If you like Ylang Ylang, you will love this Canaga Java. It is strong, sweet, and very pleasant - just like Ylang Ylang but significantly cheaper. It's wonderful to mix with more herbal, strong scents like patchouli or clove.

WOW WOW WOW!!!!! As a child I lived in Africa near a plant called "Queen of the Night". At night, during the rainy season (tropical rain forest season) the beautiful scent of this tree will up the entire street at night only if it was sunny during the day. In the U.S. I discovered Ylang Ylang which reminded me a bit of Queen of the Night, but I really don't like it that much. I took a chance and purchased this EO without a review and without knowing anything about it. I am happy that I purchased it because it is BEAUTIFUL! I wish I could give it 10 stars. The scent is really strong so diluting it with carrier oil is a must. When blending only use a little bit because it will overwhelm other scents. If you like Ylang Ylang, then you will love Cananga Java! Thank you WFMED for reminding me of a beautiful tropical evening in Africa.
