UseMethylcyclopentenolone has a scent that in pure form is first reminiscent of liquorice and licorice, then caramel, hazelnut or coffee with a lot of sugar and milk. The smell is not very strong, but it is a solid (powdered) substance. Making a dilution of, for example, 10% can therefore be useful. The substance is used in small amounts in accords with hay, lavender, tobacco and certain herbs and spices such as celery seed and coriander. In that case, you usually use traces of up to 0.5% of this substance in the fragrance composition. In addition, it can be used in larger quantities in sweet scents around chocolate, vanilla, caramel and nuts, for example for museum fragrances. In that case, a dosage of up to at least 10% is possible. It is primarily a top note in perfumes, stable in most products, including soap. A solution is best made in DPG or alcohol.
PropertiesMethylcyclopentenolone is a white to beige solid in powder form at room temperature. The purity is at least 99%. The substance has a fairly long shelf life. The substance occurs in nature, but the synthetic version is used for use as a fragrance.
PackagingThis substance is packed in white plastic (PP) jars with a lid.
DangersMethylcyclopentenolone is not classified as a hazardous substance (REACH/CLP). We also recommend that you handle all fragrances with care. An allergic reaction is unlikely.
