Ylang Ylang Absolute

Adam Michael has this to say “This ylang ylang absolute is produced by solvent extracting the flowers and in my opinion is the truest representation of the flowers in their natural state – albeit I have never experienced a co2 offering so far. Translucent green to dark green colour subject to volume/weight and of a pourable viscosity. Ylang ylang absolute is a full bodied and intense floral experience, a perfume in its own right, very sweet, smooth, rich, indulgent with fruity aspects and spiced touches throughout. This aromatic experience is comparable to smelling our extra grade with the added bonus of additional depth and tenacity, going straight to the heart of the floral note without the lighter airy notes found in the distilled oils of which some interpret as being of a pissy nature. This is truly exquisite material and a must for anyone involved in the world of natural perfumery.”

Arctander has this to say “The concrete yields a very high amount of absolute (75% to 82%), and the resulting absolute is a pale yellow to straw yellow, oily liquid of intensely sweet-floral, very diffusive odor. 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. It is a typical balsamic floral note, and it is distinguished from the odor of the oil (“extra”) by its lightness and uniformity.

Ylang-Ylang Absolute is one of the finest floral materials in high-class muguet perfumes (type “Diorissimo” , etc.), where its power and (yet) very delicate undertone blend excellently with jasmin and rose materials, hydroxycitronellal, dimethylbenzyl carbinyl acetate, dimethyl phenylethyl carbinol, phenylethyl isobutyrate, nerolidol, Peru balsam oil, indole, isoeugenol, rhodinol, sandalwood oil, cassie and mimosa, vertenex HC, alpha isomethyl ionone, etc. It is used in carnation, lilac, lily, narcissus, gardenia, violet, hyacinth, honeysuckle, peony, freesia, sweet pea, and countless other floral base. Furthermore in Oriental perfumes with rose, sandalwood, opopanax, spice oils, nonanolide, undecanolide, anthocephalus cadamba, costus, etc.”
