Thread: Heliotropin Replacer
I have some Heliotropin only in a low concentration of 2.5% and I have not yet tried the IFF Heliotropin replacer (Heliotropex N). I cannot believe that it is some "new" chemical, it will
rather be a mix of known chemicals. Does anyone here have a clue what IFF uses to imitate Heliotropin? Can anyone recommend the IFF Heliotropin replacer or any other one?

Thank you for the advise, Chris!
They state it's a "Trade Secret" that means it must be a mixture of known chemicals as you said, because if it was a new one they would just patent it and declare the molecular structure, being protected on the market by the patent itself.
Essentially they are selling a very simplified "vanilla perfume" as a note.
