A number of flower species in India are known as champa or champak:
Magnolia champaca, formerly classified as Michelia champaca (swarna champa or yellow champa)
Plumeria rubra (frangipani)
Mesua ferrea (nagkeshar or nagchampa)
Of these—Magnolia champaca, is mostly used to prepare the nag champa scent, while Plumeria or Mesua ferrea may be used for scents termed champa and sometimes nag champa.
Nag champa perfume ingredients vary with the manufacturer, though generally they include sandalwood and magnolia, which, as the plant is related to star anise, gives the scent a little spice. Other ingredients will depend on the finished product. Perfume-dipped incenses and soaps would use essential oils or scents, while masala incenses would use finely ground fragrant ingredients as well as essential oils.
