Eugenol Natural Isolate
Adam Michael has this to say “Obtained from clove bud and very similar in aroma profile which is not really surprising as eugenol generally accounts for over 80% of clove bud oil. This aroma displays the spicy, warm, somewhat sweet and dry woody facets we all associate with smelling clove bud oil. Within perfumery this material is a staple for building carnation accords, spicy Oriental notes, it provides good effects within many floral bases and it also pairs very well with black pepper and sarawak pepper oils.”
Note that this material is restricted by IFRA to 0.5% of the finished alcoholic fragrance: still quite a lot for such a high-impact material.
Extracted from clove bud essential oil.
