Banana Juice CO2 (TOTAL)
Adam Michael has this to say “Banana CO2 is mind blowing, the aroma is creamy, overripe banana and alcohol banana throughout, in fact it smells like banana milkshake with with a teaspoon of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey Liquer…..delicious. If you want to build banana notes this is a must material, also useful for building green fruity notes, gourmand accords, and pairs beautifully with cocoa materials. Clear to yellowy-green in colour, pourable and produced from the fruit distillate.”
These juice CO2 wonders are produced by high pressure carbon dioxide extraction of the juice distillates. Created as natural flavours (and they can be used for this purpose) they also have retained the amazing fruity fragrances that make them useful for natural perfumery as well. It has to be noted that these extractions also contain alcohol and water (around 30% alcohol and 40% water) and so precautions have to be taken in their use and transport. They are only available within Australia (sorry those of you in New Zealand) and will be transported by road only. Also, don’t use them in oils burners (obviously) and when used in perfumery, some experimentation may be required when dosing to ensure that the composition does not become cloudy. They are also not miscible with jojoba oil.
Botanical Name: Musa paradisiaca
Safety Data: This product contains ethanol and water and has a flash point of < 20c. This material will not dilute in carrier oil or in diluents such as IPM due to the water content. Therefore this material is solely of use to the perfumer. We advise in perfumery that this material is used at up to about 10% of the composition. If you work with pre-diluted materials at 10% in ethanol then this material should be used neat. For those who prefer to work with pure materials, banana CO2 should be added last because the mixture will go cloudy at that point – once the ethanol is added to dilute to EdT strength it will go clear again – but leaving it clouded for days on end risks bacterial growth starting so isn’t wise.
