Do we have any name in Telugu for Artabotrys zeylanicus ?
Artabotrys hexapetalus and Artabotrys zeylanicus are called Manoranjitham- మనోరంజితం
because the smell allures the mind -mano means mind; ranjitham means -allures
Thank you very very much ... for the name and etymology.
 
Any name in Tamil for Artabotrys zeylanicus ?
I couldn't find any specific Tamil name for Artabotrys zeylanicus may be due to rare occurrence of the species in the State.
I however noticed that sometimes the Tamil name of A. hexapetalus, 'Manoranjitham' (மனோரஞ்சிதம்), is also applied to A. zeylanicus (either by error or) possibly because of its similarity with the former species.
Thanks very very much ... for your thoughts. I too found mention of மனோரஞ்சிதம் manoranjitham at flickr.
I would go with this name especially because the name is shared even in Malayalam and Telugu languages.

It is a small plant, stems look like vine. The leaves when crushed have a pleasant fragrance. the stem curls near the leaf growth and looks like a hook
Please ID this plant. Photographed in Udupi, Karnataka.

Artabotrys hexapetalus, green champa 

Perhaps, Artabotrys sp.

From the leaves, it appears more closer to wild species of Artabotrys zeylanicus

..., I am not able to affirm the species.
Let us request … to provide information about the habitat - whether garden OR wilderness.

It is found in the wild.
