Osmanthus is reminiscent of a Chinese garden. The osmanthus fragans is a Chinese tree whose scent is often referred to as "the Perfume of perfumes". Its seed is rare, germinating only after two years of gestation, and its most intense aroma emanates from the most frangible of the various existing breeds. The osmanthus flower blooms in autumn, and its refined fragrance travels far, touching the hearts of the Chinese with a soft sense of nostalgia. Its poetic refinement is depicted by a legend in which Wu Gang, the giant, driven by jealousy, repeatedly attempts to eradicate Osmonthe due to its pure floral redolence.
