A small error: it's not stearyl acetate but styrallyl acetate - the gardenia note from Crêpe de Chine (and Ma Griffe, and so on)! :) See a picture of its chirality on Leffingwell.
In the picture there is a bottle of the old/disparu russian fragrance - Coffret Noir.
Scented Salamander talks about this article (and its errors) and also about Houbigant Idéal - the famous perfume of 1900's.
