What Does Ylang Ylang Incense Smell Like?
Ylang ylang is often described as a rich, floral aroma with a slight sweetness, with notes of jasmine, custard, banana, neroli, honey, and spice.
When it is used as an ingredient in incense, many of the high-notes fade into the background and the fragrance becomes richer and smokier. It is common for ylang ylang extracts to be used, because they can provide a stronger, more accurate scent when burned.
