Floral, sweet, jasmine-scented, spicy, ethereal.

Source

The Ylang ylang tree is native to the Philippines and is grown on the Comores Islands and Madagascar.

Extraction Method

Ylang ylang essence is obtained throguh steam distillation of the fresh flowers. Trees are pruned on a regular basis between approximately 6 and 9 feet so that the flowers are easier to gather. A mature tree can yield 20 to 30 kg (about 45 to 70 lbs) of flowers per season. 350 to 400 kg (about 770 to 880 lb) of flowers make 1 kg (about 2 lb) of essence. Flowers are picked early morning once a week.

Use

Four different qualities are obtained from continuous distillation: extra, first, second and third. Only the extra and first quality categories are used in fine perfumery. Ylang ylang blends well with the various floral notes. It brings a touch of elegance, volume and originality. Second quality ylang ylang is used in cosmetics and third quality ylang ylang in soaps.

Medicinal properties

Ylang ylang helps dispel doubt and anxiety and boosts self-confidence.
