A traveler drawn to tropical climates, ylang-ylang first appeared in Southeast Asia before settling in Madagascar and the Comoros, its main producers today. Its long, slender petals waft their intoxicating scent at nightfall. Turned into absolute or essential oil, it gives off floral, spicy, fruity, solar and creamy notes. Discover all the facets of this exotic flower by journeying through botany, history, gastronomy, agriculture and chemistry without overlooking, of course, perfume and perfumers.
