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.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

Absolutely beautiful. Has the vanilla-y custard note that is almost always missing in many extras that tend to lean more fruity. Rich, potent, creamy, and delicious -what true ylang should smell like.
This ylang-ylang extra is such an incredible oil. Probably the most intense floral I have ever owned. It smells like a very rich, heavy ylang-ylang mixed with banana cream. When blending sometimes 1 part is too much. I usually have to dilute it to. 5 or .25. I’ve had a five ml bottle for about 4-5 years and it still smells amazing.
