Eleonora Scalseggi has this to say “Naturally extracted from coconuts, this Gamma Octalactone Natural Isolate is another delightful lactone that is very close to coconut aldehyde in aroma profile but is sweeter and even fresher and lighter, closer to the heavenly scent of fresh coconut pulp and less reminiscent of the fattier dry coconut flakes.
Used in combination with aldehyde C18 it will help building very true-to-nature coconut accords for tropical-infused perfume accords, but it will also prove invaluable to impart a sweetly ripe note in fruity compositions and to soften the rough edges or other harsh off-notes of your perfume.
Gamma Octalactone Natural Isolate can also work well with other gourmand notes and in particular with our natural coumarin, with which it shares some aromatic features, but it lifts them more towards the head of the composition, whereas the coumarin would tend to sit back with the other base notes.
Like with aldehyde C18, also with Gamma Octalactone a light hand is highly recommended to impart just the right amount of coconut-infused creaminess and sweetness: used in that way it is a truly lovely material and a very useful addition to the perfumer’s palette.
Arctander has this to say “.. is a powerful Coconut-coumarinic odour with herbaceous-spicy, almost Caraway-like and warm notes. Slightly greener, but less fatty than the n-Butyl butyrolactone, also more Caraway-like. Moderate tenacity. It does not have the tenacity of Coumarin, but it introduces the olfactory effect “higher” in the fragrance, and may therefore be used as an extender for Coumarin-like effects into the top note of a fragrance. This lactone is used occasionally in perfume compositions as a modifier for Coumarin, and as a sweetener in heavy floral fragrance types, e.g. Gardenia. It gives interesting effects with Opopanax in Lavender compositions, and in Chypre, Fougere, Ambre and Oriental types with Tolu, Peru, Ylang-Ylang, Civet, Ionones, etc.”

While Aldehyde C18 is quite horrible straight from the bottle (but it does impart such lovely creaminess to the composition), this is a totally different thing. It is like coconut water to C18’s coconut milk (well, amplified coconut milk with added mushrooms for a bonus). Much fresher and light – especially at the beginning – but creamy and sweet later on (it does remind of coumarin just so slightly – like the description says – but also resembles that vanilla fullness a bit). All underlined with a lactonic spiciness – if that is a thing :).

I bought this oil to create fig composition with other notes but i realized that this is beauty is the picture of summer under the sun near the beach in Bahamas..the best coconut mouth watering, creamy, fresh sweet dessert i ever encountered..with a little fantasy you can use it with rose alba,gardenia, and for any gourmand perfume
