“‘Perpetually-perfumed’, ‘eternally-surrounded-by-sweetness’. As soon as we set foot on land, we invent names to describe Nosy Be. We arrived by plane, not by sailboat. But the deliciously sweet perfume must be the same that sailors could smell from miles away: the Ylang Ylang tree flowers all year round”.
If “Tropical” is a magical word evoking dazzling light as well as darkness and mystery, Nosy Be Ylang Ylang is surely its fragrance. Intense and enveloping, when Yang Ylang oxidizes it releases unmistakable animal notes. The variety we found on the island close to Madagascar is unrivaled in its intensity: as though nature had set out to create a fragrance by blending the traditional and the new.
Notes of white flowers like Tuberose and Sambac Jasmine distinguish its sensual, fruity, exotic character, perfect for those attracted by life’s dream-like qualities. Citrus and Cardamom light up the dark, romantic landscape for a moment. Then Amber and other seductive, woody notes prevail. And the dream goes on.
