Cananga (Cananga odorata var. macrophylla) essential oil/Indonesia

Cananga essential oil is a pale yellow liquid displaying fresh sweet, balsamic, floral bouquet with a delicate, green, honeyed undertone of good tenacity.

Many people refer to this oil as an inferior type of Ylang(as it belongs to the same genus as species) but I feel it should be appreciated on its own merits. It is certainly cheaper in price than ylang but it has its own laudible olfactory qualities.

In natural perfumery serves well in a great many types of floral type perfumes, colognes, tropical bouquets, Oriental bases
