Frangipani absolute / waxy amber colored paste / Fruity, Floral, Tropical, Balsamic / $325 oz Plumeria alba
In old Ceylon
By Reginald John Farrer
In and out amid the multitudes go the sellers of flowers, and the air is heavy with the cool, sharp fragrance of the temple-flower. Five-cleft is the corolla of the temple flower, of creamy texture, and of a creamy colour that deepens insensibly to rich yellow at the centre; and its scent is of the same texture, of the same ...colour as the flower—a thick, waxy-sweet scent, creamy, dense, and primrose. It haunts all the shrines of Lanka with its pungent, uplifting ecstasy, and never any little vihara or dagaba shall you find that has not its gnarled and ancient tree of plumeria(frangipani), bossy and twisted and contorted in growth, with corrugated bark of pure silver and leafless twigs, thick and stumpy as a sausage, crowned by clusters of those divine flowers, ready always for offering at the shrine.
Frangipani Absolute is extracted from the wild growing flowers of the Plumeria alba tree in South India. The absolute is a amber colored solid waxy mass(hence must be slowly melted to become a pourable liquid) with a rich, sweet, fruity, deep floral, tropical bouquet of fine tenacity.
In natural perfumery it is used in tropical bouquets, high class florals, garland perfumes, fruity notes, temple essences. Oriental bouquets
