Ylang-Ylang (cananga odorata) is a tree of the family of Annacée, originally fromSoutheast Asia. It is cultivated for its flowers from which we extract by Distillation A Essential oil widely used in Perfumery.

The term cananga comes from the name Indonesian and Javanese of the tree, Kenanga. The vernacular name Ylang-Ylang comes from the name of the tree in Tagalog (Language of Philippines)1, and means " The flower of flowers ”.

John Ray is interested in this tree in 1650 and collects the first information on this tree which he named : Arboor Saguisen2,3.

Ylang-ylang is a tree, with evergreen foliage, cut at 2–3 M high in culture but up to 25–30 M in its original natural environment. It has a largely spread crown. Its growth is very rapid in the first years since it can reach 2 to 5 meters per year4.

The alternate, whole, tough, 8-20 × 4–8 leaves CM, bright green on the upper side, are arranged very regularly along the branches, generally in the same plane. The ribs are very marked4.

The axillary, solitary or clusters flowers, carried by a peduncle of 2.5–5 cm, are composed of a chalice with three lobes of 6 mm reflect, six long petals in strips, hanging, arranged on two circles and many stamens arranged in a spiral as well as many carpels . The petals give off a penetrating, spicy smell reminiscent of eyelets, narcissus and jasmine. The petals first white, then take a greenish shade and then saw yellow while their base colors red. Flowering is spread over the whole year but it is more abundant during the hot and humid period4.

The fruits, of 25 mm long, are formed by a juxtaposition of several Méricarpes, pendants, ovoid, greenish then blackish at maturity, in which individual berries, welded on an axis floral form a fleshy mass. They contain 6 to 12 seeds flattened, pale brown4.
