Arctander is a bit lukewarm about this material: “Its peculiar type of green note has tempted some perfumers to use it in Jasmin and other florals, but it seems that competition from many new ‘green’ materials is far too strong. For masking and for room sprays, it can introduce very pleasant variations in Lavender and Hay fragrances, and its power and low cost make it attractive in cet’tain ways.”
