1-Methyl-4-(4-methyl-3-pentenyl)cyclohex-3-ene-1-carbaldehyde and 1-methyl-4-(4-methylpentyl)cyclohex-3-ene-1-carbaldehyde are two chemically and olfactively related cyclic aldehydes. 1-Methyl-4-(4-methyl-3-pentenyl)cyclohex-3-ene-1-carbaldehyde (Precyclemone B)is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with an aldehydic, fresh, powerful marine, floral odor. Reminiscent of lily of the valley leaves, it is a very intensive and substantive material, with incense and sea breeze nuances.
