UseGeraniol has a sweet floral scent reminiscent of, for example, geranium and rose. The scent is medium strong and does not dominate quickly. Typical use is in floral accords, but it also pairs well with citrus and other fruit scents. You usually use between 0.5% and 20% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It combines well with other floral scents other than rose and geranium, adding a warm note. It is primarily a heart note in perfumes and is stable in most products, including soaps and scented candles. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.
PropertiesGeraniol is one of the rose alcohols, a fragrance with a certain aspect of rose scent. It therefore occurs in the scent of rose and in the natural rose extracts such as the essential oil, the absolute and the rose water. It also occurs in various other essential oils. For use as a fragrance, we almost always supply a synthetic version with a purity of at least 98%. The substance is liquid, clear and not colored or slightly yellow at room temperature. It is one of the most commonly used fragrances. Older literature often states that synthetic geraniol is not suitable for use in perfumery, but the quality of the current substance is so good that it is certainly not necessary to use an isolate. This also applies to products with a high fragrance quality: the pure version we sell is very suitable for this.
PackagingThe 10 and 50 ml packaging is made of brown glass with a black cap. The 250 g and 1 kg package are made of aluminium with a white cap.
