Description and usage notes:
Toscanol is a versatile product that is particularly useful where regulatory restrictions inhibit the amounts of the more traditional anisic ingredients or where a longer lasting anisic quality is needed. Typical usage level is from 0.1% to as much as 5% when a strongly anisic quality is required, the material has good tenacity (two days on a smelling strip), it is stable in almost all media and can be used in soaps and candles effectively. For a softer, watery anise note try Canthoxal, or for a more powdery heliotrope-style note try Anisaldehyde.
