Last night after the heavy rain I rode my bike along McGregor Blvd and as soon as I got near the Estates, the air was thick with the scent of the Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) tree’s flowers. The Ylang Ylang is near McGregor Blvd in front of the Edison guest house but the scent was traveling past the Ford home. You may recall from a previous post that the fragrance of the Ylang Ylang is used to make Chanel No. 5. If you live near the Estates, be sure to come by sometime soon to experience this unique scent!
