During evaporation a subtle white flower-lily of the valley-like, fresh, sweet, delicate nuance appears. It is natural and fragile, deep and beautiful. It is a great addition to any floral composition, especially to neroli, where hydroxycitronellal and other muguet odorants can’t compete with the simple and refined character of this molecule.

Very useful in floral composition @ .1 – .3 % max. It imparts a very realistic effect, a warm natural soul especially in muguet, honeysuckle and jasmine. In too high concentrations it lacks smoothness and imparts an acrid nuance, heasily recognizable during evaporation, especially on skin. I found it useful also in an imitation rum, for its opulent, decayed aspect (that goes well with fruity, woody notes).
It is quite sensitive to daylight and it discolors aldehydes and ketones.
