Just wow. Has qualities other musks don't
William Roberts (Clearwater,, FL) 6/19/2019 10:23 AM
Traseolide is a musk, but functionally to me it's almost in its own category, that you might call "enhanced skin smell." By which I mean, a material or accord that if used alone, has the effect of seeming not really like fragrance so much as "Wow, what great smelling skin this person has!" Still smelling like skin. That's obviously different than other musks or most materials (a great sandalwood and a few other materials can be like this also, in different ways.) Pell Wall perfumes says it's also a great fixative, enhancing how long top notes last, at amounts up to 10% of concentrate. Obviously that's really different to the powerful musks, which also have fixative properties but would be overpowering at even a fraction of that amount. Personally I haven't gone that high, I think the most I've used is 70 ppt. An outstanding material.
It's BIG!

This '18' carbon polycyclic musk molecule might be difficult for some to appreciate. It is a very large molecule that luckily I have no trouble smelling or using. I love this cleaner,'whiter' musk material and use it frequently. When fragrances are created that display a musk tonality, perfumer's utilize every tool in their arsenal, so you will find a combination of various musk materials used in the same formula. Macrocyclics together with Polycyclics along with the newer class of Alicyclics all combine to give everyone the benefit of being able to smell them regardless whether they're anosmic to one or the other. Equality for ALL! LOL...great stuff, love it!
Not detectable

I tried a sample of this. I wanted to like it but I agree with another reviewer in that it is barely detectable. Maybe the creaminess is only a subtle effect that comes out once in a blend. I'm not sure as I haven't tried it in a blend thus far. If it were more detectable I could properly rate it, but for now I'll give it 2 stars.
Goes well with Bacdanol

I purchased this because it's in my favorite fragrance (Incense Rose). I later read that it blends well with sandalwood molecules because of its creaminess, so I tried it with Bacdanol and Ebanol. It definitely blends well with those two. It otherwise has a typical polycyclic musk vibe along the lines of Galaxolide, albeit not as a strong.
Faint white musk

A very low-level musk that can be faintly detected from the vial, but not on skin or on a testing strip. Extremely faint material that would presumably work as shading in a mix.
