Its name is derived from the plant of the same name having a peculiar hot and aromatic smell. Female dancers hold handkerchiefs scented with the "alcamfor" (naphtalene balls) believed to induce romance. The dance came from Leyte.

An interesting feature of the dance is its music. The first part is a stately 3/4 music like the French minuet and the second part is a lively music similar to the Spanish jota or seguidella.

This dance was quite popular in the late 19th century. Late 1880s and early 1890s.
