Vetiver zizanioides (vetiver) was considered an important material for the perfume industry.—The ancient Indian agriculture presents a safe technology and methodology regarding organic agriculture and organic plant mutagenesis, according to treatises (such as the Vrikshayurveda), which aims to introduce several extraordinary traits into plants and trees, such as [...] to produce and alter the fragrance of flowers.—Fragrance is an important trait in flowers, especially for the perfume industry. The terpene pathway is required to be activated. Cyperus rotundus (nut grass), Anogeissus latifolia (button tree), Vetiver zizanioides (vetiver), etc., are included in the manure as raw materials as they contain a higher percentage of terpenes. It is claimed that even non-fragrant flowers can be made fragrant by following the prescribed techniques.
