Precious Ylang Ylang grows in the lush forests of the Comoros islands, off the south coast of Africa. It is rich and buttery, with a delicious sweet floral fragrance and a soft touch of spice.
The tree originated in the Philippines, where it was named the "flower of flowers" due to its magnificent beauty. The delicate blooms are handpicked at dawn and must be distilled within two hours. It takes 50 kilos of flowers to yield 1kg of ylang ylang essence.
BEBEL, created by renowned perfumer Yann Vasnier, features Ylang Ylang from Moheli, the smallest of the Comoros islands. The sunny flower is carefully paired with lovely Star Magnolia, crisp pear d’Anjou, white peonies, creamy sandalwood and musks.
