An easy procedure to obtain extracts enriched in trixagol monomalonylesther (1) from aerial parts of the plant Belladia trixago chemotype Trix was developed. Preparation of (+)-dihydro-gamma-ionone (4) was carried out directly from the extracts with good yields by selective oxidation. Other interesting odorant products as alpha-ambrinol (5), ambraldehyde (6) and the tricyclic compound 7 were synthesized very efficiently using (4) as intermediate.
