Ravensara Aromatica is a magnificent tropical and highly aromatic tree which grows to a height of 20m in humid evergreen forests. The tree has fragrant leaves, bark and nuts, with an delicious anise scent. A native to Madagascar and other tropical Indian Ocean islands, the tree has a long history of use in those areas. The seeds were traditionally used in cooking, and the islanders also use the bark to make rum. Ravensara essential oil is often found in mens' fragrances where it adds gentle spicy notes to the fragrance.
