Description and usage notes:
This material from IFF is described by them as “Delicate but powerful hyacinth, narcissus, reseda note with some sweet pea, string bean and green aspects”
It is a heart-note, lasting about 24 hours on a smelling strip.
Arcadi Boix Camps, writing in 1985 tells us that it is “… another important and relatively unknown chemical of extraordinary fragrance between narcissus, reseda, hyacinth and magnolia. It is a minor ingredient in the perfume Alliage, another one of those giants in the world of perfumery that brings together some green notes with odors of incense, costus and ambergris as well as some spicy notes with a lightly woody, Helional, musky galaxolide, hexadecanolide background.”
