Fennel Essential Oil Sweet CAS 8006-84-6

“Sweet Fennel Oil is a colorless or pale yellow liquid with a very sweet, but slightly earthy or peppery-spicy odor and a clean, sweet-aromatic dryout. There is a hint of a fruity-fresh topnote in fresh oils. The flavor is warm-spicy, aromatic, then sweet and only faintly burning.”
“Synthetic anethole is now produced in such a pure and organoleptically acceptable quality that the anethole-carrying essential oils have little to offer in the countries where synthetic anethole is produced or readily available. In rough terms, Sweet Fennel Oil is hardly more than an anethole, modified with limonene, phellandrene and trace amounts of other components which exercise surprisingly little influence upon the odor and flavor of the oil.”
