Flowers are one of the most amazing gifts you can give someone. They are not only beautiful, but they also smell incredible. The next time you order flowers for someone include at least one of the below fragrant blooms so they can experience a gift that delights their sense of smell as well as their sense of sight.
Hyacinths are highly fragrant flowers that have an earthy, robust sweet scent. Composed multiple smaller flowers, they bloom in colors of pink, red, purple, white, orange, and blue. The hyacinth’s aroma develops as the buds bloom, starting out as lightly floral and becoming more powerful and heady as it opens. A wonderful choice for anybody who loves sweet aromas, the hyacinth is a fabulous flower that enhances any bouquet.
Freesias grow in various rich colors and have a sweet, fruity scent. A beautiful trumpet-shaped bloom with delicate leaves, freesia is a wonderful way to bring a natural, sweet smell into your home.
Known for its beauty and its heady scent, roses are often the first pick many choose to send because of their lovely fragrance. There are different types of scents roses can have, though, due to their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and age. For example, darker colored roses have a stronger aroma than lighter-colored ones, and a rose’s scent intensifies when the weather is warm and humid. Smelling roses is considered relaxing and restorative as it makes us slow down, breathe deeply, and slowly to enjoy its wonderfully pleasing aromatic notes.
Peonies bloom for a short period of time, but when they do, these lush, gorgeous blooms emit a fresh, sweet fragrance that can fill a room with their lovely scent. Peonies grow in an array of pleasing colors such as pink, white, lavender, and magenta. Pink and white double peonies are the most fragrant while single and red peonies do not have much of a scent.
The lovely, pleasing aroma of the Sweet Pea is one reason it’s a favorite ingredient in soaps, perfumes, and lotions. Sweet and gentle, this a flower that pairs well with other showy blooms like roses and peonies. A small flower with thin, delicate petals, its scent more than makes up for its size. Sweet Peas add a wonderful pop of color and pleasing fragrance to any arrangement.
Lilies come in a range of colors and strength of smells with Starfighter lilies having the strongest scent described as sweet and tropical. Sonata lilies have more of a light, citrusy scent and Rose Lilies, known more for their dramatic look than aroma, offer just a hint of a sweet smell.
The scent of lavender has been admired for centuries and used for its soothing and calming properties. This wonderful herb with dark clusters of purple flowers is a pleasure to look at and to smell.
