Vulcain (Pyrogenized)
Olfactive description

Soft but not sweet, with light animalic note and enhanced cinnamic effect. The Pyrogenation process sublimates the original note with an intense warm leathery effect and a radiant dry-down. Usually in Perfumery, the aim is to preserve top notes, freshness, and raw material fidelity. With the Pyrogenation, the target is opposite: heavy, pyrogenized and leathery notes are sought.

Perfumery usage

Known as a fixative, Styrax enhances compositions with chypre and oriental notes.
The VULCAIN range (Pyrogenized) is developed by Firmenich Natural Ingredients Innovation Center and offers a collection of wider and more intense notes than those of the original extracts. They provide a technical solution in the range of leathery notes with a great olfactory potential, and thus a use at very low dosage.

Process

VULCAIN is the name of Firmenich Pyrogenation - A controlled and monitored creation of pyrogenized molecules during a specific heating process.
