Dihydroactinidiolide is a volatile terpene with chemical formula C11H16O2 and CAS number 15356-74-8. It has a sweet, tea-like odor and is used as a fragrance. Dihydroactinidiolide occurs naturally in black tea, fenugreek, fire ants, mangos, silver vine, and tobacco.

As with nepetalactone, found in catnip, dihydroactinidiolide is a cat attractant. Cultivators of silver vine (which contains another such chemical, actinidine) sometimes find their plants destroyed by enthusiastic cats.
