Cashmeran as a fragrance note

Cashmeran is a trade name by IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances). The chemical name for Cashmeran is 1,1,2,3,3-pentamethyl-2,5,6,7-tetrahydroinden-4-one.

Right… That is quite a mouthful and the chemical name may not immediately appeal to the imagination, the trade name all the more. Another name that is often used for this ingredient is ‘blonde wood’.
