As you browse our selection, you will discover that the potency of aromatic blooms (a.k.a. Mother Nature’s perfume) varies greatly and that flowers come in a range of scents — from mild and intense to spicy and citrusy. To help you discover your perfect scent for your special event, follow our guideline below for inspiration.
Freesia: a sweet-smelling scent with hints of strawberries, citrus and fresh summer fruits.
Sweet pea: true to their name, these blooms smell sweet!
Peonies: not all peonies are fragrant and scent intensity varies depending on the color. White and pink double form peonies tend to be the most aromatic, while red and most single peonies have very little to no scent at all.
Gardenia: as the leader of the fragrant flower pack, gardenia is beloved for its deep, captivating scent. It can be described as having a sweet, heady scent.
Lily: similar to peonies, not all lilies have a scent. Asiatic lilies have no aroma, while Oriental lilies have a noticeable scent. Stargazer lilies are the most powerful, boasting a sensual and slightly spicy scent.
Cymbidium orchids: these elegant blooms give off a light, sophisticated blend of jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and lemons.
Hyacinth: this harbinger of spring quickly fills any space with its intoxicating, sweet scent.
Stephanotis: do not be fooled by the size of these small blooms; they have a lovely, sweet, feminine scent.
Lavender: often used in essential oils to calm and relax the mind and body, lavender has a distinct crisp, herbal scent.
Eucalyptus: this popular filler greenery has a unique minty, pine scent with a touch of honey.
