Odor Description:fresh, amber, aldehydic, moss, sweaty-musk, citrus, tuberose, metallic, waxy, coumarinic
Arctander writes enthusiastically about it, including: “This aldehyde is probably one of the most preferred perfumery aldehydes with respect to ‘aldehydic topnote’. It blends very well with Galbanum, the Hexenyl family or the Methyl phenyl carbinyl esters, the Methyl-ionones or with Oakmoss. … It lends excellent notes to a ‘Tabac’ base and blends well with Vetiver for such purpose. In Mimosa it will supply part of the peculiar dry notes, and in Ambre fragrances it is an almost inevitable component. Interesting effects are achieved with Ginger oil and Clary Sage.”
