A beautiful flower with reflex petals, hyacinths make a stunning addition to any arrangement and their lovely, heady scent is an added bonus.


Freesia Flowers


Delicate, small, with vibrant colors, Freesia also has a sweet, citrusy fragrant that makes them one of the world’s most popular flowers. Their aroma is so pleasant it’s often used in perfumes, lotions, soaps, and hand creams. Their scent can vary somewhat based on their color, with red and pink freesias typically having the strongest scent.


Colorful Roses


Roses are well-known for their beauty, grace, and intoxicating scents. Darker colored roses like pink and red typical have a stronger scent. A rose’s fragrance varies based on its genetic make-up and growing conditions so you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get. This only adds to the appeal of the wonderful and mysterious rose. For strong-smelling varieties, garden roses are the best choice.


Pale Pink Peonies


These lush, complex blooms with soothing colors are a wondrous delight to look at, but they also come with a fresh pleasing scent too. Some consider the peony to be the best smelling flower around. Their shape and fragrance pair well with other scented florals such as roses and sweet pea.


Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea

Small, delicate, and pleasantly fragrant, Sweet Pea flowers are a great addition to any floral arrangement or can stand on their own, too. Their thin petals and lovely colors of white, pink, and purple give them an elegant and graceful quality. A wonderful gift for any flower lover, you can’t go wrong with Sweet Peas.


Stargazer Lily


Lilies are known for being one of the most fragrant flowers around with a sweet, honey-like smell that can fill a room. Not all lilies have a strong scent, but for the strongest, Starfighter, Stargazer, and Orchid lilies take the prize. Sonata lilies have a much lighter and citrus-like scent perfect for those with delicate noses or allergies, and Rose Lilies offer the softest yet still delightful and pleasing aroma.
