    Piperonal (heliotropin) is the classic material used in perfume since the late 1800s to represent the odour of heliotrope flowers. It is also excellent when blended with coumarin and vanillaand adds a wonderfully different sweet nuance to fragrances. It has a quiet anisic quality to it and blends very well with anisic aldehyde as demonstrated by Jean Carles in his fragrance Canoe (1936) for Jean Patou.

    Because heliotropin (piperonal) is restricted by the DEA in the USA and in many countries at varying levels, we sell this product diluted. However, we can supply it in pure form to customers who have already had a completed (including delivered) previous order with us. When selling undiluted piperonal, we keep a record of purchases for auditing purposes.

    If crystallisation occurs in colder climes, gentle heating may be required to bring this product back to solution.

    Appearance: White crystals, clear liquid in dilution
    Longevity: Lasts > 200 hours on a smelling strip
