The volatile compounds from flower of B.officinalis were collected by dynamic absorption, and analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The relative content of each compound was determined by area normalization. Sixteen compounds were isolated and among them, eleven compounds were identified, accounting for 95.44% of the total volatile component. The major compounds were butyl ester acetic acid (81.57%), benzaldehyde (4.92%), 3-hexen-1-ol (3.26%), lilac aldehyde B (2.34%) and linalool L (1.05%). The result reveals natural floral fragrance of B.officinalis and could provide the scientific data for further germplasm innovation of new odor type cultivars in Buddleja in future.
