Perfumer's Notes

Ylang ylang (pronounced "ilang-ilang") is called “a poor man’s jasmine” because of its similar scent and lower cost. But ylang ylang is a complex and versatile floral that is great in its own right. The unusual and multifaceted aroma adds a rich floralcy with bright, ethereal top notes. Ylang ylang has a fruity, fresh-wintergreen top, a sweet-floral heart, and a warm, skin-like dry down that can soften and contrast more aggressive base ingredients.
