Cananga odorata - also known as ylang-ylang - has been referred to as the Queen of the Perfume World and we’re paying tribute to its’ use in the world’s most iconic perfumes with a creamy floral which is certain to become your ultimate summer signature scent! A decadent and delicious blending of cocoa butter, ylang-ylang EO and coconut cream with a softly sheer base of myrrh and white and golden ambers, plus the added sweet sexiness of AJA, our copulin analog derived from a natural plant hormone which, when concentrated, gives off a honey-like scent which is incredibly evocative of sexual arousal.

Fans of our Private Edition fragrances Lisa’s Creamy Ylang and Lady Victoria’s Sweet Little Pussycat won’t want to miss out on this fabulous scent!

Of course I had to get this because COCONUT, and I'm a huge fan of Creamy Ylang and Sweet Little Pussycat so I knew this would be a hit - and it is. It's delicious creamy coconut and cocoa butter that dries down to reveal that heady, exotic ylang ylang that blends in smoothly with that creaminess and gives it a heightened sensuality that is deepened by the amber and myrrh as it dries down further. The resins deepen the scent but this is definitely coconut, cocoa and ylang ylang sorcery. I'm in love with this.

Wet this Cocoa Butter is exactly the same as my Angelique! It’s definitely the most forward note. I get the coconut as well as it starts drying down and it’s melded so completely with the cocoa butter that they really merge into one Coco/Cocoa Note. The ylang is very light on me but just ever so slightly there. It’s not really reminding me of Sweet Little Pussy at all because the musk in that one just made it smell completely differently than this. I can barely detect the myrrh or Aja but just there is a bit of grounding and deepening going on. The ylang is coming out more and more as it dries but I’d like more. I have a feeling that it might come out more after travel shock has worn off though. I’ll be back to update if the super long dry down changes this significantly. Perfect summer perfume!

On my skin this is coconut forward. A little meaty. The Ylang is right behind the coconut. The cocoa butter is far in the background. I dont get much "coconut cream" which, along with the musk are my favorite elements of the original Sweet Pussy. 

Coconut, ylang lovers will like this as a summer scent. I'll be back later to report on the longer dry down.

I agree with halo about the cocoa butter - the combination of the cocoa butter and the Aja is making me think of Angelique/Odalisque, and this reminds me somewhat of Tsunonme as well, actually,  Not so much of either of its' inspirations.  It's a great combination, though, always - it's just not exactly what I expected it to be.

I'm waiting for it to settle a little more, it was the first one I opened and it was mostly cocoa butter, and then I fell asleep within 10 or 15 minutes so I decided to wait a whole week before investigating again.

I am dying over those who are getting tons of coco butter. I just did not get that in this try. Tons of coconut, ylang, a bit of the butter & Aja. No myrrh tho :( 

I am glad I got another Lisa's.

As Luna noted you really can't go wrong with any and all of these notes in some combo. I am not sure what I was looking for. Less coconut more coco butter and cream I guess.

I will try again.

 I think I have a large back log of LP beachy scents to get through the next few years. :)

Coconut scents have poking at me a bit lately. Maybe I have coconut burn out?

Stacy, same for me.  This is coconut forward then cocoa butter.  The cocoa butter is sweeter like Odalisque.  This latest version of Creamy Ylang has a different cocoa butter than the previous version—more of the roasted/toasted in Dancing with Desire.  To me, Creamy is like a dark roast coffee vs. this is a blonde roast, if that makes any sense.  I like both but I also have a lot of coconut scents and I’m not getting the myrrh much right now.  So ylang to ylang is similar, the cocoa butter is deeper on Creamy Ylang, and the coconut is more forward on Canaga.  Ergo, I get to buy both Ylang and Canaga with no guilt.

The ylang did come out just a bit more in this after long drydown and the Aja came in big time to add considerable sweetness. Unusual really for Aja to not appear til this late in the game but quite a nice surprise👌🏼

I am super into beachy scents right now. This totally fits the bill! 

I get mostly cocoa butter. If I search, I can pick out the ylang. The amber and myrrh are soft. This is the perfect scent for a sexy summer evening!
