    When I don‘t need to look on the price and I guess hobby perfumers don‘t need it, I would use L-Citronellol instead of racemic Citronellol (the regular quality). At a time when chemical industry wasn‘t yet able to supply huge quantities of monoterpenic aroma chemicals (it starts after world war II), perfumery Citronellol rich fractions of Geranium Oil, which is almost identical with L-Citronellol. It is much more natural soft rosy/floral and lacks the soapy fattiness of the rac. version. Very versatile and delicate.

    For most intents and purposes it´s a “nicer” Citronellol.

    Common Citronellol, to me, usually has an harsh, somewhat sparkly, aspect to it which i associate with a certain kind of lemon candy. This laevo-Citronellol lacks this aspect and is simply smoother and more petal like.

    Depending what you are aiming for you might prefer one or the other, but if you want to create a smooth rose, most of the time you might prefer the laevo-citronellol-

    It reminds me of what a double distillation can do for a material. This is how I view L-Citronellol. Refined and the dirty edges are removed. It definitely is not one dimensional. I get many aspects of rose in this one molecule. This is a material I cannot live without, and I highly recommend it.
