Ylang Ylang Essential Oil (Cananga Odorata) that we offer is of Extra Superior quality. It comes from the harvest of yellow flowers of Ylangui trees which grow naturally in the region of Anjouan in the Comoros. It is obtained in the first 50 minutes of distillation thanks to a still that runs entirely on solar energy. A technique that allows us to have an oil of exceptional quality while thinking of our planet.

Particularly appreciated in perfumery for its fragrance between jasmine and solar, floral and fruity, it will be perfect to embellish all your perfumed or cosmetic creations. But not only. Because the essential oil of Ylang Ylang is also a must in aromatherapy and olfactotherapy and its many and varied properties will help you to better control your small daily worries.



Probably one of the most generous floral notes of all. This rich ylang-ylang gets its olfactory singularity from the exceptional process used to harvest its precious oil. The freshness of the flower is preserved thanks to a mobile distillation carried out at the very moment of picking. These few minutes saved represent an immeasurable contribution for the perfumer because the top note thus delivered is infinitely more refined, complex and subtle. The introductory cocktail is at once floral, fruity, almondy, green and solar, in an intertwining that can only amaze.

The olfactory spectrum gradually focuses on the velvety and vanilla-like sweetness of a white flower, where Lily and Jasmine, Hyacinth and Tuberose meet. All at once, and moreover inimitable, irreducible … Finally, the whole is warmed, enveloping, while pointing to the background musky aphrodisiac and indomitable.
