Chinese perfume plant

Aglaia odorata is a species of plant in the Meliaceae family. It is found in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Myanmar, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and possibly Laos.

The Chinese perfume plant grows slowly but is easy to care for and has strong scented flowers. The small yellow flowers look a lot like grains, and the cosmetic industry widely uses them because of their pleasant scent and the other skin and body benefits associated with the Chinese perfume plant. The scent makes it a much-sought-after houseplant, and with these easy care instructions, you will soon enjoy the fragrance of its flowers. More
