What is Linalool?

Linalool is a noncyclic monoterpenoid that is commonly extracted from lavender, basil, cinnamon, birch, coriander and cannabis. It is a pale-yellow liquid with a delicate, floral aroma like that of bergamot oil and French lavender.

What Does Linalool Smell and Taste Like?

Chances are high you’ve smelled linalool before, especially if you like lavender. But it’s also commonly found in plants and spices such as jasmine, rosewood, basil, and thyme. As for its taste, it depends on who you ask. Too much linalool-rich lavender and your tastebuds will be covered in a bitter, soapy flavor that’s more reminiscent of perfume than it is of food.
