Linalyl Acetate

Linalyl acetate is an aromatic chemical, usually appearing as a clear liquid with a sweet floral-green aroma. This compound appears as a component of some of our fragrance blends.

Linalyl acetate can be synthesized for industry from acetic acid and linalool, however it also occurs naturally in plants such as cardamom, clary sage and lemon, and is a chief component of both bergamot and lavender essential oils. This ingredient often appears in fragrances, either as an additive or as a natural component of the essential oils used in the fragrance.

Studies indicate some people can be sensitive to linalool and its chief component linalyl acetate; this ingredient should be used with care.
