Cashmeran is a compound without which one could hardly imagine modern perfumery. In recent years, the word cashmere has been seen more often in official press releases, although it is still mentioned in a much more mysterious way as Bois de Cachemire there is no such tree, Musk de Cashmere or Blond Wood. Cashmeran was first synthesized in 1968 by John Hall of the IFF. Yes, this is the same person who gave Iso E Super to mankind. Cashmeran is often nominally included in a group of polycyclic musks [compare the formula of cashmeran with galaxolid which is one of the more popular musks], but given its scent, it could be placed between woody and musky scents . The smell of cashmeran is complex and multifaceted, with pronounced musky and woody nuances, it also incorporates a rich spicy component, a balmy vanilla aspect, reminiscent of old paper, as well as distinct notes of conifers and fruits. The smell of cashmere is often compared to a tactile impression of cashmere wool. This is how he got his business name. Among the first cashmere perfumes, Sport by Paco Rabanne 1986 and Cacharel Lou Lou 1987 are often cited. The olfactory profile of Cashmeran is unique, but at the same time quite versatile; it can be used in almost all kinds of perfumes. The cashmeran fits as well in virile woody compositions as in elegant floral chypres. Another quality of cashmere is romantically described as the scent of tanned skin. It is a specific, slightly animal salty effect which appears at a dose of less than 1 percent. Sometimes it's likened to the smell of wet asphalt. Under certain conditions, the cashmeran produces an interesting mineral context inside the perfume. Usually the amount of cashmere in perfume rarely exceeds 2 percent this is not cheap, but there are exceptions. A quarter of Maurice Roucel's formidable work, Dans Tes Bras, is made of cashmere. The first impression you get is a woody and salty coniferous smell, which is enhanced by a salicylate complex and balanced by heliotrope and violet. Roughly the same amount of cashmere is found in Nasomatto Duro, a spicy, leathery alpha scent. There is almost no perfume of oud without cashmeran. The number of oud compositions with natural oud decreases drastically, and as the synthetic oud tuning becomes more present, cashmere generally makes a generous part of it. In its pure form, cashmeran represents a crystalline mass melting at 27 � C 80 � F, so if you are given a bottle of liquid cashmeran, it means that you need a shower at that room temperature more than you need to shower. smell anything, or it's not really cashmere. As in the case of polycyclic musks, cashmere is not water soluble and very hydrophobic. This quality makes it unusable in the manufacture of various odorants for the household, in particular in detergents, fabric softeners, shampoos, etc. If the cashmeran falls on the fabric or the hair, it is very difficult to wash off. Some of the substances whose structure is very close to cashmeran are: Nebulone, a captive invented by IFF, represents an effort to make cashmere longer and heavier, that is, to move it to the side of musk. You can smell the nebulone in J. F. Schwarzlose Berlin Zeitgeist. Trisamber, aka Woody Furan, is also an IFF product, which possesses a dry woody amber odor and impressive substantivity, diffusivity and strength. Trisamber's close relative is Amber Xtreme, which was also a captive product of IFF before being listed for public sale the following year. Amber xtreme plays a key role in Paco Rabanne Invictus. Both trisamber and xtreme amber were used to recreate a paper scent in Geza Schoen's Paper Passion. Amber xtreme is part of the Cashmeran Velvet perfume base, which is composed of Iso E Super and cashmeran for a long time it was the only fragrance material available that contained xtreme amber. This is what we have now, but looking at the formulas of new compounds similar to cashmeran, we can guess the nearest future of cashmeran odor production. On the left is the derivative of Quinazoline, patented in 2014. It has a more intense smell which is quite close to cashmeran, but softer, more floral, amber, woody and powdery. On the right side is a compound synthesized by Givaudan. In addition to cashmere characteristics, it has a smoky appearance of vetiver and oud, and floral pink, fruity raspberry, powdery iris and animal undertones.
