The aroma of Ylang Ylang is sweet, floral and heavy. There are several grades of this essential oil. The large flowers of Ylang Ylang are subjected to fractional steam distillation, yielding, in succession, ylang-ylang extra, I, II, and III. The grades (Extra, I, II and III) indicate from which fraction of the steam distillation process the oil was obtained. Ylang Ylang III is an excellent oil for aromatherapy and soapmaking.
Ylang Ylang relaxes and arouses; in Europe, therapists use this oil for sexual dysfunction. Eases frigidity and impotence. It is said to be antidepressant, antiseptic, aphrodisiac and sedative. Excessive use may lead to headaches and nausea. Could possibly irritate sensitive skins and is indicated against use on inflammatory skin conditions and dermatitis. Could well ease feelings of anger, anxiety, shock, panic and fear. Useful with rapid breathing and heartbeat; its sedative properties could help bring down high blood pressure. Soothes anger. Has a tonic and stimulating effect on the scalp promoting a more luxurious hair growth.
Blends well with bergamot, citronella, jasmine, lavender, lemon, rose, sandalwood and verbena. Flash point: 167F.

It is very hard to describe what this smell it like. It is deep; it is a base note. You know this is not fragile and will not fade like a top note. I would not exactly call it a floral, in that it does not smell like rose or gardenia or anything light and subtle. Ylang is often described as sensuous or sexy. Maybe it is. It can be mixed with Lavender or Rosemary, and surely many others.

Smells great and is super super strong. You only need a little to go a long way. Sweet, almost cloying aroma with heavy floral notes.

Great Price, Great EO
Surprisingly enough, I am not a huge fan of Ylang Ylang in general. However, my customers love it and Camden Grey's Ylang Ylang #3 is better than others I have used. It tends to be an expensive oil and so I find the price here to be very fair and the oil to be lovely. Thanks Camden Grey!

I received my purchase yesterday and had to make a lavender/ylang ylang lotion immediately! I love the scent of this Ylang ylang. It reminds me of honeysuckle flowers and is perfect because I wanted to add some more floral essential oils to my stock.

Ylang Ylang III
I like the smell of this a lot especially when diluted a little in a carrier oil! I am very curious to how this smells compared to Ylang Ylang and Ylang Ylang II.
