An entrancing note of suave, floral facets. Ylang-ylang blends beautifully in floral bouquets—adding an ethereal nuance that is both spicy and quintessentially modern. A generous dose of salicylates gives ylang-ylang its exotic solar scent, and its molecular structure is intriguingly similar to both jasmine and tuberose.
"A woman's perfume, with a woman's scent... A perfume unlike any have ever made." This was Gabrielle Chanel's request to Ernest Beaux. This one creats a floral bouquet featuring rose, jasmine, and he adds the essential oil of ylang-ylang, presented for the first time at the Universal Exhibition of 1889, and whose perfumers’ enthusiasm allows Reunion Island to export large quantities in 1920. Ernest Beaux will say about ylang-ylang: “With jasmine, it's my favourite scent.”
