The Plumeria is a traditional 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 scent of this plant. Since its invention, the scent of this plant is still used in the perfume industry.
