A chypre floral fragrance, where Pua Noa Noa (gardenia from Tahiti) completes the floral voluptuousness of ylang ylang. Patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver, sandalwood and benjoin follow to tip the blend into darker sensual undertones. Ylang 49 is a walk in the woods, a lush floral bouquet in your hand, listening to G. Gould's well-tempered clavier and realising that a floral composition can go beyond flowers, in the same way a fugue in D minor is way beyond the D.
