N-methyl ionone

CAS Number: 1335-46-2

The statistical data we collected from 143 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for N-methyl ionone is 2.5%. The typical lower limit is 1.5%, and the usual higher limit is 5.0%. The highest amount of N-methyl ionone we encountered in any single formula is 13%, and the lowest was 0.15%.
Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of N-methyl ionone should not exceed 30% 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 N-methyl ionone at 300% or less of the formula.
