The statistical data we collected from 191 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for alpha-hexyl cinnamaldehyde is 5.0%. The typical lower limit is 2.8%, and the usual higher limit is 7.5%. The highest amount of alpha-hexyl cinnamaldehyde we encountered in any single formula is 31%, and the lowest was 0.40%.
Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of alpha-hexyl cinnamaldehyde should not exceed 9.9% of the final product. Assuming that you will be using your formula for an alcoholic perfume at a 10% dilution, this means you should only use alpha-hexyl cinnamaldehyde at 99% or less of the formula.
