Caution!Please read all information below and our general product information before purchase. Not intended for use in food, vape liquids or other internal use. Intended to be mixed with other fragrances: on its own, the scent can be dull or even unpleasant. Do not use undiluted on the skin: it is a raw material, not a finished product.
UseMethyl atrate has an odour reminiscent of an important aspect of oak moss and tree moss. The scent is not particularly strong, but it is a solid. Making a dilution of, for example, 10% can therefore be useful. Suitable solvents are DPG, TEC or alcohol 96%. Typical use is as a (partial) replacement of oak moss and tree moss extracts. It is much less odourous than oakmoss and treemoss absolute, but is the only other substance with certain characteristic mossy odour aspects. You usually use between 0,1% and 5% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It goes well with woody, chypres and fougeres fragrances. Other scents in which it can be used are wood, earth and mushrooms. In perfumes it is mainly a base note, it is stable in most products, including soaps and candles. In very acidic products (pH < 3) there is a risk of problems and in bleach it is better not to use it. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of the reach of children.
