Description of Cananga Oil

Steam-distilled from flowering Cananga odorata plants, Cananga Oil is often referred to as a "complete oil" due to its extraction method and high material yield. Sweet and floral, this viscous oil retains a tenacious odor with slightly balsamic nuances. Cananga Oil's aroma is typically heavier than that of the typical Ylang-Ylang, with some initial notes of leather and green wood. This makes Cananga especially appealing for masculine fragrances, particularly soaps and colognes. Cananga Oil's tenacity also makes it far more potent within long-lasting perfumery when compared to the more delicate ylang-ylang equivalents.
