Ylang-Ylang is the yellow flower of the fragrant Cananga tree, found in countries on the coast of the Indian Ocean. Ylang-Ylang has a sweet fruity smell that is reminiscent of Jasmine and crushed pine needles that share a banana note. This flower is usually used with other florals to smooth them out and make them more delicate in perfume.
