UseStyrallyl acetate has a green fruity floral scent reminiscent of rhubarb, for example. The scent is not particularly strong, undiluted use is usually no problem. Traditional use is in gardenia accords, but that is more of a perfumer's tradition than based on the scent of gardenia. The tirade of the Spanish perfumer Arcadi Boix Camps against this tradition, which can be found in several of his books, is almost comical. Useful books by the way for every perfumer, he gives his unvarnished opinion about many other fragrance materials and their use. Styrallyl acetate goes well with many other floral scents, such as rose, violet, but also lilac and hyacinth.
You usually use between 0,1% and 3% of this material in the fragrance composition. It combines well with green and fruity floral scents, as well as with fruit scents. Don't just think of green fruits such as pear and apple, it also goes well with mango and banana. It is mainly a top to middle note in perfumes and is fairly stable, also in soap.
