I love this plant! They are in all their glory right now here in CA. When they're not blooming they don't looks so attractive, though.

Meanie:

Yes, all the species are very fragrant!

My favorite is Brunfelsia americana native to the West Indies. Its flowers are extremely fragrant, especially at night.
