The Best Smelling Flowers to Get From the Florist

Flowers are one of the most amazing gifts you can give to someone. They are beautiful, unique, ephemeral, and smell wondered on top of everything else. The next time you order flowers for someone special, be sure to include some fragrant blooms so they can experience a gift that delights their sense of smell as well as their sense of sight. 

Best-Smelling Flowers


Pink and Purple Hyacinth


Hyacinths are very fragrant and have a strong, sweet scent. Their flowers bloom in a dense cluster and come in a variety of colors like pink, red, purple, white, and blue.  The scent is so sweet that it deters pests and animals drawn to its bright colors. A wonderful pick-me-up for anybody who loves sweet aromas, the hyacinth is a beautiful, stunning flower that can stand alone or enhance any bouquet.


Freesia Flowers


Freesia grow in a variety of colors and have a sweet, fruity scent. A beautiful small flower with delicate leaves, freesia is a wonderful way to bring a natural, sweet smell to any home.


Colorful Roses


There are different types of fragrances roses can have due to their genetic make-up, growing conditions, and age. Darker colored roses, such as red and pink, have a strong, perfumy type of scent most are familiar with. Lighter-colored roses, though, can have a more citrus-like aroma. Smelling roses is considered relaxing and restorative as it makes us take a moment to breathe deeply and slowly and enjoy its wonderfully pleasing aroma.


Pale Pink Peonies


These lush, full blooms emit a fresh, sweet fragrance that can a fill a room with their wonderful aroma. Peonies grow in an array of pleasing colors such as pink, white, lavender, and magenta. Pink and white double peonies tend to be the most fragrant while single peonies have no scent. With over 40 different species of peonies, their scent can range from sweet and fresh to citrusy and spicy, like ginger.


Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea

The pleasant aroma of Sweet Peas is what makes it a favorite in soaps, perfumes, and lotions. With a sweet and gentle fragrant, this flower pairs well with other scented florals. Sweet Peas add a wonderful pop of color and delicate fragrance to any arrangement.


Stargazer Lily


Some varieties of lilies have a scent stronger than any other flower. Starfighter Lilies, for example, have the strongest and boldest scent of all lily varieteis, which perfectly matches its bold magenta coloring. Sonata lilies less strong and have a light, citrusy fragrance, while Rose Lilies, known more for their dramatic look than their scent, have only a hint of a fragrance.


Lavender Flowers


Lavender is a popular herb used in many things from adding to gifts, scented oils, and even cooking with. Their smell has been admired for centuries for its soothing and relaxing properties.
