Aldehydes became very popular in the 1920s through today. They add a vivid quality to top notes.

A classic example of an aldehydic perfume - Chanel N0. 5.

Aldehydes give perfumes a distinctly individual fragrance. Aldehydes have typified French fragrances. They amplify the top notes and bring a champagne sparkle to a fragrance. Other examples include Lanvin's Arpege, Mme Rochas, Je Reviens by Worth, Rive Gauche by Yves Saint Laurent, and L'Interdit by Givenchy. These perfumes are very sophisticated and modern.

Aldehydes can give a lift to any perfume.

This is a very long-lasting strong accord. Its uses are to give lift, richness, and body. It will remain on the skin as part of a base note.  

Base Note.

recommended usage: 0.1 to 10%

PLEASE NOTE aldehydes are NOT Formaldehydes.

Aroma Accords are blended compounds of aroma chemicals, essential oils and isolates to create a perfect starting point for your perfume formula. 

Our Aroma Accords are undiluted and very strong a little goes a long way.

Glam Oldschool "French" Quality

This smell brings a smile to my lips--- it immediately reminds me of the great French aldehydic perfumes of yesteryear: Chanel No. 5, of course, but also things like Balenciaga LE DIX, Patou CALÎNE, Lanvin ARPEGE and Givenchy L'INTERDIT. This accord smells like French lacy, racy lingerie *looks*. It smells soapy, refined, candle-wax-like, papery, buttery/oily/fatty, transparent. Noble, yet subtly naughty. It smells like a melange of powdered, colored and white florals, dotted subtly with a non-syrupy fruit hint... but no flower or fruit is being explicitly quoted here, and that is its beauty: This magnificent accord is just BEGGING you to flesh it out with specific florals like rose, lilac, violet, heliotrope, ylang-ylang, muguet, tuberose, honeysuckle, and perhaps most stylistically apropos, spicy carnation with a peach hint, a-la Caron BELLODGIA or Nina Ricci L'AIR DU TEMPS. Seated upon a sandalwood, styrax/leather or chypre base it would be swoonworthy (oakmoss, patchouly, tonka, bergamot). Brilliant citrus and galbanum would create a refreshing, stylistically accurate Midcentury head. This is super-glam stuff, and plenty sexy. Undoubtedly feminine, but a skilled nose could weave it into an elegant masculine, or even an oldschool oriental.

This accord is uber strong and you only need a few drops. It is that elusive aroma you find in chanel #5. Love it!
