Fresh flowers are one of the best types of gifts to send someone because of their stunning beauty, delicate and intriguing textures, and vibrant colors. In addition to these awesome characteristics, many flowers also have sweet, lovely, and intoxicating smells. Be sure to include some fragrant flowers in the next bouquet you gift to someone. To help you with this, we’ve highlighted the top smelling blossoms for you to send.
Hyacinths are vibrant, beautiful flowers that are also highly fragrant. Described as having a robust, sweet scent, these flowers bloom in dense clusters of pink, red, purple, white, orange, and blue colors. Their scent is so sweet it deters pests and animals from coming near. A wonderful pick-me-up for anybody who loves sweet aromas, the hyacinth is a terrific, fragrant flower that enhances any bouquet.
Freesia flowers grow in a variety of colors and have a sweet, fruity scent. A beautiful trumpet-shaped flower with delicate leaves, freesia 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 you want to be “scent-sual.” There are, however, different types of fragrances roses can have due to their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and age. For example, darker colored roses have a stronger fragrance than lighter-colored ones. Also, the smell of a rose as a bud is different from when the rose is fully opened, and the rose’s fragrance intensifies when the weather is warm and humid. Smelling roses is considered relaxing and restorative as it makes us slow down, breathe deeply, and enjoy their pleasant aromatic notes.
Peonies bloom only for a short period of time, but when they do, these lush, full 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.
The delicate, pleasing aroma of the Sweet Pea is what makes it a favorite of soaps, perfumes, and lotions. Sweet 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 fragrance strengths from barely there to light and pleasant to overwhelmingly fragrant and sweet. 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, citrus-like fragrance that is subtle and delicate. Dramatic Rose Lilies, though, offer only a hint of a scent.
The scent of lavender has been revered for centuries and enjoyed for it’s soothing and calming properties. Fresh cut lavender can last for over a week in water and since it dries well, its aroma can be enjoyed for a long time afterwards.
