    valerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl acetate,
    ethyl amyl ketone, ethyl butyrate, ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate,
    ethyl heptylate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl
    nitrate, ethyl propionate, ethyl valerate, heliotropin,
    hydroxyphenyl-2-butanone (10 percent solution in alcohol), a-ionone,
    isobutyl anthranilate, isobutyl butyrate, lemon essential oil, maltol,
    4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methyl benzoate, methyl

    salicylate, mint essential oil, neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl

    i see a lot of methylated compounds, i don't personally know what most of this stuff is, should people be concerned ?
