Olfactive description

An elegant, transparent floral, jasmine note with citrus freshness.

HEDIONE® develops a beautiful natural smoothness and radiance in a wide range of perfume types.

Perfumery usage

Besides use in jasmine and its floral family, it gives original effects in virtually all fragrance types.

HEDIONE® exalts floralcy in a perfume.
It does not necessarily increase strength, but does bestow presence, noticeability, and diffusion. These three key words all provided by a material that is by itself quietly understated and easily underestimated.

Used at a concentration of between 2 and 15%, but can be used at levels of 35% and above.

Process

Chemical synthesis corresponds to the construction of complex chemical compounds from simpler ones.
Our R&D follows the principles of Green chemistry whenever possible.

Did you know ?

HEDIONE®, cornerstone of an entire family of molecules, was discovered by Firmenich scientist, Dr. E. Demole in 1958 as part of the methyl jasmonate synthesis.

HEDIONE® brings to mind the old adage, "He who wishes to be heard will always whisper".
