Cinnamic Alcohol Natural Isolate

Mark Evans has this to say “Cinnamic Alcohol (also called cinnamyl alcohol) is a warm, spicy, powdery, dry cinnamon smelling material that is fantastic for use in goumands, spicy christmas scents or in hyacinth bases. It’s also used a lot in soap fragrances.

This natural isolate of cinnamic alcohol has been created from the fractional distillation of styrax oil (Liquidambar styraciflua) and the result is warmer and softer than the somewhat harsh synthetic version. There is a definite muskiness from the styrax underlaying the cinnamon note which adds an interesting depth of character. An essential addition for the natural perfumer’s palette, this extremely useful material always shows up in lists of ‘must have’ perfumery ingredients.”

Extracted from styrax essential oil.
