    Default Ylang Ylang scents to buy as a gift?

    Anyone have know of any Ylang Ylang frags.

    1) I would be interested in something a man could wear, to sample for myself.

    2) I would also like to know about women's ylang ylang scents to buy as a present for a very dear and amazing female friend.

    Gracias!

    This is one note that I cannot wear on myself, it reminds me of the smell of cold cream (women's makeup remover).

    If you like it though, try Private Collection Amber & Ylang Ylang by Estee Lauder. Easily worn by a man. Of course, you have to like amber too.

    cK one Scene is very nice, and wearable by both a man and a woman easily. Ylang ylang is one of the dominating notes for sure, especially in the middle. I only have a small decant, but plan on buying a bottle sometime soon. Probably the best of the cK One line that I've tried.

    I did a search for Ylang Ylang and two offerings caught my eye: Anyone tried these?

    1) Chanel Bois des ILES

    2) Floris Fleur

    Bois des Iles is a fantastic unisex/shared fragrance. It's supposed to have a gingerbread note, but it's really an intense, sweet sandalwood. Very seductive. A comfort scent.

    Paris Hilton for women is really nice, inoffensive and has Ylang Ylang, Many people love it, buy it when they try it on and become addicted to it (my mom, my cousin, my friend) so I think it'll make a great gift for women.

    In what way? Is it indolic? My friend has a ylang ylang candle that she adores, and so I thought a frag would be a great gift for her.

    Uppercut, the only thing that you should be avoiding is posts from certain newcomers.

    I may be completely off, but isn't ylang ylang a big player in L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme?

    It's a big player in quite alot of nice frags. . including my recent addiction Gendarme V, and another stunner Kenzo Jungle l'Elephant.

    Not sure what Deer Musk doesn't like.

    DeerMusk- wattup??

    I didn't understand ylang ylang until I sniffed the essential oil at Whole Foods. Very unusual stuff!
