    Geosmin is the chemical responsible for the smell of freshly turned soil and spring rain. It is one of the most powerful chemicals in nature and it is familiar to everyone, often eliciting shouts of glee from non-perfumers who thrill at the ability of a perfumer to bottle such a beloved smell.

    It is diluted here to 1% in DPG but is still very powerful; it is often used at 0.1% or even 0.01% in fragrances and blends. Traces add a natural earthiness and inimitable quality to patchouli or vetiver scents, while a very careful overdose gives interesting effects.

    Geosmin is a radiant and adds power and diffusion to any fragrance.

    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...

    For Trade Use Only

    Our products are intended as building blocks in the perfume creation process; they are not to be applied to the skin undiluted.

    These raw materials are for use by the perfumery trade only.
