Ylang ylang, to my nose, is a really strong floral scent, the only EO I've used that is really floral. I use it in really small percentages like I would patchouli. A little of it goes a long way, and it sticks really well. And blends well with litsea.Litsea huh...I'll get some since many people recommending it for blending, lemony smell is great for me. Thanks to everyone for the helpful tips. I thought ylang ylang had a sharp scent like tea tree, no?
Texas cedarwood is a juniper, not a true cedar. Virginia cedarwood is likewise. Maybe that's why Texas cedarwood EO doesn't have those vanilla notes you find in other cedars? Himalayan and Atlas cedarwood EOs are true cedars.
