Velvione® (Givaudan)


Fragrance Family: Musky

Odor Description: Musky, Powdery, Animalic.
Velvione is powerful powdery macrocyclic musk with some nitro-musk aspects. It is highly substantive and stable, as well as biodegradable. Velvione has a nitro-musk aspect that is not found either in other commonly used macrocyclic musks, nor in polycyclic musks.

Please be aware that this is one of our larger molecules, which cannot always be detected by smell directly from the bottle.

Usage: It is excellent in fine fragrance where it adds a powdery volume and musky softness, and in laundry care, where its high substantivity and clean musky note are highly valued.
