Most Renowned MUSK Fragrances
This Masterpiece Turns More Scientific
Musk is a heavy base note scent that is usually compared with woody and earthy smells. It was originally the name of the odor coming from a male musk deer, from which it was harvested. Perfumery musks are molecules with subtle scent yet extremely powerful and essential to any perfume formula, even in the smallest quantities. If musks were a color it would be white. Their scent is subtle with a powdery yet almost nothingness smell similar to baby’s skin. KONIKA pioneer’s in musk fragrances.
MUSK PERFUMERY COMPOUNDS
In the last decade several compounds have been developed with the genetic manipulation of musky volatile composition, attempted metabolic engineering for fragrance production in musk odors for the first time this year. These perfumery compounds are among the most versatile fragrances. They have a long history of diversified application.
|Musk.Compounds||Strong Musky, Animalic, Fancy.|
The rapid development of analytical tools for metabolite profiling, allowing the simultaneous identification of thousands of compounds, together with ever increasing genomic, should be highly instrumental in deciphering the molecular nature of pathways leading to musk fragrance production. Thus, coding for new fragrance biosynthetic compounds with musk aromatic ingredients are done according to their application suitability.
Our fragrances are free from alcohol, non-inflammable, non-hazardous, non-toxic and for industrial use only.
There suitability chart is as follows:
|Creams and Lotions||7|
9 = Very Good Performance
8 = Good Performance
7 = Reasonable performance
6 = Fair performance
5 = Mediocre performance
4 = Slight stability problems
3 = Discoloration Problems
2 = Stability problems
1 = Major problems
0 = XX Not recommended for use
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.
MUSK ODOR SCIENCE OF PERFORMANCE
Musk aromatic constituents depends on enantioselectivity of odor perception, which is the strong evidence for the key role of proteinogenic receptors in the molecular mechanism of olfaction. However, where there is strong enantiodiscrimination, the most intense musk odorants gives very low odor thresholds. Thus can assume the geometry of the musk receptor to be fairly complementary to these compounds, which therefore can serve as templates for the design of new musk odorants. Macrocyclic musks are not as widely used as polycyclic musks because of the cost of their synthesis. However they are becoming more and more available because of the advances made in synthesis methods over the last few years. From certain perspectives, macrocyclic musks have advantages in comparison to the polycyclic musks. They seem to smell more intense and so less mass is needed to achieve the same performance in perfumery.
