Analogues of jasmine lactone and cis-jasmone, bearing cyclopropane rings instead of double bonds, were synthesized and their odour characteristics were examined. Modification of the cyclopentenone ring of cis-jasmone reduced both the quality and the intensity of the original odour. Cyclopropanation of the pentenyl side chains did not increase the odour intensity, but it gave a fruity characteristic to the original odours of cis-jasmone and jasmine lactone.
