Flowers are an amazing gift to send to someone or to receive yourself because of their striking beauty, delicate and intriguing textures, and array of beautiful colors. Additionally, many flowers also have a sweet, lovely, and intoxicating scent. If you want to make sure the next bouquet of florals you send to someone has fragrant flowers within, then check out the list below. We’ve highlighted some of the best-smelling flowers that will delight anyone.
These highly fragrant flowers are known for having a strong, sweet scent. Hyacinths come in a variety of colors like pink, red, purple, white, orange, and blue. Their scent is so sweet that it deters pests and animals attracted to their bright colors. A wonderful pick-me-up for anybody who loves sweet aromas, the hyacinth is an awesome flower that enhances any bouquet.
Freesias have a sweet and fruity scent and they grow in a variety of beautiful colors. A charming flower with delicate leaves, having freesias in a bouquet is a wonderful way to bring a natural, sweet smell to any home.
Known the world over for its beauty and its intoxicating scent, roses make a wonderful addition to any bouquet or can stand alone, too. There are different types of fragrances in roses, though, based on their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and age. Also, darker colored roses like red and pink have a stronger fragrance than lighter-colored ones. Smelling roses is considered relaxing and restorative as it makes us stop to take a moment to breathe in deeply and slowly so as to enjoy its pleasing aromatic notes.
Peonies bloom only for a short period of time, but when they do, these full, gorgeous blooms emit a fresh, sweet fragrance that can fill a room with their wonderful aroma. Peonies come in an assortment of pleasing colors such as pink, white, lavender, and magenta. Pink and white double peonies tend to be the most fragrant while single peonies do not have a scent. With over 40 different species of peonies, their scent can range from sweet and fresh to citrusy and spicy, like ginger.
The delicate, pleasing aroma of the Sweet Pea is what makes it a favorite scent in soaps, perfumes, and lotions. Charming and gentle, this a flower that pairs well with other scented florals. With thin, fragile petals that make up a small bloom, the scent of the Sweet Pea more than makes up for its size. This is a flower that adds a wonderful pop of color and pleasing fragrance to any arrangement.
Lilies come in a range of no smell, light and pleasant smelling, to overwhelmingly fragrant and perfumey. Starfighter lilies have the strongest scent which is described as sweet and tropical, which goes nicely with this bloom’s rich pink color. Sonata lilies have more of a light, citrusy fragrance which is more subtle and delicate. Rose Lilies, known more for their dramatic look, offer just a hint of a delightful smell.
The herb Lavender has been cherished for centuries for its wonderful aroma which is soothing and calming. Its dark purple petals also make it lovely to look at and lavender goes great alone or with other florals.
