Product Abstract: Also known as Flower Of Flowers, Ylang Ylang is a tall tropical tree about 20 meters (60 feet) high with large fragrant, pink, mauve or yellow flowers; yellow heads are viewed as being the best in terms of quality. There are several grades of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, which are extracted at different times during the flower's lengthy distillation. These grades are referred to as Extra, I, II, and III. Ylang Ylang is best suited for use in the perfumery and skincare industries. It was a popular ingredient of hair preparations in Europe and was known as Macassar Oil. The word anti-macassar originated from this, since an anti-maccasar was used to keep hair oil from staining upholstered furniture. In Indonesia Ylang Ylang has traditionally been strewn on the beds of newlyweds.

Cautions: Dilute before use; May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. It can also cause sensitivity on some people; excessive use of it may lead to headaches and nausea. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Smells amazing inside the bottle and in products. It's hard to stop opening the bottle and smelling this. It smells super sweet and floral but it's not overpowering. It can definitely blend with lots of different fragrances. Very happy with this one.

I selected #3 based on the reviews, and I am quite happy with it, I'll probably order the others eventually to compare.

One of my favourite oils. A little goes a very long way and rounds out my more masculine scents. You can't put your finger on it, nor would you call the blends floral, but it give a richness, sweetness and complexity that is absolutely amazing.

I tried all the Ylang Ylangs to compare. Their smells go from (most complex, first distillation, least refined) Extra - #1 - #2 - #3 (most refined, final distillation). I actually like the #3 the best (most refined, more "simple" floral fragrance), then the Extra (has a complexity that the 1,2,3's lack. I didn't care for the #1 & #2 as much. But all work well blended.

Very familiar perfume aroma and very floral. This grade does have a kind of an upleasant backnote which is probably due to processing. Still it's very strong and seems to be good for acne but nowhere near Neroli for example.

Not a favourite. It is as described above, sweet and floral. A little too floral for me. To me it smells like a lily, i have never been to fond of that scent, maybe i'll try #1 next time.

I've smelled all the Ylang Ylang oils at New Directions and the Ylang Ylang #3 is my favourite....sweet, floral yet somewhat nutty (at least to my nose), sensual, warm scent that doesn't give me a headache. Absolutely love!

I like the aroma of this Ylang ylang and use this variety in my hair shampoo and facial cream. It is known to be helpful with acne and hair growth and has a calming influence. A very nice quality #3!
