    An unctuous floral, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde is the key building block to some of the most famous muguet bases and is found in fragrances such as Eau Sauvage (1966), Gabrielle (2017, Chanel — demonstration formula below), Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue (2001), and Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille (2007).

    When constructing a jasmine base, this material is preferred over its close relative Amyl Cinnamic Aldehyde, owing to the fact that the hexyl version is sweeter and more floral. Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde tempers the harsh character of Benzyl Acetate and other strong jasmine chemicals while providing a light and discreet unisex floral heart note.

    At room temperature, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde is liquid but at lower temperatures it may solidify. A little heat will return it to a liquid state. Importantly, Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde can sour quite quickly so it is recommended that you buy small quantities often, rather than bulk amounts and refrigerate it.

    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: 9.9%
    IFRA 49: 9.9%

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