"A COMPOUND AND PERFUMING COMPOSITION THEREOF"
|Abstract||The present invention relates to a compound of formula: wherein R represents a linear, branched or cyclic, C1-3 hydrocarbon group, and the wavy line indicates that the substituents on the epoxide moiety may have a cis or trans configuration. The present invention also relates to the perfuming composition comprising the said compound.|
|Full Text||The present invention relates to a compound and perfuming composition thereof.
The present invention relates to the perfume industry. It concerns more particularly a compound of formula
wherein R represents a linear, branched or cyclic C1-3 hydrocarbon group, and the wavy line indicates that the substituents on the epoxide moiety may have a cis or trans configuration. The compounds of formula (1), or a mixture thereof, may advantageously be used as perfuming ingredients.
The invention also concerns the compositions or the articles comprising as active ingredient at least a compound of formula (I).
To the best of our knowledge the compounds of the invention have never been reported in the prior art, nor suggested or anticipated.
Indeed, the closest analogues reported in the literature, in terms of chemical structure, are the compounds disclosed in WO 00/14051, However, said analogues not only have a different chemical structure, i.e. a ketone group instead of an epoxide moiety, but possess also organoleptic properties which are different from the ones of the compounds according to the present invention.
Description of the invention
Surprisingly, we have now established mat a compound of formula
1. A compound of formula:
wherein R represents a linear, branched or cyclic, C1-3 hydrocarbon group, and the wavy line indicates that the substituents on the epoxide moiety may have a cis or trans configuration.
2. The compounds as claimed in claim 1, wherein R is an ethyl group.
3. The compound as claimed in claim 2 wherein the said compound is (1S,1'R)-l-(3',3— dimethyl-l'-cyclohexyl)ethyl trans-3,4-epoxyhexanoate or (lS,l'R)-l-(3',3'-dimethyl-1 'cyclohexyl)ethyl cis-3,4-epoxyhexanoate.
4. A perfuming composition comprising:
i) at least 1 to 20% by weight of a compound of formula (I) as defined in anyone of
claims 1 to 3; ii) at least one ingredient selected from the group consisting of a perfumery carrier and a
perfumery base of the kind such as hereinbefore described; and iii) optionally at least one perfumery adjuvant.
5. The compound as claimed in claims 1 to 3 and the perfuming composition as claimed
in claim 4 as and when used in the preparation of a perfumed article such as a solid or liquid
detergent, a fabric softener, a perfume, a cologne or after shave lotion, a perfumed soap, a
shower bath salt, mousse, oil or gel, a hygiene product or hair care product, shampoo, a body-
care product, a deodorant, or antiperspirant, an air freshener, cosmetic preparation, a
refresher, an ironing water, papers, wipes or bleaches.
6. A compound of formula I as defined in claim 1 substantially as hereinbefore described with reference to the foregoing examples.
