    Default Popcorn smell with naturals

    Hi guys,

    What notes and materials do you associate with the smell of popcorn?

    Any natural material suggestions are welcome!

    Cannot think of a natural that would work; maybe Wheat abs or Bran abs. The key chemical is Popcorn Pyrazine (2-Acetyl Pyrazine) , closely followed by Popcorn Pyrimidine.

    Thanks david, I allready thought this would be a hard one!

    What are the differences between Wheat and Bran abs?

    Well done Mr. Adam, I hadn't thought of that. Wheat abs (Ble abs) smells like grain, floury. Bran abs (Son abs) smells greener and more floral.

    Thank you. I'd gotten a sample of this some time ago and on first sniff it reminded me of movie theater popcorn. Have to use with a gentle hand or it smells rancid.

    I do have one of the chemicals that smell exactly like popcorn. To do this naturally would be interesting.

    The corn....
    Something nutty and yeasty. Hazelnut abs, sweeter woody notes, maybe sandalwood or cedar, hay abs, bran abs, rice bran abs, a touch of lavender might be hayish,

    The cooking aroma.....
    Olive abs, or as Adam says, butter abs

    The burnt side of corn....
    Tiny micro dot of birch tar or Cade but seriously micro, maybe coffee as a darker edge off sweet, liquorice,

    The sweet side....
    Obviously vanilla but there are many more than one sort, maybe fenugreek for a maple note, molasses, carnation is sweet and spicy, Tonka of course

    Seedy coat side....
    Caraway in micro dose, orange in micro, capsicum,
