The primary commercial product of Ylang Ylang flower is the distilled oil for the perfume industry, much of which is shipped to France.

 

Ylang-ylang oil is said to be the basis for Chanel #5 perfume and other perfumes by Guerlain of France.

 

Mature flowers are hanging in clusters from a tall, mature tree.

Cananga odorata var. 'Fruticosa'

Family Annonaceae
