Our ALDEHYDIC Products Used By
Billions of Consumers Everyday
An aldehyde is an organic compound containing a terminal carbonyl group. This functional group, called an aldehyde group, consists of a carbon atom bonded to a hydrogen atom with a single covalent bond and an oxygen atom with a double bond. Thus the chemical formula for an aldehyde functional group is -CH=O, and the general formula for an aldehyde is R-CH=O. Aldehydes give perfumes a distinctly individual fragrance. Aldehydes have typified French fragrances. They amplify the top notes and bring a champagne sparkle to a fragrance.
ALDEHYDIC PERFUMERY COMPOUNDS
These are olfactory chain of the long-chain fatty aldehydes. This is a typical, fatty-sweaty, somewhat pungent and soapy olfactory note. The spectrum ranges from almond, fruity green nuances to ironed laundry fragrances and metallic nuances right through to ozone, ocean-like and waxy scents. Some of the aldehyde fragrances are related to the smell of human skin and perspiration.

Please Note: Due to the fact that our fragrances are very concentrated, we suggest that you test our fragrances in finished products before you make any conclusions about our fragrances. Since our fragrances are so strong, we suggest only using 0.5 to max 4% in any finished product. Our testing notes should never take the place of your own personal testing. Always test fragrance in finished (product) applications.
ALDEHYDIC SCIENCE OF PERFORMANCE
The carbonyl group is of central importance in organic chemistry because of its ubiquity. The simplest carbonyl compounds are aldehydes and ketones. A ketone has two alkyl (or aryl) groups bonded to the carbonyl carbon. An aldehyde has one alkyl (or aryl) group and one hydrogen bonded to the carbonyl carbon. Aldehydes are actually a family of ingredients: they can be metallic, starchy, citrusy, waxy. Since aldehydes and ketones contain a polar carbonyl group, the partially positive carbon atom can act as an electrophile. Strong and weak nucleophiles are able to attack this carbonyl carbon, resulting in a net addition to the molecule. In general, each nostril of the human nose is tuned to smell certain odor molecules better than others due to slight turbinate swelling between the nostrils. Generally, these chemical compounds provide a soapy-waxy-lemony-floral touch to aromatic formula.
