Description and usage notes:
Magnolan is very attractive floral, light, fresh and immediately pleasant to most people it’s also very substantive and so useful in continuing floral notes into the base of a fragrance.
Arcadi Boix Camps, writing in 1999 tells us that “This is a very old product introduced in the 1960s as a very good functional chemical to be used in detergents and, later, in fabric softeners. It has finally found success in fine toiletries. I have always liked magnolan.”
It can last for well over a week on a smelling strip, so best thought of as a base note with middle note aspects. If you’re looking for something in a similar vein, but in a more citrus direction, try Citrolate.
