Naturally present in most plants, Cis-3-Hexenol has the characteristic odour of fresh cut grass. In perfumery, it is used in many floral accords such as lily of the valley, gardenia and peony, but also in fruity accords such as apple, peach and pear. Its fresh, green scent lends a natural tone to any composition. In food flavoring, this molecule is used to create fruit and vegetable aromas. In the beer-brewing industry, it is used as a flavour-standard for green notes found in certain beers.
