exquisite, tenacious, exotic
A member of themagnolia family, the flowers are intensely scented. It is sweet, exotic, tenacious, and the oil is precious.
Champa Flower essential oil is an amber colored liquid displaying a suave, sweet, floral bouquet with a fruity-herbaceous undertone.
Champaca is a tonic for the heat of summer. Chamaca is in the same class with other feminine fragrances as frangipani, ylang ylang, jasmine, rose and saffron.
A delightful champaca attar is the star of our Bougie Carnivale. More of a cologne than a perfume, our 'Carnivale' is built around silver fir and pink grapefruit.
Attar literally means perfume. Patiently steam distilled over days and often combined with sandalwood. I used the attar, essential oil and an absolute of pink champaca to create a unapologetically feminine fragrance for summer.
