Description and usage notes:
This isomer of geraniol was first identified in neroli oil and has a more watery and rosy soft-floral quality than the cheaper geraniol.
Arctander says this of it: “This alcohol is widely and frequently used in perfumery, but not nearly in the volumes of Geraniol and Citronellol. It lends a freshness to a rose base which cannot be obtained with the two other alcohols. But it also finds use in a variety of sweet-floral fragrance types, Mimosa, Magnolia, Lilac, Neroli, Alpine Violet, Jasmin, etc. or in Citrus colognes, Muguet, Orchid, etc. its effect is perceptible often at one or two percent in the composition.”
