The odour and uses of Bourgeonal 10% in TEC
Odour=> Dilution of Bourgeonal 10% in DPG Odour=> Bourgeonal has a fresh floral watery muguet note lilial like aldehydic character and a woody sandalwood depth. Reported to have Pheromone like properties with males tending to be more sensitive to it and attracted to it.
Perfume-Uses=> Floral fragrances especially Muguet, Rose aldehydic compositions like Rive-Gauche, Calandre,
Occurs-in=> Muguet, The odor of lily of the valley, specifically the ligand Bourgeonal, was thought to attract mammalian sperm. The 2003 discovery of this phenomenon prompted research into odor reception, but a 2012 study demonstrated instead that at high concentrations, Bourgeonal imitated the role of progesterone in stimulating sperm to swim (chemotaxis), a process unrelated to odor reception.
