Ylang Ylang Complete’s aroma is intensely sweet, floral, and rich with herbaceous undertones, giving it a lighter scent than Ylang Ylang Extra. It has been distilled for about 15 hours.
The essential oil Ylang Ylang is distilled in “fractions” (oil is taken off at different stages based on time). The difference in the grades extra, 1, 2, 3, and complete are based on the amount of time spent in the distillation process. The different grades do not indicate the quality of the oil—rather, the difference in aroma and constituents. The first fraction extracted is called “extra” and it requires about two hours of distillation. The aroma is sweeter and fruity and contains more esters. The full distillation, that takes about 15 hours, creates the Ylang Ylang Complete, with a rich, herbaceous aroma that has more sesquiterpenes.
Ylang Ylang Complete vs Ylang Ylang Extra
Ylang Ylang Extra’s aroma is intensely sweet, floral, and rich with slightly fruity undertones. Its scent is the sweeter of the two. Extra is considered to be the most therapeutic of the two. It has been distilled for about 2 hours and the scent is slightly different than Ylang Ylang Complete
Ylang Ylang Complete’s aroma is intensely sweet, floral, and rich with herbaceous undertones, giving it a lighter scent than Ylang Ylang Extra. It has been distilled for 6-20 hours. This one is a favorite to use in blends.
When distilling Ylang Ylang, the first portion extracted is slightly therapeutically superior and has a unique smell. This first portion we call “extra” and it requires only 2 hours of distillation. However, the Ylang Ylang must be distilled longer to extract all of the therapeutic constituents from the plant. The first few hours of the distillation process create the Ylang Ylang Extra while the the full distillation, anywhere from 6-20 hours, creates the Ylang Ylang Complete, because it is a complete distillation of the plant matter.
