UseMethyl benzoate has a fresh green scent reminiscent of wintergreen, eucalyptus and mint. The smell is strong and easily overpowers, making a dilution of, for example, 10% in, for example, DPG can therefore be useful. Its typical use is in certain floral accords, especially tuberose and ylang ylang, but it can prove useful in several other floral scents. You usually use a trace of up to 2% of this substance in the fragrance composition, more is not a problem, but there is then a considerable risk of a predominant smell of methyl benzoate. It adds a green freshness reminiscent of spices. It is mainly a top note in perfumes and is quite stable in many products, it can also be used in soap. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.
