    The text also said that bitter almond and cherry are in the same family...I can't dig in too much right now, so I'll check later and repost.

    Sorry if I 'm dragging this but I 've been wondering about that for ages. It says in the text that bitter almonds and the seeds of apricots and cherries contain similar oils. The cherry scent as it is found in cough syrup or lozenges does not include the bitter almond flavor of the cherry pit.

    Hey Guys, I received my bottle of Casran today and had to sample some on my wrist. Though not an easy scent
    to detect, due to the aftershave strength, my impression was that it was a bit perfumy. Certainly not as masculine
    as M7 and Varvatos. It certainly smells pleasant enough though, so I expect to give this one a go.

    OK, here is a useful source that lists different suppliers of benzaldehyde and what the scent characteristics of some of them are. Many descriptors state almond, cherry or both. You can click through to the suppliers, eg, Vigon, and see the spec sheet and aromatic description (in this case, "characteristic cherry"):

    Here is a Google Books excerpt which talks about how benzaldehyde is the main component in cherry juice and how benzaldehyde is important as an ingredient in synthetic cherry flavorings:

    Oh, and by the way, I am wearing L'Heure Bleue extrait today...the first few hours are cherry-vanilla-almond, kind of jammy and pastry-like.

    I remember that I had a formula for making a cherry accord for fragrance and benzaldehyde was key.
