 2,95 incl. VAT  2,44excl. VAT


Benzyl acetate is a fragrance for use in, for example, perfume, cosmetics or air fresheners.


Benzyl acetate has a sweet, fruity floral scent reminiscent of candies, though some think of nail polish remover when they smell it. The fragrance is not very strong, so it can be used undiluted. Benzyl acetate is widely used and often in larger quantities. Use it as a general floral scent, in blossoms, jasmine and other white flowers. It is also a valuable component in more green floral scents such as lily of the valley and lilac. Besides for flowers, it is also used in fruit scents such as almond and apple scents. You usually use between 2% and 30% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It is primarily a top note in perfumes and is stable in most products, even reasonable in soap. Making a dilution is not common or useful. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.


Benzyl acetate is a clear, colourless to pale yellow liquid at room temperature. The substance has a fairly long shelf life, only quite some time after the expiration date the fragrance will change from the standard. The substance occurs in nature, for example in flowers of jasmine, hyacinth and gardenia. For use as a fragrance, the synthetic version is used, in general we supply a Symrise product.


The 10 and 50 ml packaging is made of brown glass with a black cap. The 250 g and 1 kg pack is made of aluminium with a stopper and a white cap.
