Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) is a soothing scent with a rich, sweet floral aroma. The name ylang ylang is derived from Tagalog, either from the word ilang, meaning “wilderness”, alluding to its natural habitat, or the word ilang-ilan, meaning “rare”, suggestive of its exceptionally delicate scent. Traditionally, the ylang ylang essential oil has been used to relax both the mind and body and is used throughout the fragrance industry for its alluring and seductive abilities. The highly coveted fragrance of ylang ylang is rich, deep yet with a delicate, flowery note.
