Flowers are one of the greatest gifts you can give someone due to their striking beauty, delicate and intriguing textures, and variety of vibrant colors. In addition to these amazing characteristics, many flowers also have sweet, pleasant, and intoxicating scents. If you’d like to include fragrant flowers in the next bouquet you gift to someone, be sure to check out the below list of best-smelling florals so your recipient will experience a gift that delights their sense of smell as well as their sense of sight.
Highly fragrant and known for having an earthy and sweet scent, Hyacinth flowers bloom in dense clusters of pink, red, purple, white, and blue colors. Its aroma develops as the bud blooms, starting out as lightly floral and becoming more intense as it opens. The scent is so sweet that it deters pests and animals drawn to its bright colors. Hyacinths are a great pick-me-up for anybody who loves sweet aromas.
Freesias have a sweet, fruity scent and grow in a variety of vibrant colors. A beautiful trumpet-shaped flower with delicate leaves, freesia is a wonderful way to bring a natural, sweet aroma to your home.
Known the world over for its beauty and its intoxicating scent, roses are a favorite of many. A complex flower, there are actually different types of fragrances roses can have due to their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and age. Dark roses like red and pink have a stronger fragrance than lighter-colored roses. Also, the scent of a rose as a bud is different from when it is fully opened, and a rose’s fragrance increases when the weather is warm and humid. Smelling roses is considered relaxing and restorative as it makes us slow down, breathe deeply, and enjoy its wonderfully delightful aromatic notes.
Peonies are lush, gorgeous blooms that emit a fresh, sweet fragrance. Peonies come in an assortment of pleasing colors such as pink, white, lavender, and magenta and are considered one of the best-smelling flowers around. Pink and white double peonies tend to be the most fragrant while single peonies do not have a scent.
With a delicate, pleasing aroma, the Sweet Pea is a favorite smell found in soaps, perfumes, and lotions. Sweet and gentle, this a flower that pairs well with other scented florals such as roses and peonies. Sweet Peas add a wonderful pop of color and a delightful fragrance to any arrangement.
Lilies come in a range of colors and different degrees of smell. Starfighter lilies have the strongest scent often considered sweet like honey. Sonata lilies have more of a citrus-like smell which is more subtle and light. Rose Lilies, however, have just a hint of a pleasing smell.
Lavender has been prized for centuries and its blooms have been used for their soothing and calming properties. Fresh cut lavender lasts for over a week in water and also dries well, so you can enjoy its aroma for a long time afterwards.
