    BASF, founded in 1865 as a dye maker, has come to produce some of the best aroma chemicals. Boasting high purities and a quality much appreciated by perfumers, they are the top of the class in many instances. 

    Citronellol, a key component of rose and geranium, is often viewed as a fairly uninteresting and standard material which seldom receives the scrutiny it should when selecting raw materials. That shouldn't be the case so we did the comparative testing so you don't have to.

    Amongst the numerous qualities of Citronellol we evaluated, BASF's Citronellol 98 came out on top, a clear winner. 

    Citronellol is rich and rose-like, deeper than Geraniol (which it complements greatly) and waxy. It has more of a rose's leafy character than the other rose alcohols.

    Citronellol blends beautifully with Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol, Geraniol Extra, Rose Oxide Laevo, and Rhodinol ex Geranium Bourbon.

    Appearance: Colourless liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 60 hours on a smelling strip

    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: 12%

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