Benzoin Siam resinoid 50% in DPG is a fragrance extract solution for use in, for example, perfume and air fresheners.


Benzoin Siam resinoid 50% in DPG has a sweet and spicy scent that perfumers call balsamic. It is somewhat reminiscent of the smell of, for example, vanilla. The smell is not very strong, so no further dilution is necessary. A versatile fragrance that adds value to many fragrance compositions. You usually use between 0,1% and 10% of this substance in the fragrance composition.

It goes with many warm floral scents, especially heliotrope, but also broom and jasmine. On the other hand, it also goes well with much greener and spicy scents such as rose and lavender, the effect is different. The smell of many baby products can be achieved with this substance. It is primarily a base note in perfumery and is stable in most products, including soap, although you could also consider the pure, undiluted version that we also sell. In soap it is an excellent fixative, but its use can lead to discolouration.

Because this resinoid, normally a solid, is dissolved in DPG, it mixes and doses easily. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.


Benzoin Siam resinoide 50% in DPG is a yellow to orange-brown, viscous liquid at room temperature. This consists of half DPG and the rest Benzoin Siam resinoide - it has a long shelf life. A resinoid is an extract that is made with certain solvents, usually alcohol. This solvent is removed as best as possible from the extract. The fragrance comes from Benzoin Siam, the resin of the Siam benzoin shrub, or Styrax tonkinensis Craib ex Hartwich. This occurs naturally in South-East Asia, especially in Thailand (=Siam) and Vietnam.

Like the resin, the resinoid mainly consists of esters of benzoic acid, with coniferyl benzoate in particular being strongly represented. Furthermore, the ester of benzoic acid with cinnamic alcohol, free benzoic acid and a little vanillin.

It sometimes appears on the market as an essential or 'essential' oil of benzoin Siam, but this resin is not normally made into an essential oil.
