    Habanolide® is considered a metallic or hot iron musk. It is a macrocyclic musk of the highest quality by Firmenich, indispensable and certainly irreplaceable (though Globalide® by Symrise is frequently touted as such). Habanolide® is a radiant musk which adds freshness and vitality.

    Habanolide® has featured in numerous modern scents. The writers of Scent and Chemistry give by way of example Silver Mist (2006) by Alessandro Gualtieri for Nasomatto, in which it makes up 25% of the fragrance:

    250 Habanolide
    250 Ethylene Brassylate
    125 Scentolide
    25 Cashmeran
    10 Exaltone

    Appearance: Colourless liquid
    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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 49: 100%
    IFRA 51: 100%

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

    Label Requirements

    Ingredients may need to be listed as per your local legislation based on data found in the EU allergens report.

    For Trade Use Only

    “This chemical was found as an impurity in products such as exolide super during an attempt to get better reactions to synthezise exaltolide (Cyclopentadecanolide). It possesses a radiance, elegance and beauty that I find indescribable. The accords including it are limitless. The olfactive strength of the unsaturated macrocyclic musk chemicals is much higher than the saturated ones that have been used for decades, such as muscone, exaltone and exaltolide. Habanolide has been used in many fragrances whose most remarkable example is Bulgari for Men, where its extraordinary, powerful and long-lasting musky effect is imparted along with muscenone δ, another unsaturated macro cyclic musk chemical. Habanolide is, perhaps, one of the most elegant products I know of.”
