Jacque,
Sometimes in a Nursery I'll sniff almost every plant trying to find the scent in the air that hit my nostrils with such a delicious fragrance that I have to have it. So there I go sniff, sniff here and sniff, sniff there until I find it. I also seem to always sniff out other wonderful scents as I'm sniffing for the one; and go home with a car load of different scents!!

Sometimes you can follow your nose and it,s ages before you track down THE ONE , quite often it,s such a tiny flower , maybe thats why it has a strong scent so that you can,t miss it .

Beautiful photos Jacque! Yes, we all need to stop & smell the flowers while we can, for they are all too soon just a photo on GoY, lovely to behold, but without a 'scratch & sniff' button, lol!!

Just looking at the photos brings back memories of some of the plants that were with us earlier in the year. The garden has a totally different smell in the Autumn too, I love it.

I am with you there Steve... I suffer dreadfully all through the year, but it does not stop me from sniffing, after taking the pills I cannot smell anything. Tried the old vaseline, does work for a few hours! Who ever heard of gardeners with hay fever, I ask you?

I shall be planting my sweet peas this week (amongst lots of other tasks!) but how could I manage without them? The everlasting ones that haven't got any fragrance are a complete disappointment! Give me a bunch of sweet peas in the house to waft that perfume about! Can't wait!

How beautiful Jacque! I can smell the sweet peas the minute I walk out the door and no perfume is sweeter.

Yes, the most fragrant ones in my garden are the citrus flowers and the Brunfelsia latifolia and the Hedychium coronarium, all very sweet, but the best I think is the lemon flower. I too go sniffing around the garden Jacque.

I'm a confirmed plant-sniffer. My faves are sweet peas in summer - which reminds me I really must get 'Painted Lady' sometime as that's amazingly strong-scented - and Sarcococca in winter. My roses aren't anything special in scent, although the climbing one isn't bad on a hot day.
