Nosy Be (or Nossi-Bé) is an island off the northwest coast of Madagascar, commonly known as the “scented island” due to the abundance of extremely high-quality perfume materials grown on its northern half. Of these ingredients, the ylang-ylang grown by Robertet is among the most unique and treasured. During an arduous 12 hour distillation process, only 6kg of ylang ylang essential oil is produced from every 300kg of raw flowers used, and the resulting oil is spectacular- creamy, fruity, carnal and exotic.
Perris Monte Carlo Ylang Ylang Nosy Be, produced only from the tiny portion (generally under 2%) of each distillation determined to meet the “Extra” quality designation, is a spectacular floral, showcasing every bit of ylang’s distinct and versatile character. This oil is blended expertly at each stage of the fragrance- in the top, with delicate amounts of citrus to bring out the freshness and energy; in the heart, with rose, jasmine and orange blossom for warm, floral depth; and in the base, with seductive, exotic woods and warm musks and resins to highlight its creamy, mouthwatering depth. Sensual, elegant and seductive, Ylang Ylang Nosy Be is a truly remarkable and unique floral of untold complexity.
