Ylang Ylang / イランイラン

Outline / 概要


Ylang Ylang is a tall tree native to tropical regions such as Madagascar that produces yellow star-shaped flowers. It has an exotic and rich scent reminiscent of a tropical island.

There are four grades (extra, 1st, 2nd, 3rd) depending on the distillation process, and the mixture of all grades is called “complete”. Extra is the first extracted essential oil and is the highest grade.
