Olfactive description

A sophisticated and modern musky note reminiscent of Ambrette seeds. HELVETOLIDE® also conveys richness and warmth.

Its volatility due to its unique chemical structure adds presence to fragrances top note. Its aura is felt from top to bottom.

Perfumery usage

HELVETOLIDE® offers excellent volatile pear-like facets and smooth ambrette undertones in all applications. Its unexpected volume and richness propelled HELVETOLIDE® as a cornerstone of perfumery ingredients.

HELVETOLIDE® fixates without suppressing a fragrance, it can skew floral notes and smoothens fruity notes without functional perfumery connotation.

It performs particularly well in liquid applications (alcohol solution, shampoo, body wash) and emulsions. It is one of the few “top note” musks.
