Macrolide Supra (Sym) has a somewhat sweet fruity musk scent. The odour is quite strong, however because the substance is solid at room temperature it can be useful to make a solution. Making a dilution of 10% can actually be done in all common solvents, if you heat on a water bath. For a more concentrated solution, IPM is a good choice. Typical use is in a musk accord. You usually use between 0,2% and 20% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It combines well with other musks, as well as floral and fruit scents. In perfumes it is mainly a base note, it is stable in most products, including soap.

Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.


Macrolide Supra (Sym) is a colourless solid at room temperature. We pour this in the molten state into the packaging, after which it solidifies. The purity is at least 98,5% and the substance has a fairly long shelf life. Men are said to smell this substance better than women, but there is no convincing evidence to support this idea. By the way: as with almost all musks, there are relatively many people who do not perceive the smell at all. It occurs in nature, angelica extracts contain up to 5% of this substance. For use as a fragrance, the synthetic version is used. This version has been made since 1927, at the time a very good achievement, it is not an easy process. Other names for the same molecule are omegapentadecalactone and Exaltolide. The manufacturer is the German company Symrise.
