Production: Solvent extraction from fresh flowers of Plumeria rubra acutifolia.
Use in Perfumery: A rich deep warm and heady floral heart note that is also soft and complex. Suggestive of jasmine, orange blossoms, tuberose and gardenia.
Comment: Vastly superior to the cloying Indian versions that are the more commonly available. Plumeria are most fragrant during the evening and at night in order to attract the sphinx moth which pollinates them. The flowers of this variety can be pink or white and yellow. The flowers don't contain any nectar but get inadvertantly pollinated by duped moths going from flower to flower in search of supper.
