Odor Description/Information from Paul Kiler (creator)
(Note this material contains synthetics)
PK Vanilla Absolute replacer is a molecular reconstruction of Vanilla Absolute, starting with a vanilla bean tincture, and adding in the many aspects of the real absolute, the fruity, and phenolic, and spicy aspects, and bringing up the vanillin content, the vanillic molecular materials, etc. Many difficult to obtain molecules, all that are found in a GC-MS analysis of real vanilla absolute, were employed to match the real vanilla absolute extremely faithfully.
When I first thought about buying a replacer for my own perfumes, I bought so many replacers, from so many suppliers. Everything that I found was inadequate to the task, so I endeavored to make my own perfect replacer. It is not inexpensive to make, but until the cost of real vanilla comes back down, this is a very cost competitive and odor realistic solution /substitution. I perceive it to be similar to a 50% alcoholic dilution of Vanilla Absolute.
It does not employ any vanilla oleoresin, which I found not to be adequate, or odor capable to work with for a vanilla replacer. I cannot recommend using Vanilla Oleoresin for a substitute, or even a portion of a substitute where the finest results are needed.
