  Redistilled, nitrobenzene has been used as an inexpensive perfume for soaps commercially sold as oil of mirbane and hence this name.

  It is a yellowish oily liquid of 1.209 spec, gr., crystallizes in needles at 3° C. (37.4° F.), and boils at 205° C. (401° F.) It has a strong odor, resembling that of oil of bitter almond - hence incorrectly named artificial oil of bitter almond.It is used in perfumery and soap manufacturing as a substitute for the more expensive oil of bitter almond.
