Description and usage notes:
All the velvety-smooth character of the best vetiver, but without the harshness or smoky-notes that can be present in the natural oil. Produced from vetiver oil from Haiti – widely regarded as the best you can buy. This is the very top quality of acetylated vetiver oil, here offered at 50% in ethanol to make it easier to pipette and more affordable. We also offer the undiluted material here.
Nevertheless some people prefer the softer, creamier quality of vetiveryl acetate derived from vetiver from Java so we offer that too.
Note that in this product the whole oil has been acetylated, followed by fractional distillation, as opposed to acetylation of the vetiverol only, hence this has a different CAS number from the Java derived material.
Arctander speaks very highly of this material: “The beauty of the odor is only fully appreciated when the material is incorporated in a suitable perfume. The peculiar dry-sweet note does not appear with a woody tone, but it gives fresh lift, yet outstanding tenacity and warmth to a fragrance.
Although this ester can be used in almost any type of perfume, it has its most attractive effect in Chypres, modem aldehydic perfumes. compositions with Ionones, Opopanax, Olibanum, Orris, etc. and it is nearly perfect for powder perfumes.
Many world-wide known, very successful fashion-perfumes owe part of their success to this item, although the idea of using a very large proportion of this ester in a luxury perfume is older than most of the perfumers working in today’s laboratories. Which only confirms the success of the material – virtually unsurpassed through many decades.”
Note that the documentation relates to the undiluted material.
