Melonal has a fresh green scent that is reminiscent of melon, violets, but also sea wind and clean laundry. The scent is strong, so you often use very little of this substance. Making a dilution of, for example, 10% in DPG, for example, can therefore be useful. Typical use is in fresh green fragrances, especially those containing fruit or marine scents. You usually use between a trace and 1% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It combines well with fresh scents and fruit scents. It adds a fresh, green, fruity accent. In perfumes it behaves like the other linear aldehydes: it is often present in the top, but evaporates slowly and is therefore strictly speaking a base note. It is stable in many products, including soaps and candles, but not in very acidic products or bleach.

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


Melonal is a colourless to yellow liquid at room temperature. The purity is at least 85% and the substance has a limited shelf life, replace it at least annually. It occurs in nature, but for use as a fragrance the synthetic version is used.
