    While some fragrances such as Chanel's original No 5 required a special penetrating variety of ylang-ylang (our “Extra Superior” product), the finest and most balanced all round ylang-ylang is this organically certified “Extra” quality distilled in Comoros on the same day as harvesting. This oil has the perfect balance of sweet top notes with a rich creamy floral heart and luscious dry down. If you only have one ylang-ylang, this is the one to have.

    In ylang-ylang production terms, the “superior” oil is taken during the first few minutes of steam distilled extraction, giving the fruitiest and most ethereal top notes. Following that is this more balanced (and most beautiful representation of the flower in nature) “extra” grade which can comprise up to 40 or 50% of the total remaining oil. The functional remnants are sold as grade I, grade II and grade III or taken on the whole as “complete” oil. Of those remnants, only complete and grade III are of value to modern perfumers with grade III being a cheap oil for soaps and “complete oil” being useful as a general mid-range ylang ylang which blends very well with most other florals.

    If you are looking for a synthetic replacer for ylang-ylang oil that can be used at much higher quantities, you may prefer our wonderfully realistic Ylang Impérial base.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.
