      953327 Koumalactone® 10% TEC
      This sweet tonka bean, tropical coconut / lactonic molecule is often used as a coumarine replacer or to add gourmand notes to any fragrance. It is ultra powerful and can be used in low dosages to mask base odors. Excellent performance. Can be used to replace or enhance Coumarin. Due to its over powering strength, it should be dosed 10 times less than Coumarin. More stable than Coumarin in detergent.

      Unusual Raw Materials
      Expanding the pallet of avid amateur-perfumers.
      This website is the result of my own attempts at getting hold of aroma chemicals that were hard to come by. At least in the amounts required by hobbyists. My goal is to offer an ever-changing portfolio of fairly unusual raw materials in order to continuously expand the pallet of avid amateur-perfumers.
