That is so pretty. Are you planning to use them for perfume?

Hi Lisa,

Yes I would like to tincture them and use them in a perfume creation. But the plant is a little on the small side so I don't know how much fragrance I would be able to get from the flowers. Since I took this photo a few days ago though, quite a few more flowers have bloomed. I think I will mainly experiment with these for a while and see how it goes. Thanks for stopping by.


Hey Angel, yeah they are really pretty. They grow quite regularly here, people grow them mainly as ornamentation. I do have a little frangipani oil, but it came from Haiti - it has a lovely sweet smell.
