Umuhei, the unique and fragrant bouquet of the Marquesas, is made of different items depending on the island or even the village, but usually includes ylang-ylang, a local flower known as vao vao, wild red ginger, a yellow root known as eino’o, and sandalwood-soaked pineapple eyes. This one also contains basil and tiare (Tahitian gardenia). Made by Pava Raihauti, Tahuata, 2013.
