Appearance @ 20 degrees C: Brown, oily liquid
Odor: Characteristic, smokey, burnt
My first 'sniff' of this material reminded me of a brisk Autumn day, around a camp fire .. That deep smokey, burnt fireplace scent that permeates the air with the coming of the winter season.
Distilled twigs and leaves (needles) from the wood.
A brown oily liquid with an intense 'tar-like' smoky-phenolic odor. Its use in Perfumery is limited to situation where a smoky-leathery, woody=phenolic, dry and warm note is called for: forest notes, leather bases, fougeres, pine for 'men's fragrances, etc.
Cade oil has certain disinfectant properties for which it can be utilized in soap perfumes, for example combined with thyme, origanum, clove and similar phenolic oils. If the discoloration creates no serious problem, blend with cassia, melaleuca alternifolia, etc.
Cade oil finds occasional use in flavoring of meat and seafood to which it imparts the 'smoke' note.
Caution: External use only. Do not use undiluted on the skin.
Keep away from children & pets. Store away from heat & light.
