Flowers are truly remarkable – not only are they gorgeous, delicate, colorful, unique, and ephemeral, but they also have amazing scents we just can’t get enough of. Not all flowers have strong, pleasing aromas, but those that do have such nice scents they’ve been put in bottles. We prefer to smell them from the original source, though, and created a list of some of the best-smelling flowers to send someone special in your life.
Blooming in dense clusters, Hyacinth flowers have a highly fragrant smell that’s sweet, robust, and earthy. Coming in a range of colors from purple, pink, lavender, and white, they are a favorite of florists and gardeners alike. The Hyacinth’s scent develops as it blossoms becoming more potent and intoxicating.
Freesias have a fruity scent many people compare to fresh strawberries. These delicate multi-colored flowers with their sweet, airy scent have made them one of the world’s most popular flowers. The scent of Freesia is often found in soaps, lotions, shampoos, and perfume. The elegant aroma of Freesia pairs well with other more flashy flowers such peonies and roses. An arrangement containing Freesias is sure to be a sweet and wonderful-smelling surprise for anyone.
With a rich, luxurious fragrance, roses are often the go-to flower for when you’re looking for a great-smelling flower. Roses can have many different scents, though. Dark-colored roses, such as red and pink, have a stronger, more perfumey smell many people are familiar with. Lighter colored roses, however, can have a more citrusy and fruity aroma. Roses have been cherished for centuries and were highly valued in the ancient world for their beautiful and fragrant blooms. The sensual aroma of roses was said to relax and clear the mind.
Not only are Peonies a lush, gorgeous flower that comes in soothing, beautiful colors, but they also have a fresh, sweet aroma that can fill a room. Depending on the variety, some Peonies smell stronger than others and their fragrance can range fro sweet and rosy to citrusy. Typically, the double, white, and pink peonies are the most fragrant.
Another floral with a fragrance often found in lotions and other bath products, Sweet Peas have a delicate, beautiful scent. With paper-thin petals coming in white, pink, and purple colors, the lovely Sweet Pea radiates grace and elegance. Since their scent is not overpowering, Sweet Peas make a great addition to other aromatic blooms.
Lilies are known for being one of the strongest-smelling flowers around. These large, dramatic flowers come in a range of colors and are perfect for any occasion. Depending on the variety of lily determines the strength of its scent. Starfighter lilies ae the most powerfully scented lilies while Sonata lilies have a more moderate, delicate smell.
Lavender is an herb with beautiful clusters of purple flowers that have a soothing, relaxing, and pleasant smell. The scent of lavender has been used for centuries in soaps, perfumes, scented waters, and oils.
An arrangement of different scented flowers is not only a dazzling sight to behold but also a pleasing and intoxicating delight to smell, such as our Peony Paradise bouquet. With roses, lilies, and peonies, the recipient of a gift like this will truly feel special.
