Ylang-ylang / Kenanga

Dear Diary,

Today, let us explore the world of plants…flowers to be exact. In my tiny garden, I have this plant that I love. When its greenish yellow flowers bloom, the scent they permeate is intoxicating. The whiff is so heavenly. This plant is called Kenanga or Ylang-ylang.

Ylang-ylang’s oil is widely used in making perfumes and aromatherapy essential oils. My beloved mother likes to pick the flowers, put it in bowls and let its smell fills our living room.

If you wanna learn more about ylang-ylang, please refer here for English and here for Bahasa Malaysia.

Hello Unaizah, thats a beautiful garden, and love the flowers.
As well your eloquence.

One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides.

Long ago I remember getting the lovely scent of this flower.
As well love bunga melor and chimpaka too.
You have a pleasant week and keep a song in your heart.
Best regards, Lee.
Ps, You have a beautiful name.
