gamma-Nonalactone

Intensely sweet, creamy and coconut-like odour. Oily, waxy and metallic undertones. Useful in many florals.
“Its intense sweetness and tenacity is often utilized along with that of Undecanolide (…) in Gardenia, Tuberose, Honeysuckle, Stephanotis, Plumeria, Jasmin and many other heavy floral types.” (Arctander)

gamma-Undecalactone

Medium-smelling, fruity, lactonic, peachy, sweet, oily, powdery. Effective in low concentrations, otherwise it tends to overwhelm other notes and give ‘opacity’. It may also be used in floral compositions, tuberose for instance.
