Ylang Ylang has been called the 'poor man's jasmine'. which Arctander strongly resents!
He would rather it be called 'everybody's ylang-ylang'.

Ylang Ylang #1 is the 'premiere' .

The many Ylang Ylang:

- Ylang Ylang Extra - first distillation - usually the first 30 to 45% of the total distillate
- Ylang Ylang # 1 - called the premiere
- Ylang Ylang # 3
- Ylang Ylang Complete

Ylang Ylang is a very important material used in perfumery.
Though I must say .. Ylang Extra is way to 'heady' for me.
However, is used in many high end perfumes.
I prefer blending with either Ylang # 1 or Ylang # 3.
Which to me is much softer and not so 'in your face' .

Blends well with: bergamot, resins (such as benzoin, peru balsam and spices such as
cinnamon and close , florals (such as jasmine) blends perfectly with Sandalwood and cedarwoods.

Caution:
Excessive use may cause headaches or nausea.
External use ONLY.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Store away from children & pets.
