Description and usage notes:
An inexpensive way to add a light but very tenacious orange-flower note with a powdery quality to fragrances; it also has some fixative value.
One of the classic perfumery materials that aren’t so fashionable but nevertheless are effective.
Arctander says this of it “Although its odor has often been compared to that of Methyl-athranilate, it represents an entirely different type of Orangeblossom sweetness, without the agressive harshness of the Anthranilate… The material is widely used in perfume compositions, mainly in Neroli, Orangeblossom, Sweet Pea, Magnolia, Honeysuckle, Wistaria, Narcisse, Jasmin, various exotic florals such as Frangipanni, etc. It may have a perceptible effect in the perfume (or base) at concentrations well below one percent, and the effect is particularly noticeable in the terminal notes.”
