What exactly is “frangipani”? In this article, we explain where this popular fragrance ingredient comes from, what it smells like and we share actual perfumes that contain frangipani.

Frangipani is a fragrant flowering tree, also known as plumeria. The oil of the colorful flower, also known as the Hawaiian Lei flower, has been used in perfumery since the sixteenth century, usually as a top or heart note.

The frangipani tree (Plumeria Rubra) is native to warm tropical areas of the Pacific Islands, Caribbean, South America and Mexico.

What It Smells Like

The oil of the frangipani flower has a complex, lush, rich floral fragrance. The flowers have been widely hybridized for cultivation, and there are many varieties available, each with its own unique flower and fragrance. Frangipani flowers may smell like roses, gardenias, pineapple, plum, citrus, ripe banana, grapes, coconut, ginger, candy, and spices.

Other Uses of Frangipani

Frangipani is a common ingredient in many fragranced soaps, candles, massage oils, and potpourris. The flowers of the plant are also considered sacred in certain tropical nations such as Bali and India, where they are used in religious ceremonies.

Hillside in Sinajana. I post these because we have some anti development types that believe we want to pave ourselves out of existence. I should take more pictures at abandoned properties and vacant lots. The jungle takes it back if you don’t beat it back
