UseLinalool is an extremely versatile fragrance. If you were to make a top ten of the most versatile fragrance materials or most commonly used fragrance ingredients, linalool would be in it. The reason for this is, among other things, the scent, which has aspects of flowers, citrus, herbs, greens and fruit. Most people find the fragrance pleasant, but this fragrance also mixes well with many other scents. On fragrance compositions it has a kind of unifying effect, like a varnish that closes small holes and cracks. It may be for this reason that many perfumes contain linalool, less than 5% linalool is almost uncommon. The scent is not particularly strong, undiluted use is common. You usually use between 2% and 20% of this substance in the fragrance composition. In perfumes it is mainly a top note, it is stable in most products, including soap. Store in a cool, dry, dark place and out of the reach of children.
