Ylang, Extra (Cananga odorata var genuina) essential oil/ Madagascar, Comoros

It was at the close of a long, golden, tropical afternoon, and the vesper bells were ringing leisurely, yet insistently, from every church steeple in Manila; that city of churches and tolling bells, of ruins, mystery and romance. Within the walled city the air was still hot and ylang-ylang scented, but on the Luneta drive a breeze was blowing fresh from the scintillating bay, refreshing cosmopolitan Manila in its monotonous gyrations around the bandstand; that Mecca of music lovers, whatever their nationality.
