Description

Le Labo Ylang 49 is a modern floral chypre created by Frank Voelkl. He used the gorgeous Pua Noa Noa (gardenia from Tahiti) and voluptuous ylang-ylang.  Additional notes of patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver, sandalwood and benzoin give this scent its darker sensual undertones.  Ylang 49 is at extrait strength with 30% perfume oil but is called an eau de parfum, edp.

Reviews of Le Labo Ylang 49

From Bois de Jasmin - "To me, Ylang 49 smells like a perfume from a bygone era. There is nothing that smells particularly modern about it, and I mean that in the very best of ways. As a floral chypre, it succeeds, though I find that the classic mossy notes smell more like a soft mirage created by patchouli. It evolves slowly on skin for hours, and while the sillage is gentle, Ylang 49 still feels sensual and enveloping."

The Non-Blonde - "Ylang 49 may be my favorite out of all the Le Labo flower perfumes. It has  a lot of warmth and a substantial base that surround the tropical flowers and make them more abstract and mysterious. The yellow blossoms are rich and enticing, but they're also restrained and wonderfully elegant: this is what they mean by calling Ylang 49 a "modern chypre". I was ready to protest and request that the label "chypre" be retired as were the true perfumes in this category, but you won't find me kvetching this time. Ylang 49 is as chypery as it is modern. It moves from floral to a recognizable oakmoss-patchouli base; there's  a hint of chypre soapiness, a  touch of roasted tea, and instead of the  animalic base of yore you get the familiar Le Labo sandalwood enriched with benzoin."

From Makeup Alley - "I think you maybe disappointed. Ylang is a good buy if you like vintage-y strong and dry chypres. This is not a floral as you think it will be especially with the name Ylang."

    This fragrance lasts a long, long time and has big projection and sillage. On me it's a womanly fragrance - assertive, feminine, and confident. I like it very much, but after 4 hours of the sillage I felt like I needed a break!

    If Ylang 49 were a color, it would be fluorescent lavender!

    The initial blast is very bright, and reminds me of Plum Japonais (Tom Ford) and Pomegranate Noir (Jo Malone). If Ylang 49 were a color, it would be fluorescent lavender! It opens very feminine, probably due to that gardenia, but eventually gets smokier, and might be able to pass as unisex. Overall, Ylang 49 is bright and distinctive. But after wearing it awhile, all I smell is the gardenia! And, sadly, this prominent gardenia note is the reason I can only “like” this and not love it.

    Sillage Galore!

    Ylang certainly isn't shy! This edp has tons of sillage that lasts like the energizer bunny! Very pretty and not too heavy on the gardenia. I usually don't like gardenia scents-they can be too 'old ladyish- but this one certainly is not!
