Reply from Bramble Berry
Thanks for the feedback on this essential oil. It is 100% pure so I’m not sure where you were getting the strange alcohol smell but I’m so glad that the outgassing (or whatever caused that odd note) went away when you used it in the soap. Ylang Ylang is a classic perfume note so it makes sense that it smells more traditional than you may want. I tend to use it as a blending essential oil and find that it warms up more musky notes of Patchouli, helps balance out some of the more camphorous notes in Lavenders and works well with many citruses. I hope you’re able to find a blend that you love it in.
