      Augustus Oils Ltd, in harmony with nature - to present it at its best...
      A wealth of experience, expertise and knowledge has allowed Augustus to bridge the gulf in expectation and trust between growers and users of natural ingredients. The Company works in partnership with customers on the one hand, and growers, farmers and distillers on the other.

Augustus has invested in modern, well equipped laboratories to provide unparalleled control of quality, and a development environment that continues to produce innovative ranges of natural ingredients. The strength of the company is built on both its comprehensive knowledge base, and extensive stocks of raw materials for both fragrance and flavour use. To complement its range of conventional and Organic Essential Oils and Aroma Chemicals, Augustus also offers a steadily increasing range of its own, UK manufactured Natural Extracts, Absolutes, Resinoids and Natural Chemicals. These again are fully tested and certificated, and very tightly quality controlled.

      Aldehyde C18 Coconut (gamma-nonalactone)
      According to Arctander “This material is one of the most frequently used Iactones in perfumes and flavors. Its field of application reaches from the finest luxury perfumes to inexpensive masking doors, from Gardenia flower bases to Coconut candy flavors, etc. etc. Its intense sweetness and tenacity is often utilized along with that of Undecanolide (so-called Aldehyde C-14) in Gardenia, Tuberose, Honeysuckle, Stephanotis, Plumeria, Jasmin and many other heavy floral types. Modern fantasy perfumes with emphasis on musk and lactones may include the title material and produce unusual fixative effect of overwhelming sweetness, and novel versions of Oriental fragrance types can be made with Sandalwood, Styrax and the tite lactone as part of the base. Its power is often underestimated by the perfumer (if he has no experience as a flavorist) and the lactone will Ĺgrow’ out of the perfume and unpleasantly dominate the fragrance.”

Aldehyde C18 Coconut (gamma-nonalactone)
Odor: coconut, creamy, lactonic, coumarin
Use: According to Arctander “This material is one of the most frequently used Iactones in perfumes and flavors. Its field of application reaches from the finest luxury perfumes to inexpensive masking doors, from Gardenia flower bases to Coconut candy flavors, etc. etc. Its intense sweetness and tenacity is often utilized along with that of Undecanolide (so-called Aldehyde C-14) in Gardenia, Tuberose, Honeysuckle, Stephanotis, Plumeria, Jasmin and many other heavy floral types. Modern fantasy perfumes with emphasis on musk and lactones may include the title material and produce unusual fixative effect of overwhelming sweetness, and novel versions of Oriental fragrance types can be made with Sandalwood, Styrax and the tite lactone as part of the base. Its power is often underestimated by the perfumer (if he has no experience as a flavorist) and the lactone will Ĺgrow’ out of the perfume and unpleasantly dominate the fragrance.”
