    Sotolone is an incredibly powerful sweet material commonly used in flavours but absolutely wonderful for modern gourmand fragrances. Depending on the dose sotolone fluctuates between the penetrating scent of sugar and the exotic and spiced warmth of fenugreek. A truly remarkable sweetener that blends beautifully with members of the maltol family and other sweet "edibles" such as strawberry and maple furanone.

    This material is so powerful and long-lasting that we are offering it at 1% dilution in DPG and we highly recommend diluting it further to 0.1% or even 0.01%, both levels at which it still performs well.

    NOTE: We package all high odour or high risk materials individually in separate heat sealed aluminium bags to mitigate any risk of cross-contamination.

    Appearance: Colourless liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip.

    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.

    Usage Restrictions

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA50: 100%
    EU 1223/2009: 100%

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

    Label Requirements

    Ingredients may need to be listed as per your local legislation based on data found in the EU allergens report.

    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.

    “This is […] a product officially related to the flavor sector, but this classification is not correct. It smells of fenugreek oil and absolute, lovage, and celery. If we have always considered that propylidene phtalide and butylidene phthalide can be used in perfumery, and that they have actually been used in important perfumery bases like Chironiax, why not consider Sotolone, which is much more powerful and diffusive? Why can’t it be used in perfumery?

    Sotolone blends particularly well when carefully and skillfully dosed with β-ionone, dihydro-β-ionone, α-ionol (a more long-lasting and violet-like chemical than those named previously), Violettyne, Violiff, Orriniff (a great orris- smelling pyridine almost unknown to everybody), the diverse irones, Myrrhone, the various quinolines, and the so-called Emoxyfurone (which, although extremely powerful, is slightly less so than Sotolone). The material also blends well with Precarone, Vetykone, woolfwood, Tetrascone, Prysmilate and its alcohol Prismantol (a woody, spicy, important chemical), Taba- none, Tetrahydronaphtalenol, Oxo-Edulan and other tobacco chemicals, the diverse damascones, and strong coumarin-like chemicals such as ethyl laitone (these latter materials also blend quite well with Homo-furonol). I believe Sotolone will be used in future, and perhaps we will see a new generation of fragrances influenced by it — naturally extremely dosed.

    Sotolone, as Homofuronol, is among the most diffusive chemicals I know. It works quite well too with so-called celery ketone, Toscanol and other rare products. Products like Sotolone and emoxyfurone must be handled with an extreme care since they can impart a total flavor note if not properly dosed. If properly dosed, its fenugreek tonality is wonderful.”

    Smells great but...

    It smells very nice; coffee, maple syrup scent, quite potent. But I expected that it would be stronger. Sotolone 1% was supposed to be a power house but I find it project quite weak. Perhaps, it needs to further dissolute?
    Also after couple of weeks the scent seems to weaken and I cannot smell any of maple syrup coffee scent anymore. Its more of "just" sweet scent.
