Exaltone (Firmenich)


Exaltone (Firmenich); aka cyclopentadecanone
Fragrance Family: Musk

Odor Description: Musk, sweet, animalic, powdery
Powerful musky odor, very similar to that of Muscone (Methylcyclopentadecanone) and, in the opinion of many perfumers, superior in type and beauty. It ranks among the finest and most efficient fixatives known, and like Cyclopentadecanolide it improves the wearability of a perfume when properly incorporated in the fragrance. Its power becomes more perceptible and evident in extreme dilution, e.g. below one percent in the perfume oil.
