Very useful for adding richness and depth to white florals and fruity accords as well as creamy notes in gourmand types. Note that this powerful odourant is supplied by Givaudan as a 10% solution in DPG, which is what is offered here.
Description from Givaudan: “Odor: Lactonic, Creamy, Coconut Milk, Coumarin. Use: Methyl Laitone 10% is one of the new ‘spiro’-lactones developed and patented by Givaudan. It is extremely powerful and very effective in all accords where a creamy, fruity volume is required. It provides ‘cosmetic’ body to white flower notes such as jasmine, gardenia, tuberose and ylang ylang, and to fruity accords like peach and osmanthus. In sandalwood accords it provides milkiness. Coupling with coumarin and hay notes makes it extremely interesting and polyvalent. Its dry note is very noticeable, especially on humid and dry fabric.”
