Olfactive description

Rosy-fruity, Damascone, saffron note.

The closest olfactive profile to naturally occurring Damascone, among all the Damascone esters.

Perfumery usage

FIRASCONE® is the closest cyclogeranate to the entire palette of rose ketones.

Structured to perfection with subtle notes of saffron, it provides an endless source of inspirations for rosy and fruity creations.

Due to its clean regulatory profile (cyclo-geraniate), FIRASCONE® can be used like traditional Damascones, without the dosage limitations.

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 ?

Firmenich is recognized for its rose ketones which are now under the scope of IFRA limitation due to sensitizing effects.
Corresponding esters are not sensitizing and Firmenich has developped many patented synthetics in this range. (Cyclo-geraniates)
