fragrant flowers.

If I'm in the market and smell gardenias, lilies, tuberose, etc. immediately a smile will go across my face and I find myself walking towards the flower section.  There's something intoxicating about the smell of freshly cut flowers.  I took a gardenia home with me a few days ago, and every time I walk by it I'm reminded that spring is right around the corner {although san francisco has had a bit of a warm winter here, a big change from Boston...BUT I miss the snow too}.  Soon the trees will fill up with beautiful cherry blossoms {as seen here} that I can never get enough of.

What's your favorite flower, based on the fragrance only?

  6. I love freesia! I just used some in the bouquet I blogged about below, and it reminded me how great they smell. Similar to roses, but better!

  7. I love the scent of hyacinths. I just bought a bunch at the florists this week and the smell is so fragrant throughout the home! The color is gorgeous as well!

  10. Based on the fragrance only I'd probably have to go with roses.
    Although I have to say, that I too love the smell of herbs (rosemary is my absolute favourite...)
