Perfumer's Notes

This aroma molecule, aldehyde C18 or gamma-nonalactone, is widely used in perfumery to create a coconut note or add creaminess. It's wonderfully versatile; at lower concentrations it adds warmth and softness to a fragrance without giving off a distinct coconut odor, and at higher concentrations it provides a lovely, creamy coconut note. Use up to 10%.
