"similar products from other suppliers are Floriffol (IFF), Florol (Firmenich) and Pyranol (BASF) - although minor differences in odor may occur due to slightly different processes."
It exists, but it's captive. Givaudan - Mahonial.Whoever finally comes up with a 1:1 replacement for Lyral will become very wealthy, very quickly.
I have done a lot of experimenting with Beyond Lilyflore. IME & IMO, it is not in the slightest bit having effects like a lyral replacer. It is much more opaque than lyral, scent character is dryer, and it's nowhere near as tenacious. This material is AFAIK about 10% lilyflore, and if you want some transparent floralcy/floral volume/muguet effects, lilyflore on its own can only be used in the range of fractions of 1% of formula.What about 'Beyond Lilyflore' which is a blend of Mayol, Florol and Lilyflore. Has anyone used this as a successful Lyral replacer?
I was not surprised that the IFRA restricted the use of Lilial and Lyral to make it impossible for small independent perfumers to compete.
After all, who "invented" the IFRA, weren't it the big companies producing perfumery products and perfume manufacturers?
I would bet money that IFRA has been raided as part of the international cartel investigation announced two months back.This isn't remotely accurate.
Captives exist to protect business (to stop other houses doing what many on this forum want to do: copy everything via GC). IFRA restricts materials because they are sensitizers.
...On 7 March 2023, the European Commission carried out unannounced inspections at the premises of companies and an association active in the fragrance industry in various Member States.
IFRA restricts materials for many reasons, based on the varying interests of its private sector members, and not just for one reason. The idea that IFRA only has the public interest in mind is false. IFRA is about protecting profits of members, and this probably has violated international antitrust regulations.The Commission has concerns that companies and an association in the fragrance industry worldwide may have violated EU antitrust rules that prohibit cartels and restrictive business practices (Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union).
