Beautiful, unique, fragrant….flowers are one of the best gifts to receive and to give. Proven to uplift one’s spirits, great-smelling flowers also have a relaxing and calming effect on us as we take a long moment to inhale deeply their amazing aromas. For some of the best-smelling flowers to gift someone, or gift yourself (why not?!), see the list below.
Hyacinths are very fragrant flowers that have a robust, sweet scent. Composed of 4-6 reflexed petals, hyacinth flowers bloom in thick clusters of pink, red, purple, white, orange, and blue colors. Its aroma intensifies as the bud blooms, and it is a wonderful gift for anybody who loves sweet aromas.
Freesia flowers grow in a variety of beautiful colors and have a sweet, fruity scent. With delicate leaves, freesias have a grace and charm to them and they are a wonderful way to bring a natural, sweet smell indoors.
Beautiful, romantic, fragrant, and mysterious, roses are the most popular flower in the world. There are different types of fragrances roses have, though, determined by their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and other factors. For example, darker colored roses have a stronger aroma than lighter-colored ones. The smell of a rose in the bud is different from when the rose is fully opened, and a rose’s fragrance intensifies when the weather is warm and humid.
Peonies are lush, full blooms that emit a fresh, sweet fragrance that can fill a room with their wonderful aroma. They grow in an array of pleasing colors such as pink, white, lavender, and magenta. Pink and white double peonies are the most fragrant while single peonies do not have a scent. There are over 40 different species of peonies, and their scent ranges from sweet and fresh to citrusy and spicy, like ginger.
Sweet Peas have a delicate, pleasing aroma often found in soaps, perfumes, and lotions. Sweet and gentle, this flower pairs well with strong-scented florals such as roses and peonies. With fragile petals that make up a small bloom, the lovely scent of the Sweet Pea more than makes up for its size.
Lilies are known for being one of the most fragrant blooms around. The strength of the aroma depends on the lily variety. For extremely fragrant and perfumey, Starfighter lilies are the way to go. This type of lily has the strongest smell which is described as sweet and tropical. Sonata lilies have more of a light, citrusy aroma which is more subtle, and Rose Lilies, known more for their dramatic look, has barely a hint of a delightful smell.
The scent of lavender has been cherished for centuries and used for it’s soothing and calming properties. With lovely dark purple flowers, Lavender is great to smell and great to look at. They make a wonderful addition to any bouquet.
