Description of 3-Octanol

Sweet and intensely herbaceous, 3-Octanol is an aromatic chemical that finds widespread use in many different perfumery compositions. The chemical is often used as an alternative for spearmint or lavender, as its warm, deeply herbaceous odor works excellently in cologne-type fragrance blends. In lower concentrations, 3-Octanol can also impart a powerful warmth that might otherwise be difficult to obtain using any one single ingredient. 3-Octanol finds limited use in flavor, mainly as a trace component of coconut flavorings.
