Sweet and balsamic
Benzyl benzoate is a clear and colourless liquid with a faint balsamic and sweet odour.
It occurs naturally in essential oils such as ylang ylang, rosewood, cinnamon and benzoin.
When these essential oils are not used in a product, Benzyl Benzoate can be added in its synthetic form because of its amazing scent and excellent solvent properties. Indeed, it dissolves other perfume materials, allowing them to blend more easily.
