A sacred flower for Javanese peoples.
My friend gave me a Magnolia flower bud several days ago.
It was a local variety of Magnolia.
We call it Cempaka Gondok Kuning, Cempaka Kebo or Cempaka telur (Magnolia liliifera).
Telur means egg, cause the flower bud have the same shape and size like as a chicken egg, even bigger.
The aroma is like as Sallaca fruit.
We could enjoy the scent only in the morning time for about two or three hours.
Thanks friend for the beauty and scent that you share.
