With a scent that is fresh and pure, floral aldehyde is an organic compound with an auspicious start. Though aldehydes occur naturally, the first synthetic compound was developed in 1921 by noted perfumer Ernest Beaux. The French-Russian Beaux was working on a new batch of nine perfumes for Coco Chanel when, the story goes, he accidently added too much synthetic aldehyde. But too much was a good thing in this instance, and that particular perfume—No. 5 in Beaux’s suite of fragrances—became the iconic Chanel No. 5.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
