Summary: Cananga odorata (Lam.) Hook f. & Thomson forma genuina (Annonaceae) commonly called ylang-ylang is an essential oil tree used in the preparation of cosmetics. Despite this plant is an indispensable source of incomes for the producing islands, and despite its essential oil is valued by the cosmetic industry, only few studies have been conducted. Ylang-ylang essential oil sector is dying and conservation and valorization strategies are urgently needed to preserve it. During this thesis, we tried to gather the necessary data to achieve this goal. We thus characterized the variability of ylang-ylang at morphological, genetic and chemical levels. This study revealed an important variability in the chemical composition of ylang-ylang essential oil in the study area. In order to suggest valorization and conservation strategies tailored to the current context, we needed to know the causes responsible for the chemical polymorphism. These causes are to be found probably in the environmental variability. Indeed, the genetic structure only revealed few consistencies with the chemical polymorphism. It would be though wiser to further investigate these two potential causes of the chemical variability of ylang-ylang as our study is pioneer in this field. On the basis of the data collected, we then proposed a market-oriented valorization of the genetic and chemical diversity (uniformity of the quality and the composition of ylang-ylang essential oils, raw material sources and quality labels). In terms of genetic and chemical conservation, we propose a conservation strategy mainly based on an on-farm conservation in plantation. We also propose integrated valorization strategies of the on-farm conservation (direct sales and tourism). [less ▲]

Cananga odorata (Lam.) Hook.f. Thomson forma genuina (Annonaceae) is a tropical tree, grown for the production of ylang-ylang essential oil, which is extracted from its fresh and mature flowers. Despite its economic and social importance, very little information is available on its variability and the possible factors causing it. Therefore, the relationship between the genetic structure, revealed by amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), and the essential oil chemical composition, determined by GC/MS analysis, of ylang-ylang grown in semi-managed systems in three Indian Ocean islands (Grande Comore, Mayotte, and Madagascar) was investigated. Our results revealed a low genetic variation within plantations and contrasted situations between islands. Variations of the chemical composition could be observed within plantations and between islands. The genetic differentiation pattern did not match the observed pattern of chemical variability. Hence, the chemical variation could not be attributed to a genetic control. As Grande Comore, Madagascar, and Mayotte present different environmental and agronomic conditions, it can be concluded that the influence of these conditions on the ylang-ylang essential oil composition is consistent with the patterns observed. Finally, several strategies were proposed to valorize the chemical composition variations. [less ▲]

The Union of the Comoros is the world’s biggest producer of ylang-ylang essential oils. Comorian ylang-ylang also provides the most valuable essential oil that can be found on international market. This product represents a high percentage of Comoros’ annual currency. Ylang-ylang essential oil is obtained by fractionned hydrodistillation or steam distillation of Cananga odorata fresh flowers. This oil is commercialized in five different quality grades (extra S; extra; I; II; III) which possess their own physicochemical properties. [less ▲]
