Ylang Ylang #2 is the second distillate obtained through steam distillation of freshly-picked Cananga odorata flowers. Sweeter and richer than Ylang Ylang #1, this oil is mostly used in perfumery, where it imparts a sweet and floral aroma. Ylang Ylang #2 also has far richer base notes than its earlier distillates, making it better suited for complimenting light and woody fragrances.
