    Mellitis is the classical Givaudan mellis base launched in 1921. It features a perfectly balanced heart of carnation accented by rose, jasmin and wild flowers. It was a favourite of Jean Patou's perfumer Henri Almeras who used it in overdose to great effect in Moment Supreme (1929) where he blended it with lavender and aldehydes.

    Mellitis can also be used as fixative base and small quantities add complexity and warmth to any fragrance dry down. Use up to 14.9% in your finished product for compliance with IFRA 50.

    IFRA51: 14.99% of finished product (Cat. 4)
    Appearance: Gold liquid

    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:

    IFRA51: 14.99%
    IFRA 49: 14.9%

    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.
