An aromatic flower...
It's well known as perfume tree or cananga tree.
This is a tropical tree which originates from South-east Asia and is valued for its perfume.
The essential oil derived from the flowers is used in aromatherapy.
The evergreen leaves are smooth and glossy, oval, pointed and with wavy margins, and 13–20 cm long.
The flower is drooping, long-stalked, with six narrow, greenish-yellow petals, rather like a sea star in appearance, and yields a highly fragrant essential oil.
This plant grows as small tree or compact shrub with highly scented flowers.
In Indonesia, especially in Javanese tradition, this flowers always present on many traditional procession or ceremony.
This flower usually are spread on the bed of newlywed couples and as decoration on bride hairs.
In Java... it's really sacred flower.
Peoples believe that they have magical power.
Can you catch the scent?
