    Question Materials that smell like pure alcohol? (sharp, hot, penetrative)

    Hi all,

    I was hoping to get some advice on what kind of aroma chemicals could give me a clean and simple hot/sharp/penetrative pure alcohol smell. Something that literally smells like 95% perfumers alcohol, where you get that nose burning sensation.

    I've tried a number of materials, but the problem that I usually run into is they either smell too sweet/fruity/fragrant (eg. Cognac Green), or they smell too much like a specific cleaning chemical (eg. Tea Tree Oil), or they smell too cool/minty like Vicks VapoRub.

    I can't seem to find anything that is just a simple sharp/hot note.

    I really appreciate all the help I can get on this!

    Any of the strong woody ambers.

    In increasing strength (to my nose):

    Karanal
    Norlimbanol
    Amber Xtreme
    Ambrocenide
    Z11 / amber ketal

    Thanks very much editorinscent for your kind help, I will look into those.

    I wonder if anyone here is familiar with the compounds found in Tea Tree Oil (various terps, etc.) if any of those could have a similar sharp/hot smell? I was thinking perhaps if I bought all compounds in Tea Tree Oil maybe I could take out the compounds that have a 'cleaning chemical' smell, and perhaps I might be left with a sharp/hot smell?
