burning oils in lemon peel, woodiness in lemon, astringent sharp
Parker Turtenwald (Olympia, WA) 11/12/2019 9:52 PM
lemon terpene smell, in a simple sort of sour way. kind of a sharp lemon edge, or the woodiness in lemon. similar to a Pine-Sol feeling but much sharper and more abrupt note. There's no sweetness or fruitiness here. smells somewhat reminiscent of lemon but not citrus. refreshing, very clean. more of a faint smell with a strong edge. kind of astringent, very slight tang in a distinctly lemon sort of way. the burning sort of oils in lemon peel.
It's Limonene's mirror...

This is a citrus note...mostly...only the left-handed version of its big brother enantiomer d (dextro)-limonene. While d-limonene is more citrus-like on the order of orange, orange peel, l (laevo)-limonene is more citrus-y/terpenic/green along the order of Dipentene. It is useful as a modifier where you can create some original effects. Dose carefully, but neat, in most applications. Either way I believe it to be a necessary adjunct toward a complete organ.
