Ylang Ylang is a star-shaped, yellow flower with large, curved petals that is indigenous to the rain forests of many Asian nations, Polynesia and Madagascar.

The name, ylang ylang, derives from the Tagalog word, ilang, which translates to wilderness. Some suggest this is a reference to the manner in which the flowers dangle and dance into the heart of the wind.

Blooms are bunched very close together in numbers of 4 to 12 on the branches of the fragrant, tropical Cananga tree, which is known to grow up to 40 meters (131 feet) in height. Each bloom has 2 sets of 3 petals, which are at first green, and as they mature, become yellow.

This essential oil’s moniker as the Queen of Perfumes, is well earned, as its exotic, deep and rich fragrance has been used for centuries both for its therapeutic properties and as an ingredient in some of the world’s most iconic fragrances, including Chanel #5, where it serves as a vital aldehyde that forms a link between between the aldehydic head notes and the floral heart notes of dreamy, musky rose and intense, haunting jasmine.
In the modern perfume landscape, ylang yang is a favored ingredient and it is found in the formulations of many of the worlds’s leading perfumers.

Not a lot is known about the origins of this glorious, redolent flower. Some botanists theorize that the ancient civilization of Polynesia spread the use of this flower during its early years of settlement.

Others believe that the flower became popular during the burgeoning stages of European colonialism.

What is known for sure is that it was the French who introduced the commercial cultivation of ylang ylang to the islands of the Indian Ocean in the latter years of the 18th century.

What Does Ylang Ylang Smell Like?

The unique and powerful fragrance of ylang ylang is dreamy and romantic, featuring floral notes nuanced with aspects of creamy, balsamic and powdery custard, intoxicating jasmine, sweet, slightly pungent banana, light and bitter neroli and sensual, sugary honey.
It also blends well with other facets, and its verdant richness is like no other fragrance element in the world. There are chemical compounds that help to define its distinctive character.

The most prominent is linalool, a natural alcohol laden with fresh, floral facets. Ylang ylang is most often found in feminine products and perfumes, but it is also sometimes incorporated into more masculine scents, aided by notes like creamy sandalwood and green, musty and balsamic vetiver.

Where Does Ylang Ylang Come From?

The process of steam distillation is used to extract the essential oil from its precious floral source. This method vaporizes volatile compounds that are carefully collected and compressed.

A grading system classifies the diverse types of ylang ylang, and depending on how it will be used, extraction will vary in strength. Perfume, for example, requires a more potent concentration than cosmetic products.

The most potent and expensive form of this essential oil extract is known as Extra, and it contains the highest concentration of natural, organic compounds such as: linalool, geranyl acetate and benzyl acetate.
This variety is most commonly found in distinctive perfumes because of its refined, rich and sophisticated scent. “First”, “Second” and “Third” variations differ in potency, with “Third’” being the mildest.

Ten to twenty hours of continuous distillation creates an essential oil known as “Complete”, which is a combination of all four stages of distillation, and it contains the heaviest amounts of redolent facets like betacaryophyllene (BCP) and germacrene, both of which render deep, floral and fruity tones to any Alpha Aromatics’ fragrance containing ylang ylang.

The Many Benefits Of Ylang Ylang

This iconic fragrance has been used in aromatherapy for centuries untold as a means to alleviate symptoms associated with stress and anxiety. Its soothing character is said to foster a positive mindset and reduce feelings of anger.

It is also commonly used to improve memory and thinking skills, and is a powerful aphrodisiac. In Indonesian culture, these flowers are often sprinkled across the beds of newly-wedded couples.

A 2013 Korean study involving 52 participants indicated that ylang ylang was helpful in reducing blood pressure levels. It is also used in some skin care products, as it is known to normalize the secretion of sebum (the fatty lubricant matter secreted by sebaceous glands of the skin).

Fragrance oil ingredients :

Fragrance oils in general are made up of a mixture of over 100 natural and synthetic ingredients specifically engineered for varying purposes (e.g., burning oil has a high alcohol content whereas premium quality is designed to be skin safe, and has little to no alcohol content). The exact ingredients as well as manufacturing procedures are considered "trade secrets"-just like perfumes- and are protected by the FDA so we are regretfully unable to go into much detail regarding specifics. However, we can identify the staple ingredients approved by the IFRA, International Fragrance Association, for use in fragrance oil manufacturing. These ingredients consist of; plant-based carrier oils and essential oils; Aldehydes; Esters; and some variation of amines, ethers, ketones, lactones, terpenes and thiones. All our oils are phthalate and DPG free. The above ingredients can be simplified in that fragrance oil manufacturing includes essential oils, aroma chemicals, and aromatic resins. Of these three types of ingredients, there are several layers of ingredients used to create the finished fragrance oil. Due to the amount of engineering involved in designing a scent, it is treated similarly to a commercial recipe in that the exact ingredients and percentages are protected and cannot be disclosed.

How we make our fragrance oils :

Our Fragrance oils are composed of many aromatic ingredients. Many of the common ingredients used in fragrance oils include: carrier base, alcohols, aldehydes, esters, and other synthetic compounds. These ingredients can be derived from nature or created by scientific methods. Natural ingredients include essential oils, resins, and absolutes.  Ingredients that are man-made, are also found in nature and can be reproduced synthetically using scientific techniques. The synthetic versions are generally less expensive, more consistent in odor and color, and widely available.

What is IfRA

The International Fragrance Association (IFRA) is an international organization that represents fragrance manufacturers. IFRA takes the data and reports from RIFM, evaluates it and publishes guidelines for usage. IFRA will make recommendations for which raw materials are safe to use in fragrance oils; often, what is safe for potpourri will not be safe for the skin. There are over 3500 materials (aroma chemicals, essential oils and essential oil components) that are approved for use in fragrance oils. Fragrance oils are not policed by the FDA; rather, they are a self-regulated body. Each individual ingredient is tested for things such as irritation, solvency, absorption, to physical characteristics like flash point, specific gravity, and flammability as well as more serious things, such as carcinogenic indicators etc… Once an ingredient is fully tested, the results are published in a peer-reviewed journal. A group called ‘RIFM’ performs all the tests (RIFM stands for Research Institute for Fragrance Materials).
