    Exaltolide is such a wonderful and versatile musk it has been in steady use since its discovery in 1930 first as a secret component of many great bases, but then directly in fragrances such as Jean Carles' masterpieces Tabu (1932) and Miss Dior (1947) — at around 0.35% with 3.5% each of Musk Ketone and Musk Ambrette

    Exaltolide is most often found in doses below 1% but it can be effective at up to 8% and beyond as seen in Jasmin Noir (2008) by Carlos Benaim for Bulgari and Champs Elysées (1996) by Jean-Paul Guerlain and Olivier Cresp for Guerlain.

    Our Exaltolide is produced by its inventor Firmenich and is the finest quality on the market. They say that Exaltolide “adds depth and roundness to a wide variety of creations. It offers synergy on the bouquet of a fragrance. It has an especially sensual effect on skin.”

    Odour: powdery, soft, animal (deer), tobacco, natural.

    Appearance: Colourless liquid; solidifies in low temperatures.
    Longevity: Lasts > 400 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.

    Permitted amounts in finished product:
