The story of Ylang-Ylang begins with a tragic romance. Indeed, it is said that in the Philippines, a little girl was born that the gods baptized Ylang. He was forbidden to touch another person. Growing up, the beautiful young girl fell in love with a young man. The latter took the pretext of offering him a bouquet of flowers to succeed in touching him. As soon as their fingers met, Ylang transformed into a wonderful shrub covered in flowers. As for the young man, desperate, he continues to call his beloved: Ylang, Ylang …
This is how, according to legend, the Ylang-ylang flower was born. She is native to the Indian subcontinent, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. But, at the beginning of the 20th century, the French colonists introduced it to the tropical islands of the Pacific and the Indian Ocean (Madagascar, Mayotte…). It is harvested all year round, and especially between June and October during the dry season. The essential oil which is extracted from it is a delight for perfumers, who know better than anyone its bewitching fragrance and its aphrodisiac power.
