Does Levulinic Acid have a noticeable aroma?

What has been your experience using Levulinic Acid as part of a preservation system in O/W emulsion products?

Any comments or discussion about Levulinic Acid's aroma or lack thereof as well as its bacteriocidal efficacy as part of an O/W emulsion's preservation system would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
