Roses are a classic flower with a wonderful scent. Typically, the darker color the rose, the stronger its scent will be. Depending on the type of rose, the flowers can also have a range of different scents. These generally include:
Tea rose — A strong scent like that of fresh tea.
Old rose — The classic scent found almost exclusively in pink and red roses.
Musk — A romantic scent that comes from the flower’s stamens.
Myrrh — An aromatic, anise-like scent found in English roses.
Fruity — Fruity notes are often present because the rose is related to apples, apricots, and other fruits.
The scent of peonies often fall into two categories. Some have a very strong floral scent, while others are said to smell like ginger or spices from a kitchen cabinet.
Gardenia flowers give off an intoxicating smell that is pleasing to most people. Their scent is often compared to orange-blossom honey. If you have a room that especially needs a freshening up — fill it with gardenia!
Not all lilies have a scent, but those that do boast a fragrance that is beyond comparison. Orchid lilies and stargazer lilies have an amazing tropical scent.
