Reminiscent of Jasmine in aroma, the so-called “Flower of Flowers” is sweet and exotically floral. Ylang-Ylang Extra Oil is the most exotic of the fractions, and adds a radiant sweetness to perfume blends. Tony Burfield, in Natural Aromatic Materials describes it as having a heady, sweet, radiant floral odor with spicy notes of clove in the background, and a rounded full-bodied dry down, with slightly spicy notes.
Of our Ylang-Ylang offerings, the Extra is definitely the perfumers choice.
