    Linalool really needs no introduction; it is one of the most commonly used aroma chemicals today. It is abundant in nature with the oils of Rosewood (Aniba roaeodora, not the type Pianos and stringed instruments are made from, Dalbergia nigra) and Shiu wood (also known as Ho wood) containing the highest amounts naturally (over 80%).

    In combination with its ester Linalyl Acetate, Linalool can be used to create the effect of citrus freshness without its characteristic odour of oranges or lemons. This makes it incredibly useful for novel top notes.

    Linalool blends extremely well with Dihydromyrcenol and the entire citrus family where it can modify and extend those notes. It has a light woody quality and also blends well with most materials in that category also.

    Our Linalool comes from BASF in Germany which makes extremely fine aroma chemicals. BASF is our preferred supplier for many standard materials due to their meticulous care in manufacturing. No other supplier produces such a clean and true Linalool.

    Warning: This is a raw material for the manufacture of perfumes. Do not consume. Do not apply directly to skin. Keep out of reach of children.

    Fraterworks® is strictly a reseller of this product and is neither an agent nor official distributor for BASF.

    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.
