Cananga odorata - China
Ylang-ylang is a tree native to south-east Asia, but has spread to many tropical regions throughout the world. The tree is cultivated for its yellow flowers with their strong, smooth and flowery fragrance. The flowers are distilled to produce ylang-ylang essential oil which is available in various qualities (Extra, I, II, III and complete).
Ylang-ylang essential oil is highly prized in perfumery for its unique olfactory qualities.
Our exquisite Ylang Ylang #1 essential oil from China, steam distilled from the flowers of the tropical tree, smells intensely sweet and floral with a warm sensual undertone.
