The odour and uses of Phenylacetaldehyde 10% in DPG
Odour=> Dilution of Phenylacetaldehyde 10% in DPG Refer to constituent materials for more information
Odour=> Neat Phenyl Acetaldehyde has a intense and powerful green floral odour reminscent of Hyacinth, Syringa and Lilac.
Synaesthesia=> Deep Green, Flowery, Watery, Watercress leaves, Nasturtium, Pond, Monet' Water Lily Pond, Stravinsky's Rite of Spring
Perfume-Uses=> Phenyl Acetaldehyde is useful to help capture the calyx and leafy notes in all floral types especially Hyacinth, Syringa, Lilac, Carnation (in traces) and Rose
Tips=> Phenyl Acetaldehyde is a very powerful and can be quite irritant, so it should be used sparingly in perfumes to avoid overpowering the other ingredients and not becoming irritating. IFRA used to require it to be mixed 50% with PEA (Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol) to quench its irritantcy (this technique is no longer IFRA accepted despite it working). This 10% dilution in DPG is a good place to start with this material if you are not familiar with it
Just-try-it=> If you're looking for a green flowershop fragrance, heavy, humid, intense effect.
