Information

The name “frangipani” comes from a legend of the 12th century, when an italian man called Frangipani created a very appreciated fragrance.

Four centuries later, european travellers discovered in Caribbeans the Plumeria tree, which has a similar fragrance.

Frangipani is one of the most beautiful tropical tree. Moreover, it is a perfuming and medicinal plant. It has the reputation of being immortal as it provides flowers and leaves even though it is torn.

Manufacturing Process

The frangipani flowers are harvested and dried before being hydro-distilled without any additive or chemical treatment.

The frangipani floral water obtained is then filtered and stabilized by a preservative to guarantee its freshness
