    Question Minerallic, astringent aroma material?

    I'm looking for something that has a minerallic, astringent smell. Is there anything out there like that?

    Closest that I know is witch hazel, but I want something more "minerally." Thanks.

    If you want something on the medicinal and astringent side, like witch hazel but more "minerally", then you may wish to try 2,6-xylenol or o-cresol.

    However, if you mean without a strong medicinal facet, then you could try ambrinol, ambroxan and seaweed absolute. Mineral aspects in wine are often attributed to sulphur-containing compounds, so you may also want to add a trace of something sulphurous.

    What comes to my mind immediately would be Norlimbanol (astringent and a bit mineralic), Angelica root (mineralic and a little bit astringent) and Sweet Birch (Betula lenta, medicinal, a little bit mineralic and and kind of astringent).I also agree with 2,5- and 2,6-Xylenol.
