Use: Also called musk indanone, Cashmeran is an unusual and distinctive ingredient that is very widely used. It has a rich, spicy quality that is also woody and clean. Presented here in pure form it needs to be warmed gently to become liquid, but once that is done it is easy to use. Normally used at up to 2% of the concentrate.
Odor: Diffusive, spicy, musk-like odor with strong floral reinforcement. Powdery, velvet nuance. Long lasting. Aromatic, apple, earthy, woody, red fruit, pine
Odor: MUSK, WOODY, SPICY

Odor: Musk-like, spicy, floral, fruity, rich, musty Solvent
Use: Description from IFF: “Diffusive, spicy, musk-like odor with strong floral reinforcement. Powdery, velvet nuance. Long lasting. Aromatic, apple, earthy, woody, red fruit, pine.”
The paper copy of the IFF Compendium, where this material is classified as an amber rather than primarily a musk odourant, tells us that it was first developed after analysis of an impurity in the GC for another material and that improvements in the production process since then have increased the option for its use significantly. We are also told that it makes “great combinations” with “Timbersilk, Citronellol, Iso Eugenol, Delta Damascone” and is “useful in creating spicy carnation florals, amber musk notes, orientals and woody accords”.
In the words of the authors of Scent and Chemistry, “Cashmeran is a unique synthetic odorant which combines floral-fruity musky with conifer-type woody aspects in perfect balance. High proportions of around 25?% of Cashmeran were used by Maurice Roucel in “Dans Tes Bras” (Frederic Malle, 2008), and by Alessandro Gualtieri in “Duro” (Nasomatto, 2007).”
Furthermore, “Cashmeran and Kephalis are key ingredients in the trendy oud/agarwood accords. Cashmeran especially links the dark woody side to the animalic musky side of oud with its coniferous woody aspects and its unique floral-fruity musk tonality.”
Arcadi Boix Camps writing in 1985, classifies Cashmeran as a floral odourant while acknowledging the difficulty of placing this unique material in any category. He says it is “a strong, floral, musky product of great diffusion and personality” that “combines very well with green grass , as well as derivatives of cis-3-Hexenol, Triplal and such blends as amber, floral, coiraceous, and woody. It combines especially well with Allyl Amyl Glycolate, which it enhances, producing a radiance.”
He goes on to say that “it is interesting to note the effects of Cashmeran with subtle, fruity chemicals and ethyl levulinate and allyl caproate and with blends of methyl nicotinate, myrrh resinoid and absolute Maté.”
Cashmeran is normally solid at room temperature, and although its melting point is usually quoted as 27 Centigrade, in practice it takes the addition of quite a lot more heat energy to melt it than that might lead you to expect.
