White champaka (Michelia alba) products are popular in the Indian market. The fragrance is widely used to produce various cosmetic products and incense sticks. The other species of genus Michelia is Michelia champaka, the golden variety champaka (swarna champa), which is also very popular in India for its beautiful fragrance and is held sacred by Hindus. The essential oil of the flower is widely used in perfumery and also as a stimulant. The volatile components present in these two species of Michelia were extracted by hexane and their relative compositions were examined by GC-MS analysis.
