Description: BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates to compounds having the generic structure: ##STR4## wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2 and R.sub.3 are the same or different and each represents hydrogen or C1-C3 lower alkyl, processes for preparing same and organoleptic usesthereof in perfumes, colognes, perfumed articles such as anionic, cationic and non-ionic detergents and dryer-added fabric softeners and in smoking tobaccos and smoking tobacco articles which comprise a wrapper encasing a smoking tobacco body andimpinging thereupon a smoking tobacco article filter.

There has been considerable work performed relating to substances which can be used to impart (modify, augment or enhance) flavors and fragrances to (or in) various consumable materials. These substances are used to diminish the use of naturalmaterials, some of which may be in short supply, and to provide more uniform properties in the finished product.

Low-keyed, oily, woody amber, leathery, warm spice, earthy, camphoraceous, patchouli-like, balsamic, green, cardamom-like, vetiver-like, sweet woody, amber and minty aromas are desirable in several types of perfume compositions, perfumed articlessuch as anionic, cationic and non-ionic detergents, cosmetic powders and dryer-added fabric softener articles, and colognes.

Sweet, floral, woody, spicy, leathery and amber aromas prior to smoking and sweet, natural tobacco-like tastes and aromas are desirable in several types of smoking tobaccos, smoking tobacco articles and in smoking tobacco flavoring compositions.

British Pat. No. 809,039 entitled "Method of Producing Derivatives of the 1,1-Dimethyloctahydronaphthalene Series" discloses the generic process: ##STR5## wherein R.sub.2, R.sub.3, and R.sub.4 are disclosed to be same or different hydrogen atomsor alkyl and R.sub.1 is disclosed to be hydroxy, alkyl or alkoxy. The British patent discloses this process to be useful for producing products "resembling the well known class of violet perfumes". Indeed, Example 5 of the British patent alleges thatthe compound 1,1,6,6-Tetramethyl-7-ketomethyl-Octalin produced by (1) reacting myrcene and mesityl oxide thermally followed by (2) subsequent cyclization, has a pleasant "woody ambergris smell". However, a repetition of the teachings of this Britishpatent gives rise to the following results:

PERFUME PROPERTIES:

STRUCTURE OF COMPOUND ##STR8##

PERFUME PROPERTIES:

Green, buttery, woody

U.S. Pat. No. 2,933,506, issued on Apr. 19, 1960, discloses the production of perfume compounds according to the reaction sequence: ##STR9##

In said formula R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.3, and R.sub.4 represent hydrogen or alkyl, especially a lower alkyl radical, aryl, aralkyl, cycloalkyl, or heterocyclic residues. R.sub.1 in said formula can also be the hydroxyl group or an ether group. The ether group may form an ester group or a lactone group with the --CO-- group.

The new compounds are obtained by first subjecting myrcene of Formula I to the diene synthesis with a dienophilic compound of Formula II. The resulting adduct of Formula III is then subjected to ring closure reaction to form the corresponding1,1-dimethyl octaline compounds of Formula IV.

Thus, for example, the 1,1-dimethyl-7-methylal octaline can be produced as follows:

576 g. (3 mols) of the aldehyde obtained from myrcene and acrolein, said aldehyde corresponding to Formula III wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.3, and R.sub.4 are hydrogen, are dissolved in 600 cc. of ether. 279 g. (3 mols) of aniline dissolvedin 500 cc. of ether are added to said solution portion by portion at room temperature in a separatory funnel while shaking the mixture repeatedly.

After allowing the mixture to stand at room temperature for about 20 hours, the theoretical amount of water has split off. The resulting solution is separated from the water formed on reaction and is directly used for cyclization.

The ethereal solution of the Schiff's base is added drop by drop to 4.1 of 62% sulfuric acid at -15.degree. C. within about 2 hours while stirring vigorously. Care must be taken that the temperature does not substantially exceed 0.degree. C.After the solution has been added to the sulfuric acid, stirring of the reaction mixture is continued at -5.degree. C. for about one hour. The reaction mixture is then treated with steam until all the solvent has been distilled off. The distillationrequires about 1/2 hour. The reaction mixture has now separated into two layers. It is poured on ice and is exhaustively extracted with benzene. The benzene solution of the bicyclic aldehyde is washed with water until the wash water is substantiallyneutral. Thereafter, the solvent is distilled off under atmospheric pressure and the residue is subjected to fractional distillation in a vacuum.

In this manner 438 g. of 1,1-dimethyl-7-methylal octaline are obtained. The yield is about 76% of the theoretical yield. The reaction product consists of 2/3 of the .beta.-compound with the double bond in 9,10-position and to 1/3 of asubstantially uniform isomer, the double bond of which is either in .alpha.-, or in .gamma.-, or in .delta.-position.

Characteristic properties of the mixture of isomers:

Boiling point: 85.degree.-86.degree. C./0.5 mm.;

Density d.sub.4.sup.20 : 0.9877;

Index of refraction n.sub.D.sup.20 : 1.5031;

Aldehyde content: 98-100%.

By fractional crystallization of the semicarbazones of the reaction mixture, the isomers can be separated from each other. For this purpose 70 g. of the bicyclic aldehyde mixture are mixed with a solution of 70 g. of semicarbazide hydrochlorideand 70 g. of sodium acetate in 140 cc. of water. Methanol is added until complete solution is achieved. The reaction mixture is allowed to stand overnight at room temperature. 95.5 g. of an amorphous semicarbazone precipitates. It has an unsharppoint of decomposition at 139.degree.-141.degree. C. On repeated recrystallization from 90% methanol, 53.5 g. of white crystals melting at 148.degree. C. with decomposition are obtained.

In order to produce therefrom pure 1,1-dimethyl-7-methylal-.DELTA..sub.9,10 -octaline, the semicarbazone was split up by heating with 50 g. of oxalic acid in 200 cc. of water. The aldehyde set free thereby is separated from the reactionsolution by vacuum steam distillation. The steam distillate is subjected to fractional distillation in a vacuum. In this manner 30 g. of a very pure aldehyde are obtained. This aldehyde has a pleasant refreshing and sandalwood-like ionone odor.

Characteristic properties of 1,1-dimethyl-7-methylal-.DELTA..sub.9,10 -octaline:

Boiling point: 85.degree. C./0.5 mm.;

Density d.sub.4.sup.20 : 0.9914;

Index of refraction n.sub.D.sup.20 : 1.5054;

Aldehyde content: 100%.

After standing for several days at -25.degree. C. there precipitates from the mother liquor of the semicarbazone reaction mixture a second compound which, on repeated recrystallization from methanol, has a melting point of 134.degree. C. 14.5g. of this semicarbazone are obtained. The aldehyde is set free therefrom by means of oxalic acid in the same manner as described hereinabove for the .beta.-aldehyde.

The position of the double bond in said aldehyde could not yet be ascertained with certainty. The double bond is either in .alpha.-, .gamma.-, or .delta.-position. The compound also has a refreshing ionone aroma, however, without anyaccompanying sandalwood-like nuance.

Characteristic properties of this isomeric aldehyde:

Boiling point: 85.degree.-86.degree. C./0.5 mm.,

Density d.sub.4.sup.20 : 0.9890;

Index of refraction n.sub.D.sup.20 : 1.5044;

Aldehyde content: 100%.

Another example indicating preparation of 1,1-dimethyl-7-methylal octaline in U.S. Pat. No. 2,933,506 is as follows:

1 mol. of the aldehyde in the form of its Schiff's base as prepared and used in Example 1 is dissolved in an equal amount of benzene. The benzene solution is added drop by drop to 700 cc. of 85% phosphoric acid at 0.degree. C. while stirringvigorously. Thereafter, stirring of the reaction mixture is continued at 60.degree. C. for 1 hour. Thereby not only cyclization is compicted but the azomethine group is quantitatively split up. The resulting bicyclic aldehyde is then poured on ice,extracted by means of benzene, and the benzene layer is washed with water until neutral. After distilling off the solvent, 190 g. of residue of an aldehyde content of 82% are obtained. The crude bicyclic aldehyde is subjected to fractional distillationby means of a small fractionating column. In this manner 135 g. of 1,1-dimethyl-7-methylal octaline are obtained. The yield is about 70% of the theoretical yield. The aldehyde consists mainly of an isomer, the double bond of which is either in.alpha., or in .gamma.-, or in .delta.-position.

Characteristic properties:

Boiling point: 96.degree. C./0.7 mm.;

Density d.sub.4.sup.20 : 0.9884;

Index of refraction n.sub.D.sup.20 : 1.5042;

Aldehyde content: 98.degree.-100%.

Additional reaction of the resulting compounds with acid and heating gives rise to the compounds of our invention having the generic structure: ##STR10## wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2 and R.sub.3 are the same or different and each represents hydrogenor C1-C3 lower alkyl.

However, there is no inference in any of the pertinent prior art that the tricyclic ketone compounds of our invention can be produced or ever have been produced.

THE INVENTION

It has now been discovered that novel smoking tobacco and smoking tobacco flavoring compositions having sweet, floral, woody, spicy, leathery and/or amber aroma and taste nuances prior to smoking and sweet natural tobacco tastes and aromas onsmoking both in the main stream and the side stream, as well as novel perfume compositions, colognes and perfumed articles (e.g., solid or liquid anionic, cationic and non-ionic detergent compositions, as well as dryer-added fabric softener articles, aswell as cosmetic powders) having intense and pleasant oily, woody amber, leathery, warm spice, earthy camphoraceous, patchouli-like, balsamic, green, cardamom-like, vetiver-like, sweet woody, amber and minty aromas may be provided by the utilization ofone or more tricyclic ketone derivatives having the generic structure: ##STR24## wherein each of R.sub.1, R.sub.2 and R.sub.3 are the same or different and each represents hydrogen or C1-C3 lower alkyl, such as methyl, ethyl, n-propyl and i-propyl.

The novel tricyclic ketones of our invention useful as indicated supra, may be produced preferably by one of the following processes:

(1) First reacting myrcene having the structure: ##STR25## with an alpha, beta unsaturated aldehyde having the generic structure: ##STR26## wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2 and R.sub.3 are the same or different hydrogen or lower alkyl in the presence ofa Lewis acid catalyst such as aluminum trichloride, boron trifluoride, stannic fluoride, zinc fluoride zinc bromide, ethyl aluminum dichloride or diethyl aluminum monochloride or, in the absence of catalysts under conditions of higher temperatures,50.degree.-150.degree. C., to produce an unsaturated aldehyde or a mixture of unsaturated aldehydes having the generic structure: ##STR27## Depending upon the catalyst used, the proportion of one isomer to the other isomer of resulting aldehyde willvary.

The aldehydes having the generic structures: ##STR28## are either separated by standard means of physical separation, e.g., fractional distillation or industrial column chromatography, or they are permitted to remain as a mixture. Thesealdehydes are then reacted in the presence of acid, such as phosphoric acid or sulfuric acid, in order to produce cyclic aldehydes having the generic structure: ##STR29## wherein one of the dashed lines represents a carbon-carbon double bond and each ofthe other dashed lines represents carbon-carbon single bonds, and wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2 and R.sub.3 are the same or different hydrogen or C1-C3 lower alkyl.

When the aldehyde having the structure: ##STR30## is reacted alone, the resulting aldehyde has the generic structure: ##STR31## and is, of course, a mixture of aldehydes. Insofar as our invention is concerned, the only useful aldehyde to bereacted for producing compounds having the generic structure: ##STR32## is the aldehyde having the structure: ##STR33## This aldehyde will form the mixture of aldehydes having the structure: ##STR34## which in turn is reacted under acid conditions,(either Lewis acid or mineral acid) to form the tricyclic ketone having the structure: ##STR35## according to the mechanism: ##STR36##

In the alternative, the aldehyde having the structure: ##STR37## may first be reacted with an amine R'NH.sub.2 to form an imine having the generic structure: ##STR38## which in turn is cyclized in the presence of mineral acid or Lewis acid toform the mixtures of compounds having the structures: ##STR39## wherein R' is lower alkyl and R.sub.1, R.sub.2 and R.sub.3 are the same or different hydrogen or lower alkyl and one of the dashed lines is a carbon-carbon double bond and each of the otherdashed lines represents carbon-carbon single bonds.

The resulting mixture of aldehydes having the structure: ##STR40## but not the mixture of aldehydes having the structure: ##STR41## or the resulting imine having the structure: ##STR42## is thus reacted to form the novel compounds of ourinvention having the structure: ##STR43## in the presence of acid.

The condition for the Diels-Alder reaction between myrcene, having the structure: ##STR44## and the alpha, beta unsaturated aldehyde, having the structure: ##STR45## as well as the conditions for the reaction of the compounds having thestructures: ##STR46## to form the cyclic compounds having the structures: ##STR47## are set forth in the literature as follows:

1. U.S. Pat. No. 3,911,018 issued on Oct. 7, 1975, at Columns 7, 8 and 9 thereof.

2. U.S. Pat. No. 2,933,506 issued on Apr. 19, 1960, at Examples 1, 2 and 3 at Columns 6, 7 and 8 thereof.

In the reaction to form the tricyclic ketone having the structure: ##STR48## from the aldehyde having the structure: ##STR49## the mineral acids which can be used are hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, or paratoluene sulfonicacid. An inert solvent is used in this reaction, xylene, toluene, benzene or diethylbenzene, or a chlorocarbon such as chloroform (CHCl.sub.3) or methylene chloride (CH.sub.2 Cl.sub.2).

The mole ratio of aldehyde having the structure: ##STR50## may vary from 1:10 up to 10:1 with a range of mole ratios of from about 1:2 up to about 1:0.5 being preferred.

The temperature of reaction may vary from 25.degree. C. up to 100.degree. C. with a temperature range from about 60.degree. C. up to about 80.degree. C. being preferred.

In place of the mineral acid being used, a Lewis acid may be used, such as aluminum chloride, stannic chloride, titanium tetrachloride, boron trifluoride, or boron trifluoride etherate, ethyl aluminum chloride, ethyl aluminum dichloride, zincbromide or zinc chloride. The temperature of reaction may vary from 25.degree. C. up to 100.degree. C. with a temperature of from 25.degree. C. to 45.degree. C. being preferred. The mole ratio of aldehyde having the structure: ##STR51## may varyfrom 1:1 up to 1:2 with an inert solvent being used which is either toluene, benzene, xylene, diethylbenzene, chloroform or methylene chloride.

The time of reaction for forming of the compounds represented by the generic structure: ##STR52## using the compounds represented by the generic structure: ##STR53## may vary from about 1 hour up to about 12 hours when operating at refluxtemperatures, such as 110.degree.-120.degree. C., using a toluene solvent. Preferred is a reaction time of between 5 and 12 hours.

It is noteworthy that whereas the genus of compounds having the structure: ##STR54## will react to form the genus of compounds having the structure: ##STR55## the genus of compounds having the structure: ##STR56## will not so react when treatedwith either Lewis acid or mineral acid under high temperature conditions. This gives rise to the advantage of separating out the isomeric components of compounds having the structures: or compounds having the structures: ##STR57##

Examples of the tricyclic ketone compounds having the generic structure: ##STR58## produced according to the processes of our invention and their organoleptic properties are set forth in the following table:

One or more of the tricyclic ketones of our invention and one or more auxiliary perfume ingredients including, e.g., alcohols, aldehydes, ketones other than the tricyclic ketones of our invention, terpenic hydrocarbons, nitriles, esters,lactones, natural essential oils and synthetic essential oils, may be admixed so that the combined odors of the individual components produce a pleasant and desired fragrance, particularly in the woody, ambery, leathery, patchouli-like and vetiverfragrances. Such perfume compositions usually contain (a) the main note or the "bouquet" or foundation stone of the composition; (b) modifiers which round off and accompany the main note; (c) fixatives which include odorous substances which lead aparticular note to the pefume throughout all stages of evaporation and substances which retard evaporation; and (d) topnotes which are usually low boiling fresh smelling materials.

In perfume compositions, it is the individual components which contribute to their particular olfactory characteristics, however the over-all sensory effect of the perfume composition will be at least the sum total of the effects of each of theingredients. Thus, one or more tricyclic ketone derivative(s) of our invention can be used to alter, modify or enhance the aroma characteristics of a perfume composition, for example, by utilizing or moderating the olfactory reaction contributed byanother ingredient in the composition.

The amount of tricyclic ketone derivative(s) of our invention which will be effective in perfume compositions as well as in perfumed articles and colognes depends on many factors, including the other ingredients, their amounts and the effectswhich are desired. It has been found that perfume compositions containing as little as 0.01% of tricyclic ketone derivative(s) or even less (e.g., 0.005%) can be used to impart a vetiver aroma with sweet woody, citrusy, musky, woody/peppery,woody/leathery, hay and green nuances to soaps, cosmetics, detergents, powders and colognes. The amount employed can range up to 70% of the fragrance components will depend on considertions of cost, nature of the end product, the effect desired on thefinished product and the particular fragrance sought.

The tricyclic ketone derivative(s) of our invention are useful [taken along or together with other ingredients in perfume compositions] as (an) olfactory component(s) in detergents and soaps, space odorants and deodorants, perfumes, colognes,toilet water, bath preparations, such as lacquers, brilliantines, pomades and shampoos; cosmetic preparations, such as creams, deodorants, hand lotions and sun screens; powders, such as talcs, dusting powders, face powders and the like. When used as(an) olfactory component(s) as little as 1% of tricyclic ketone derivative(s) will suffice to impart intense oily, woody amber, leathery, warm spice, earthy camphoraceous, patchouli-like, balsamic, green, cardamom-like, vetiver-like, sweet woody, amberyand minty aromas to various formulations such as vetiver formulations. Although, generally, no more than 60% of the tricyclic ketone derivative(s), based on the ultimate end product, is required in the perfume composition, amounts of tricyclic ketonederivative(s) of up to 95% may be used in such perfume composition.

When used in perfumed articles such as anionic, cationic and non-ionic detergents, or dryer-added fabric softener articles, cosmetic powders or deodorant compositions, from 0.1% up to 5.0% by weight of the tricyclic ketone based on the over-allperfumed article weight may be used in the perfumed articles to impart intense oily, woody amber, leathery, warm spice, earthy camphoraceous, patchouli-like, balsam-like, green, cardamom-like, vetiver-like, sweet woody, amber and minty aromas.

In addition, the perfume composition or fragrance composition of our invention can contain a vehicle, or carrier for the tricyclic ketone derivative(s). The vehicle can be a liquid such as a non-toxic alcohol, a non-toxic glycol, or the like. The carrier can also be an absorbent solid, such as a gum (e.g., gum arabic) or components for encapsulating the composition (such as gelatin).

An additional aspect of our invention provides an organoleptically improved smoking tobacco product and additives therefor, as well as methods of making the same which overcome problems heretofore encountered in which specific sweet, floral,woody, spicy, leathery and amber flavor characteristics of natural smoking tobacco (prior to and on smoking both the mainstream and the sidestream) as well as cooling effects, are created, enhanced, modified or augmented and may be readily controlled andmaintained at the desired uniform level regardless of variations in the tobacco components of the blend.

In carrying out this aspect of our invention, we add to smoking tobacco compositions or a suitable substitute therefor (e.g., dried lettuce leaves), or we add to the wrapper used in producing smoking tobacco articles which surround a cylindricalformed body of smoking tobacco, or we add to the filter which is in intimate contact with both the wrapper and the cylindrical shaped body of tobacco, an aroma and flavor additive containing as an active ingredient one or more of the tricyclic ketones ofour invention.

In addition to the tricyclic ketone(s) of our invention other flavoring and aroma additives may be added to the smoking tobacco material or substitute therefor either separately or in mixture with the ketone(s) as follows:

An aroma and flavoring concentrate containing one or more tricyclic ketone derivative(s) of our invention and, if desired, one or more of the above indicated additional flavoring additives may be added to the smoking tobacco material, to thefilter or to the leaf or paper wrapper. The smoking tobacco material may be shredded, cured, cased and blended tobacco material or reconstituted tobacco material or tobacco substitutes (e.g., lettuce leaves) or mixtures thereof. The proportions offlavoring additives may be varied in accordance with taste but insofar as enhancement or the imparting of natural and/or sweet notes and/or cooling notes and/or floral, woody, spicy, leathery or amber notes, we have found that satisfactory results areobtained if the proportion by weight of the sum total of tricyclic ketone derivative(s) to smoking tobacco material is between 50 ppm and 1,500 ppm (0.015%-0.15%). We have further found that satisfactory results are obtained if the proportion by weightof the sum total of tricyclic ketone derivative(s) used to flavoring material is between 1,500 and 15,000 ppm (0.15%-1.5%).

Any convenient method for incorporating the tricyclic ketone derivative(s) into the tobacco product may be employed. Thus, the tricyclic ketone derivative(s) taken alone or along with other flavoring additives may be dissolved in a suitablesolvent such as ethanol, diethyl ether and/or volative organic solvents and the resulting solution may either be spread on the cured, cased and blended tobacco material or the tobacco material may be dipped into such solution. Under certaincircumstances, a solution of the tricyclic ketone derivative(s) taken alone or taken further together with other flavoring additives as set forth above, may be applied by means of a suitable applicator such as a brush or roller on the paper or leafwrapper for the smoking product, or it may be applied to the filter by either spraying, or dipping, or coating.

Furthermore, it will be apparent that only a portion of the tobacco or substitute therefor need be treated and the thus treated tobacco may be blended with other tobaccos before the ultimate tobacco product is formed. In such cases, the tobaccotreated may have the tricyclic ketone derivative(s) in excess of the amounts or concentrations above indicated so that when blended with other tobaccos, the final product will have the percentage within the indicated range.

In accordance with one specific example of our invention, an aged, cured and shredded domestic burley tobacco is sprayed with a 20% ethyl alcohol solution of hexahydro-2,5,5-trimethyl-2H-2,4-a-methanonaphthalene-1(5H)-one having the structure:##STR63## in an amount to provide a tobacco composition containing 800 ppm by weight of hexahydro-2,5,5-trimethyl-2H-2,4-a-methanonaphthalene-1(5H)-one on a dry basis. Thereafter, the alcohol is removed by evaporation and the tobacco is manufacturedinto cigarettes by the usual techniques. The cigarette when treated as indicated has a desired and pleasant aroma which is detectable in the main and sidestreams when the cigarette is smoked. The aroma is described as being sweeter, more aromatic, moretobacco-like and having sweet, woody, amber notes.

While our invention is particularly useful in the manufacture of smoking tobacco, such as cigarette tobacco, cigar tobacco and pipe tobacco, other tobacco products, formed from sheeted tobacco dust or fines may also be used. Likewise, thetricyclic ketone derivative(s) of our invention can be incorporated with materials such as filter tip materials (e.g., cellulose acetate filters wherein sweet, woody, piney and/or cooling effects are desired), seam paste, packaging materials and the likewhich are used along with tobacco to form a product adapted for smoking. Furthermore, the tricyclic ketone derivative(s) can be added to certain tobacco substitutes of natural or synthetic origin (e.g., dried lettuce leaves) and, accordingly, by theterm "tobacco" as used throughout this specification is meant any composition intended for human consumption by smoking or otherwise, whether composed of tobacco plant parts or substitute materials or both.

It will thus be apparent that the tricyclic ketone(s) of our invention can be utilized to alter, modify or enhance sensory properties, particularly organoleptic properties, such as flavor(s) and/or fragrance(s) of a wide variety of consumablematerials, such as smoking tobacco, perfumed articles and perfumed compositions in colognes.

The following examples serve to illustrate processes for specifically producing the tricyclic ketone(s) of our invention and processes for utilizing said tricyclic ketone(s) for their organoleptic properties.

All parts and percentages given herein are by weight unless otherwise specified.

EXAMPLE XVII

A tobacco blend is prepared as follows:

______________________________________ Ingredient Parts by Weight ______________________________________ Bright 40.1 Burley 24.9 Maryland 1.1 Turkish 11.6 Stem (flue-cured) 14.2 Glycerine 2.8 Water 5.3 ______________________________________

The following flavor formulation is prepared:

______________________________________ Ingredient Parts by Weight ______________________________________ Ethyl Butyrate 0.05 Ethyl Valerate 0.05 Maltol 2.00 Cocoa Extract 26.00 Coffee Extract 10.00 95% Ethanol (aqueous) 20.00 Water 41.90 ______________________________________

The above-mentioned tobacco blend is divided into four portions: Portion A; Portion B; Portion C; and Portion D. Portion C and D are each combined separately with the above-mentioned tobacco flavor formulation, at the rate of 0.2%. Each ofPortions A, B, C and D are then manufactured into cigarettes. The cigarettes containing tobacco Portions A and C are left as is. To the cigarettes manufactured from tobacco Portions B and D is added at the rates of 200 and 2000 ppmhexahydro-2,5,5-trimethyl-2H-2,4-a-methanonaphthalene-1(5H)-one prepared according to Example VIII. The cigarettes are then evaluated by paired comparison and the results are as follows.

The aroma on smoking of cigarettes produced from tobacco Portions B and D is found to be more sweet, floral, woody, spicy and leathery-like with enhanced tobacco taste and tobacco aroma, than the aroma of those cigarettes produced from Portions Aand C.

In smoke flavor (main stream) the cigarettes produced from Portion D are found to be more aromatic and sweeter with a cooling effect.

In smoke flavor (side stream of room aroma) the cigarettes produced from Portion D are found to be sweet, aromatic, more woody and more spicy, i.e., having an oriental, balsamic character.

Thus, the product produced according to Example VIII modifies the side stream and the main stream smoke aromas at making it more pleasant and more natural tobacco-like.

All cigarettes are evaluated for smoke flavor with a 20 mm cellulose acetate filter.
