Velvione Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Velvione is an exceptional product: a powdery macrocyclic musk that is powerful, highly substantive and stable, as well as biodegradable. Velvione has a nitro-musk aspect that is not found either in other commonly used macrocyclic musks, nor in polycyclic musks. Velvione is excellent in all applications, including fine fragrance, where it adds a powdery volume and musky softness, and laundry care, where its high substantivity and clean musky note are highly valued.
