    Default Fixonal Heiko, ever heard of it?

    Hi All,

    Looking at an older formula that calls for Fixonal Heiko. I've googled and searched a couple sources and am not seeing anything here. Anybody have any clue what it could be or used to be?

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe a variation of Hydroxycitronellal? https://www.perfumersworld.com/view.php?pro_id=3MC00233 lists it as a synonym for "Fixanol" not "Fixonal" though.

    Interesting. "Heiko" seems to be missing from that particular synonym as well. Hydroxycitronellal would not be out of place in this formula. I wonder.

    Anybody else have any leads?

    Both the words Fixonal and Heiko seem to appear in Poucher, based on websearch, but my hardcopy is at home and I don't have an electronic copy.

    Fixonal is synonym for Hydroxycitronellal, per Arctander Chemicals book, entry 1728

    Heiko would be the manufacturer of the raw materials.
