Benzyl benzoate is a fragrance ingredient with a complex olfactory profile. Its odor is characterized as sweet, balsamic, oily, herbal, floral, and fruity. It possesses a very mild scent that is reminiscent of ylang ylang, almond, cheese, cherry, pineapple, strawberry, and sweet notes. The aroma has a narcotic quality and is described as aromatic, balsamic, powdery, and oily-herbal. Benzyl benzoate is widely used in perfumery as a classic fixative-blender, solvent, and modifier in heavier florals and Oriental type fragrances such as tuberose, ylang-ylang, lily, and gardenia. However, it has been largely substituted by benzyl salicylate when a faint odor is desired. In terms of physical appearance, benzyl benzoate is a colorless to pale yellow clear oily liquid that can solidify at lower temperatures. Overall, benzyl benzoate has diverse olfactory characteristics and is employed as a valuable ingredient in perfumery for its sweet, balsamic, and almond-like qualities.
