms available as Timbersilk (from IFF) and Sylvamber (from DRT), both of which are available from Pell Wall.
