Alpha-Pinene Natural Isolate
Adam Michael has this to say “Chiefly a head note, this alpha-pinene natural isolate has a dry-woody, piney-refreshing and also lightly camphoraceous character. Used in perfume compositions, it will impart an open air and breezy pine forest nuance in the top notes. Alpha Pinene is one of the most common components found in natural scents and is therefore naturally occurring in a multitude of essential oils too, making this natural isolate extremely useful to impart lift and refreshing naturalness to perfume compositions.”
Arctander has this to say “Its odor is warm-resinous, refreshing Pine-like…a minor ingredient in other compositions: artificial Lemon, Bergamot, Nutmeg, Geranium, Lavandin, etc.”
Extracted from pine essential oil.
