This text has been automatically translated and may contain errors. alfa Irone is a fragrance for use in, for example, perfume or cosmetics.
Usealfa Irone has powdery iris scent. The odor is medium strong, so no dilution is necessary. Typical use is in iris and wood chords. You usually use between 0.1% and 1% of this substance in the fragrance composition, but that is mainly because of the high price. There is basically no reason why you shouldn't use 10%, or more. It goes well with floral scents like rose and violet and with fruit scents like blackcurrant, raspberry and plum. It is primarily a base note in perfumes and is also stable in soap. It is less stable in very acidic products. A frequently recurring question is whether alpha Irone cannot simply be replaced by jonones. Indeed, the scents are very similar and in many cases considerably cheaper jonones can be used. However, for a more experienced perfumer it can make a difference. The diffusion of alpha Iron is better than that of the jonones, which means that special effects can be achieved. However, that requires experience.
