Cinnamic Aldehyde Leads Modern Perfume

Jan. 06, 2020

Some people say that the aldehyde of perfume is formaldehyde.

The aldehydes in the fragrance table tend to scare beginners. Isn't this air pollution? Isn't it exhaust gas for decoration? Isn't it carcinogenic? How can I spray it on my body?

The first choice needs to be clear. Modern perfumes are all complex chemical compounds, not by deep forest wilderness, but by chemical laboratories. Most of the beautiful plant or animal names you see in the fragrance table are "chemical compounds that can simulate this taste". The aldehyde in perfume refers to Perfumes Fixative containing aldehyde group. Classic perfumes that have used aldehydes include: Chanel No. 5, Chanel No. 22, Lang Van Arpeggio, Estee Lauder Pure as Wind, Saint Laurent's Left Bank, Guerlain Midnight Flight, Givenchy Isatis and Miss Dior.

In 1921, perfumer Ernest Beeks introduced aldehydes into the perfume industry when he created Chanel No. 5. Chanel No. 5 is considered to be the first "modern perfume" in the industry to use aldehydes. This is also Chanel 5 one of the reasons why the name is famous. Strictly speaking, in fact, Guerlain's perfume was the first perfume to use aldehydes after the shower in 1906.

Chemicals such as aldehydes are usually one of the main components of perfumes. Not only can they make the flavor of the perfume stronger, but they can also make all the ingredients in the perfume have better compatibility and last longer. The large amount of aldehydes has changed the history of perfume forever. Since then, the perfume world has added a unique fragrance, because it is usually combined with floral fragrance. It is generally called "aldehyde floral fragrance" and is an important branch of floral fragrance. The taste of excess aldehyde is often boring, and the combination with the floral fragrance can sharpen its edges and corners, and at the same time make the original low-eyebrow floral fragrance firm and magnificent. The combination of cinnamic aldehyde and flowers is soft and artistic, so Cinnamic Aldehyde is often used in floral fragrances.

Cinnamic Aldehyde 

The cinnamic aldehyde used in perfumes usually gives the impression of soap, metal, cold or water. Before the advent of Chanel 5, Guerlain had used a small amount of aldehyde-based compounds to create a sparkling image of water in the classic "after the shower". In the new millennium, there has been a great change in the taste of perfume, and refreshing and neutral have become the mainstream of the market. Many clever perfumers re-enable the aldehyde as an "excessive actor" and even made it the protagonist, no longer trying to cover up its "defects", and even intentionally zoomed in, thus obtaining a silver spoon with the smell of extinguished candles taste and so much fun, modern aldehyde fragrance, unisex.
