Ylang Ylang Extra

Adam Michael has this to say “The top notes of this ylang ylang extra are watery exotic and heady floral, finishing with delicate fruit nuances. The heart and base notes are again warm heady floral with a voluptuous creamy lactonic character and gentle pink pepper spice notes.

The production process of ylang ylang is quite complex and fascinating, so much so I have written an article which you can read here.”

Arctander has this to say “Ylang-Ylang Extra is used mainly in high-class perfumes of the floral and heavy-Oriental type, but mere traces of the oil can do wonders in medium-priced floral bases. There is hardly any floral type, where ylang-ylang “extra” would not fit in. The oil blends excellently with bois de rose, vetiver, amyl salicylate, opopanax, bergamot, hydroxycitronellal, mimosa, cassie, methylionones, cinnamic alcohol and esters, benzoates, para cresyl esters (ethers), nerolidol, Peru balsam oil, vertenex HC, etc. and with gardenia bases, stephanotis bases, tuberose bases, etc.”
