Dr. Nick Notes
Plumeria is a stunning flower shrouded in beauty with legendary around Hawaii and various islands. These gorgeous flowers grow on the small Plumeria alba tree native to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America ~ Frangipani oil is now cultivated in tropical areas around the world. In mythology, Plumeria is seen as a symbol of peace and tranquility. Some Indian philosophy seems this as the “Tree of Life”, and associates Frangipani flowers with death and funerals. Malaysia considers it’s fragrance reflective of the undead. These beautiful frangipani flowers have developed a tradition for use in tropical islands (Hawaii & Tahiti) for making ceremonial leis.
Our Frangipani Absolute is derived from the tropical five petaled flowers of the exotic Plumeria alba. These flowers are creamy white and spiral open to reveal a soft yellow/orange shading towards its center. The scent whispers shades of vanilla, creme with a dry undertone ~ this Plumeria Absolute seems to add beautiful notes combined with other flowers & essential oils. Interestingly enough, I don’t prefer it on it’s own but really enjoy combining with other exotic extracts to add rich creamy dimensions in botanical perfumery.
