The closest olfactive profile to naturally occurring Damascone, among all the Damascone esters.
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.
Chemical synthesis corresponds to the construction of complex chemical compounds from simpler ones. Our R&D follows the principles of Green chemistry whenever possible.
