The Plumeria is a traditionally tropical plant with strongly fragrant flowers. The Plumeria is also called Franchipani which refers to the 16th century Marquis Franchipani, the Italian inventor of perfume based on the fragrance of this plant. Since its invention, the fragrance of this plant is still used in the perfume industry. The original Plumeria is found all over the world in tropical areas and has different meanings in various countries.
