Cassis notes are very important in perfumery and are mostly associated with ingredients containing a sulfur atom. The discovery of Cassiffix® was serendipitous in nature. IFF R&D were aiming for synthesis of novel cyclic ethers with oxabicyclooctane structures anticipating an amber odor based on the campholenic backbone.
