Well Iso E Super has to be the most talked about perfume ingredient in a long time! This stuff is special! Add a little hocus pocus magic to your perfumes and aftershave.....
Geza Schoen sums Iso E Super up so well we had to include a link to his description.
Known for its effect as well as its subtle strengthed aroma, Iso E Super is a key ingredient if you want your perfume or aftershave product to have impact. A smooth, velvety, woody note with amber undertones, Iso E Super wafts in and out disappearing and then reappearing at wonderfully regular intervals.
But don't just include it in your blend for the aroma - this ingredient definitely adds a little hocus pocus to your product. The wearer will notice an interesting impact on other people and enjoy a feeling of radiance and self-satisfaction. Cathy (exPlush Folly) likes to wear it as 'when I do, I think I fancy myself!'
Reported to react in a pheromonic manner, Iso E Super tinkers with emotions and feelings to bring a relaxed, happy, flirtatious element to those lucky enough to come in contact with it.
Create a magical blend with other essential and fragrance oils then dilute in our perfumer's alcohol. Or simply dilute it with our perfumer's alcohol and wear it as is.
The aromachemical name of the Iso E Super trademarked name is 7-acetyl, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydro-1,1,6,7-tetramethyl naphthalene - we prefer the shortened name!
We are often asked if this is the same as Timbersilk. The answer is yes and no! Yes in that they share the same gamma isomer, yes in that they smell remarkably similar - but in our experience Timbersilk offers a stronger aroma.
Make your own blackcurrant leaf accord - blend equal parts of stemone, iso e super and hedione.
