Methyl anthranilate has a floral scent reminiscent of orange blossom. The scent is strong and can be unpleasantly overpowering. Making a dilution of, for example, 10% can therefore be useful, for example use DPG or TEC. Typical use is in various floral accords, in addition to orange blossom, especially gardenia, jasmine and tuberose. You usually use between 0,1% and 5% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It combines well with citrus, but also with leather scents, honey and musk. In addition to the typical orange blossom note, it also adds something animalic to the scent. In perfumes it is mainly a heart to base note, it is stable in most products, including soaps.

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


Methyl anthranilate is an almost colourless to orange-red liquid at room temperature. The substance has a fairly long shelf life. It occurs in nature, but for use as a fragrance the synthetic version is used.

This substance is usually supplied as a liquid, even at temperatures below the specified melting point of the substance. In certain circumstances or in certain batches the substance may be solid.

With aldehydes this substance forms so-called Schiff bases. This will also happen in a perfume or fragrance composition, which can cause the scent to change as it matures. Schiff bases are often strongly coloured, the same applies to products with methyl anthranilate: these often discolour over time.
