Also referred to as “Perillaldehyde” and “Perillic Aldehyde,” this aromatic chemical can be extracted from numerous botanicals and essential oils. Berjé’s synthetic perilla aldehyde has a fresh and spicy aroma most reminiscent of cinnamon, cumin, or shiso. As such, it provides a pleasant spicy note within warm fragrances. Perilla aldehyde also has a sweet, woody, and somewhat waxy flavor that pairs well with citrus ingredients such as lemon and lime.
