Description and usage notes:
Here presented at 10% in MMB to make it more affordable and for ease of use, we also stock the undiluted crystals if you prefer.
Another neglected perfumery material that deserves to be better known, here in solution in MMB, the crystals dissolve slowly in ethanol up to about 5%, it has fixative properties and is a useful modifier for many fragrance types particularly with floral and chocolate or incense notes.
Here’s Arctander talking about its scent: “Sweet, balsamic-floral odor of considerable tenacity. lt has notes in common with Vanillin but is not as sweet and not as Vanilla-like, more floral and slightly greener.”
The material would probably see much wider use but for its relatively high price
