Much like the spice the flower also possess a similar smell. While jasmines are best known for their aromatic scent, all jasmines are not fragrant. Other sweet smelling jasmines, such as yellow star jasmine, are not true jasmines but are highly aromatic.

Quite possibly one of the most romantic flowers, surprisingly not all roses give off a sweet smell. The darker red ones are not as sweet smelling as the lighter pink ones such as shown here.

This is my favorite flower because it’s purple and in my opinion has the most beautiful smell. While some irises possess a more sweet smell than others both will do perfectly in your home.

Honey suckle

It lives up to its name- giving off a scent similar to floral honey. Although they don’t last long once cut from its roots they do make the perfect addition to a bouquet.

Some of these flowers don’t have a scent but some do and when you find those that do, they smell amazing. Their fragrance is beyond comparison and they give off a tropical and floral scent.


Depending on the type and color of the lilac, this will determine what smell it carries. From strong & sweet, to spicy & intense, each flower is different and will carry its smell for up to 3-4 weeks.

Bee Balm

In addition to attracting bees, butterflies, and other creatures this flower also produces a rich lemony aroma which can be quite pleasing. This smell will be most noticeable on a warm day when the heat of the day brings the aroma out.

Butterfly bush


Not only do they radiate a beautiful scent but your yard will also be swarming with tons of beautiful creatures (butterflies).

There are two scents this flower can have. One being a strong floral scent and the other being of ginger and spices. Once the flower starts to die they still continue to give off such a vibrant smell.
