    Intensely animal. Those two words really do sum up this powerful chemical. Para Cresol is one of the most versatile materials, finding use as a floraliser in the direction of narcissus and an animaliser; without it such magnificent bases such as Jasmin Blanc, Animalia® CMP and Animusk™ Extra wouldn't exist.

    Under IFRA 51 this has been restricted to a tiny 0.005% but its power makes it still a fully useful material even at that level. It is perhaps one of the least common "essentials". 

    Due to its potency, we also sell Para Cresol in a 10% solution with DPG.

    If you want something kinder and gentler, we recommend the ester of this alcohol: Para Cresyl Caprylate.

    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.

    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: 0.005%
    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.

    Pleasant Paracetamol-like Odour at 1%

    I was surprised to find this product smells similar to paracetamol, it is lightly floral but "noisy" with a bitter crushed pill nuance, earthy and possibly leathery, with a slight similarity to benzoates. Highly useful due to this odd note. I enjoyed the mixture of this ingredient in traces with methyl anthranilate.
