BM Ylang Ylang

Hi - Has anyone tried Ben Moore's ylang ylang? I bought it for the living room but am having some buyer's remorse as I'm not sure if it's too much of a kitchen color (we don't get a lot of direct sun in the living room so we thought this would brighten it up). Thanks!

It is definitely to me not a neutral white... too bright and it throws some shade.. I don't recall if it is chartreuse or what in tone. For light white have you checked out cloud white? I like a mellowed, more ancient white so I love Deep In Thought as a white. It has a way of being warm and cozy yet neutral in what it throws, to my eye. If it is too dark but you like it's character a 50% tint of it is very pretty too. (Can you tell I'm in love with that color?!)
