Hexamethylindanopyran (also know as Galaxolide) is a synthetic fragrance with a clean sweet musky floral woody odor used in fragrances. It is one of the musk components that perfume and cologne manufacturers use to add a musk odor to their products. Galaxolide was first synthesized in 1965, and used in the late 1960s in some fabric softeners and detergents.[1] High concentrations were also incorporated in fine fragrances.

How safe is it?
