Very mild, almost non-smelling, nondescrpit, oily, sweet, floral odour. It tends to oxidize to benzaldehyde, which is strong-smelling and easily ruins its floral profile.
“Used in perfumery as a blender, in some florals quite extensively, Jasmin, Gardenia and Lilac may often be composed using Benzyl alcohol although this material is really dispensable in most cases.” (Arctander)
