    Default Cherry

    Questions from another thread compelled me to find out more about benzaldehyde as a possible common component of heliotrope, bitter almond and cherry...

    According to this web site, heliotrope and bitter almond have the same main component in common, benzaldehyde:

    Here is a useful source that lists different suppliers of benzaldehyde and the scent characteristics of some of them. Many descriptors state almond, cherry or both. Click through to the suppliers, eg, Vigon, to 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:

    Found this quite interesting.

    If anyone is interested in cherry-like fragrance but wants something a little bit less harsh/sharp smelling than benzaldehyde, acetylbenzene is reputed to smell like cherry and orange blossoms. Chemically, it is a ketone rather than an aldehyde so it should not be irritating to the nose/respiratory tract in higher concentrations.

    Also, while benzaldehyde is certainly the most characteristic component in the fragrance aroma of cherry, it's not the only note.
