Molecular Formula: C8H8O3
This chemical is the key component of the natural vanilla odour and is characteristic of vanilla based scents and flavors. In this form it is one of the most widely used of all perfumery materials, used in all types of fragrance in small doses. Vanillin comes as white to cream colored crystals, that dissolve readily at low doses in most perfumery materials and in ethanol. High doses can become sickly-sweet and amounts above 8% of the perfume concentrate are rarely used. It has some useful fixative qualities as well, particularly with floral accords.
Odor Description: sweet-vanilla, creamy-chocolate
