I buy rose from Butch at av-at.com and absolutely adore it. I carry
an empty bottle with me just to get the smell sometimes. Such a
gorgeous sweet, purple and eight aroma. (sorry, my synaesthesia
sometimes gets in the way!!)

I used to not like ylang/cananga at all- could not stand it, but then
I came across some that was obviously a much higher grade than I've
ever smelled before and I was transformed. It goes well with many
things, even light touches of lemon or lemongrass help lighten and
sweeten it's heavy dark smell. It's like a huge velvet quilt drapping
around your shoulders, eh? mmmmmmmm off to go sniff now!


: And, I totally agree with your description and experience of the
: aroma and its effect. Got to mix it with the Jasmine and then
: somebody is going to be in trouble...:-)
: An almond & rose combo is also a knockout...rose with a touch of
: almond. But that one I reserve for cold winter weather. A bit
: for me for the warm weather.
