Dihydroactinidiolide (also known as musk coumarin) is a wonderful long-lasting lactone found naturally in black tea, tobacco, fenugreek, and in the scent glands of the red fox. It also functions as a pheremone in red fire ants and certain fruit flies. A very uncommon musk, dihydroactinidiolide is a unique material that enhances and blends with tea chemicals and accords and harmonises wonderfully with tobacco, coumarin and tonka materials. It also has delicate nuances of spices, peach and medjool dates.
Dihydroactinidiolide, like coumarin, is toxic and care should be exercised when handling.
Longevity: Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip.
Smells very "natural". Reminiscent of tea, tea roses, tobacco, saffron, dates, dried fruits, peach, mango, honey, and graham crackers. Forms nice accords with fruits, florals, tea, and tobacco.
