    Default Benzyl Alcohol & Benzyl Benzoate

    Hello Everyone

    1. Do the Benzyl Alcohol & Benzyl Benzoate play as a solvents or co-solvents role in the perfume with the main solvent (Ethanol)! ? What are their main purposes

    2. Does the GC P-20 officially included in the IFRA as an ingredient ?

    Thank You

    Benzyl benzoate is usually added (in large volume) for floral sweetness.
    The natural sweetness from many types of flowers actually come from benzyl benzoate, so it is not really that unnatural.

    In certain fragrance oil concentrates, you may find benzyl benzoate used as the main ingredient where it practically functions as the solvent, but these fragrance concentrates are not intended for direct consumer use.


    I'm not entirely sure, but I would imagine benzyl alcohol is more pungent/sharp than benzyl benzoate. Doubt it would be used as a solvent.

    One of its purposes might be to help act as a preservative, though it does have a smell of its own. Probably similar to phenylethyl alcohol (wilted rose, rose potpourri sort of smell, not really the most pleasant aspect of rose but certainly reminiscent of rose).

    They are odorants, used to make perfume blends.

    Yes, likely, but you'll have to look it up.

    BTW, I reply for the benefit of refael_sakura, since OP has not been on BN for the past 5 years.
