Our organically crafted Ylang Ylang Absolute is extracted from the vivid yellow blooms of the tall Cananga odorata var. genuina tree growing wild in the forests of Madagascar. Ylang Ylang Absolute is a pale yellow to straw yellow, oily liquid of intensely sweet, rich floral, very diffusive aroma. With an unusual power in its top note, the fragrance fades out very slowly and most elegantly in a long-lasting, floral-spicy and very sweet note, truly reminiscent of the fragrance of the flower.


Ylang Ylang is highly revered for wide array health benefits owing to its antidepressant, anti-seborrheic, antiseptic, nervine, and sedative properties. As a relaxing aromatic, it can also be used to encourage mental quiet and support a conscious move to let go of frustration or tension. Intensely sweet, this exotic aphrodisiac absolute has delicious, languid tones that can be used to encourage an intimate atmosphere for heightened sexuality.

Ylang Ylang Absolute is also helpful in supporting healthy, clear skin and may help heal older scars, as it is also skin rejuvenating. It also makes a blissful addition to moisturizing skin care blends, relaxing massage blends, or bath salt blends.

Apart from its bountiful health benefits and beautiful calming scents, Ylang Ylang is used to add sensuality and depth to perfume blends. Ylang Ylang also has the distinction of being the main contributor to the scent of the world-famous perfume, Chanel No. 5. Ylang Ylang Absolute is widely appreciated for its warm, exotic, round and feminine notes.
