    When you say floralizer.... what exactly do you mean?

    More diffusion, enhancement, definition etc. etc

    Not a challenge but a genuinely curious question.

    I think of a floralizer as more towards the lines of citronellol/al, or lyral or linalool.... still floral things to sort of make flowers 'lighter' and more transparent.

    Absolutely. I don't think there is a single, general "floralizer", but then I don't really understand the term. It depends on what flower note(s) you want to emphasise. A general floral smell, the smell of a Flower Shop for example, seems to me to be wet and green; something like Stemone.

    I've just mentioned methyl phenyl acetate in another thread which incidentally fits here too. Even in tiny doses it turns otherwise not so floral blends into nectar.

    To 'floralize' a perfume could also mean to add central body to a skinny perfume IMO. An enormously 'fat' jasmine can do that or a luscious rose otto.

    I personally use the term to mean a general floral ingredient that can be pulled in many different directions - and can provide the main body of a floral fragrance - something like flour does in a cake. And mine would be ethyl linalool / coranol, also florosa, and amyl/hexyl cinnamal. And of course Hedione which is in its own special category.

    Finding pleasant results with methyl jasmonate (Splendione), in the diffusion floralizer sense a good buy from Perfumer Supply House.
    Rosalva, in a make-floral floralizer sense.

    Lyral and florosa are the most generic in my opinion if you want to introduce a floral aspect in a non floral perfume
