Michelia champaca Linn
 
The Malay people called it as cempaka. Filipino called it champaka. Spanish also called it as champaka. There are 3 types of cempaka based on its color of flower: white, yellow and red. In scientific term; M. alba DC, M. champaca L., and M. figo.
 
This is a small tree, growing to a height of 6 meters or more. The bark is grey and smooth. The wood is soft, with white sapwood and light olive-brown heartwood. The young shoots are silky. The flowers are pale yellow or orange, very fragrant, and 4 to 5 centimeters long. The fruiting spike is compact and 8to 15 centimeters in length. The seeds, 1-2 are brown when old, polished, and variously angled. The flower yields the champaka oil, which is used as a perfume. The flowers are also put away with clothes to impart their perfume. The flowers appear from May to July and fruits ripen about three months later that is, in August.
