Alpha Damascone has a fruity scent reminiscent of apple, mint and blackcurrants. The fragrance is quite strong and the substance lends itself to use in small quantities. Making a dilution of, for example, 10% in DPG or TEC, for example, can therefore be useful. Typical use is in fruit accords, especially apple, but also berries, pear, plum and other fruits. You usually use between 0,1% and 2% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It combines well with many floral scents, especially rose, but also fits well in tobacco compositions, tea scents, green and herbal accords and wood scents. All in all, it is a versatile fragrance. In perfumes it is mainly a heart note, it is stable in most products, including soap.

In the European Union, the use of Alpha Damascone is restricted in cosmetics, to a maximum of 0,02% in the final product.

Store in a cool, dry, dark place and out of the reach of children.


Alpha Damascone is a colourless to pale yellow liquid at room temperature. The purity is at least 91% and the substance has a fairly long shelf life. It occurs in nature, but for use as a fragrance the synthetic version is used.
