A Summer's Night At The First Light Of Dawn
Like satin, faille, and taffeta fashioned in gorgeous party dresses in haute couture ateliers, Zara Ylang Supreme is dressed in gold threads, net, silk, feathers, stones, or eytlra beetles. The perfume comes with a pale dusty blue elegant box, identical to the others of the same series like Coral Peony, for instance, and likewise the cap and the knot.
The olfactory pyramid is entirely pure, Zara mentions only three notes on the site's official page, precisely ylang ylang, orange blossom, and sandalwood. However, a trained nose can easily catch some other dominant notes, i.e., jasmine and musk. The essence is like the petals of a flower in full bloom. All elements are detectable and balanced; perhaps everything has a synthetic smell, but, in a pleasant sensation, it has a slightly retro atmosphere.

When I first spray it, Ylang Supreme opens up and expands in a fresh, sunny, exhilarating way. I get a bit of zestiness, which disappears after a few seconds. Albeit not mentioned, I reckon some kind of citrus fruit and sharp, spicy blends in the original mix, citrus but not too harsh. If I smell it very close to the skin, mossy and animal shades caress my nostrils. The orange blossom has the sweet fuzziness of orange soda, with tinged jasmine. Good jasmine is hard to find, and this comes floating from the bottle wrapped in waves of bright and dewy citrus fruits. I find it to be green jasmine, so raw and ethereal; it lacks some carnal and dirty aspects of the flower.

The heart reveals dusty shades of the iris, always sweet but floral, not with an atmosphere of lipstick, only dusty and caramelized. Right off the bat, notes of vanillic ylang-ylang and a creamy fruit slowly emerge from the citrus blast. The accents of sparkling jasmine and buttery ylang-ylang blend in a splendid white floral mood, which, however reliable, stands out for being significant, perhaps nothing innovative but delightful. The overpowering jasmine overlooks the ylang-ylang, so strongly that ZARA could have called the perfume Jasmine Supreme. The middle stage is sweet, but not all too sweet. The sweetness comes from the orange blossom drops, another dominant note in the fragrance's heart. Honestly, perceivable in all the passages of the perfume's evolution.

As Ylang Supreme dries down, it becomes a pretty yet straightforward floral musk, not the laundry white musk, yet an animal deer musk. There is a touch of something creamy and smoothing going on, perhaps attributed to the sandalwood, and it feels like a seamless transition from the velvety smooth quality of the florals in the heart. A scent that never overwhelms, but has a comfortable presence throughout it.

Ylang Supreme is not the world's most innovative, outrageous, or unique fragrance; however, it is a good, classic, reliable, and well-made perfume, a lovely jasmine perfume. It is soft-spoken and intelligent, warm and inviting, pretty and easy-going, one of the nicest jasmines I've smelled in a while, not so washed out that it is dull. My only downside with this lovely fragrance is that my skin has eaten most of it in 4 hours, there are the vaguest musk and wood hint left that is not a skin-ish scent. So both sillage and longevity are below average. The outcome makes me think of a spring and fall scent, which is also wearable on summer evenings and nights out and fitting a warm day at the office.

This review bases upon a 100 ml (3.4 FL oz.) bottle I own since July 2020.

Summer, sun, good mood
The fragrance starts with ylang-ylang and orange blossom, with ylang being a little more prominent. I am surprised how much I like the fragrance right from the moment I spray it on. But between the flowers a touch of green freshness also flashes through. It could be a few grasses or even a mint leaf, but used in a very minimalist way.

Afterwards the fragrance becomes warm, but not in the sense of cuddly. For me it feels like sun on my skin. Not a glaring sun that burns the skin, but a pleasantly warming one - a sun in gold/orange.

Ylang Supreme brings a smile to my face and I feel like I'm on holiday. This pleasure lasts about 8 hours and gets creamier and softer towards the end. At the end I perceive a trace of vanilla sweetness, with which the fragrance leaves and melts away, like a beautiful sunset after a magical summer day.

The price/performance ratio is unbeatable and all those who are still looking for olfactory accompaniment, for little money, for spring/summer, should definitely try Ylang Supreme.

By sharing Parforgie I was allowed to get to know this beautiful scent and therefore I would like to thank you again at this point. My bottling will certainly be emptied very quickly and afterwards I will also buy Ylang Supreme.
