So, what is benzyl acetate?

Benzyl acetate is an organic compound with a sweet, floral aroma commonly found in fruits and flowers. It is a colorless liquid that is highly volatile and flammable, often used as a flavoring agent in food and beverages, as well as a fragrance component in perfumes and soaps. Benzyl acetate is derived from benzyl alcohol and acetic acid, and its pleasant scent makes it a popular choice for aromatherapy and natural personal care products. However, it is important to note that high concentrations of benzyl acetate can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions in some individuals.
