Perfume notes from Steffen Aratanders Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural origin-

Eucalyptus staigeriana-"The particular odor of this oil makes it immediately interesting for use in fresh-rosy type of soap perfume, detergent fragrances, etcBut its stability in soap is not particularly good.."

Lemon Tea Tree-"The power and diffusiveness or the oil is simply striking. It is an excellent base for detergents or soap-flake perfumes of the citronella or lemongrass-lemon type. In minute quantities, it will impart a sweet freshness to colognes, fougeres, lavenders for saop, air refreshners etc"

May Chang eo-"For use in perfumes, litsea cubeba oil could replace lemongrass to a certain degree, but the Chinese oil would probably find better use in artificial verbena bases, colognes, household sprays, air refreshners..."

Verbena, Lemon eo-"Verbena oil found some use in the "old-fashioned citrus colognes where it offered a delightful freshness and clean top note, superior to the effects that could be obtained with lemon oil 30-40 years ago. A special "Eau de Verveine" is still known and fairly popular in France and Central Europe, South America, etc. For this purpose the verbena oil was blended with citrus oils, neroli oil, palmarosa oil, heliotropine, iononees, nitromusks, aldehydes, spice oils, olibanum, tolu or elemi resinoid..."

Lemon, Spanish eo-"used in colognes, chypres, after shave lotion perfumes, etc"
