    This is the famed ylang-ylang extra "superior" oil from Comoros (organic edition), the brightest ylang-ylang quality there is. This is the oil that Ernest Beaux demanded for Chanel No 5 because nothing else had top notes penetrating enough to handle the aldehyde overload. Most vendors settle for Madagascan processed extracts as they are less costly, but the Comoros oils remain to this day the peak of cananga perfection.

    From the ethereal fruity top notes to the intensely sweet and lasting dry down, you will be absolutely converted to this quality of ylang ylang. This is the stuff of legends.

    In ylang-ylang production terms, the "superior" oil is taken during the first few minutes of steam distilled extraction, giving the truest and most beautiful representation of the flower in nature. Following that is the more heart balanced “extra” grade (organic) which can comprise up to 40 or 50% of the total remaining oil. The more functional remnants are sold as grade I ,grade II and grade III or taken on the whole as “complete” oil. 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 low-cost all-purpose 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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 0.73%
    IFRA 49: 0.73%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    I love ylang ylang and have the extra grade extraction from other suppliers to compare. Fraterworks superior oil is a diva. It has an edge to it that really holds up to aldehydes. Used in the Rallet no.1 and Forbidden Secret demo formulas it is divine. However, it lacks that creamy warmth that my less refined ylang ylang extras have. I can see how if you wanted a more background note to harmonize a composition you might want to choose a lesser grade.

    Finally, a great Ylang Ylang

    This is the best Ylang Ylang of any grade Generally, I hate Ylang Ylangs (except Lisylang) but this one is even better. The only problem is Jamie didn't get the organic version!
