A DAZZLING INTERPRETATION OF YLANG YLANG FLOWER

Embruns d'Ylang belongs to Guerlain’s Exclusive Collections, a range of fragrances for aficionados of rare scents, those who appreciate noble raw materials and refinement down to the last detail.

Through this spicy and luminous floral creation, the Guerlain Perfumer gives the leading role and bespoke attire to the so-called “flower of flowers”: ylang-ylang. The fragrance evokes the bracing sea spray carried by a stormy sky onto this spellbinding flower. Among its contrasts, between land and sea, woody – patchouli – and salty notes interweave, subtly teased by a hint of clove. A dazzling, sensual perfume with a captivating sillage, like a ray of sunlight filtering through a menacing horizon.
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. An elegant wooden cap adds the finishing touch to this beautiful piece. The bottle nestles in an amethyst “leather feel” case (which may be transformed into a jewellery box as you wish).

 

THE FRAGRANCE ARTIST'S TOUCH

A compelling contrast is played between ylang ylang and a fine sea salt note, which accentuates its solar aura.

"If it were an artistic craft, gold leaf gilding."

 

The “yellow gold” of the Comoros, ylang ylang emerges as radiant as a sheet of gold leaf. Colour of royalty, gold is synonymous with Paris and, by extension, Guerlain, being destined to adorn the most beautiful monuments of the City of Light for all eternity.

 

YLANG YLANG

Sourced from Guerlain's own production channels, ylang ylang stands in supreme majesty within Embruns d’Ylang. This genuine “yellow gold of the Comoros” features floral, spicy, exotic and solar facets.
Nicknamed “flower among flowers”, it grows in the sun of the Comorian archipelago, among the waters of the Indian Ocean. Being too fragile to travel, it is directly distilled on site and transformed into an essential oil.

 

In the Perfumer's Words: For this creation, Guerlain perfumer Thierry Wasser was searching for an exceptional ylang essence with a particularly expressive character. He discovered it in situ in the comoros archipelago in the Indian Ocean. This olfactory selection reflects the House's traditional standards of excellence in terms of preserving ingredients of natural origin. This incredible yellow gold from the comoros is vertical and powerful. It contains exotic fruity facets with smooth, honeyed accents.

 

THE ART OF BOTTLING

Taking inspiration from the Guerlain heritage Square Bottle (1870), the L’Art & La Matière bottle is an exceptional object whose design exudes unisex sophistication steeped with modernity.
