    Benzyl Isovalerate is a heavy floral and fruity material which lacks the penetrating sweetness of its more famous cousin benzyl acetate. It is well suited to oriental fragrances and is a wonderful addition to rich florals, in particular jasmine.

    Nuances of sour milk with a vague hint of emesis belies its true nature as an ester of butyric acid. However, despite the unpleasant associations of that acid, Benzyl Isovalerate has the positive effect of adding naturalness to fruit and gourmand accords and fragrances (especially apple and pineapple). 

    Benzyl Isovalerate excels in doses below 1% and blends exceedingly well with Ylang Ylang, Dimethyl Benzyl Carbinyl Butyrate, Cis 3 Hexenol and its esters, Benzyl Acetate and most fruit materials. Try it with a touch of benzoin resinoid in an oriental scent.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 100%
    IFRA 49: 100%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...
