Summer is finally here, and it’s time to bust out the shades and indulge in a bit of nature. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and flowers are in full bloom, their fresh scent wafting through the air. We are more aware of all the beauty that grows around us because it becomes more prominent during this time. We are also exposed to the various fragrances during our multiple hikes and strolls.

Flowers cleverly have unique scents that attract different animals and insects that will help pollinate them. While this is extremely beneficial for the flowers themselves and the continuation of their species, it is also noteworthy that keeping fragrant flowers at home could be a very pleasant experience for you. The soothing scents can help relieve stress and ease tension while lightening the mood and create a more positive atmosphere. The top five most fragrant flowers cannot exclude the following:

1. Gardenia

This pretty flower with its soft innocent white petals give off a unique heavy scent that can be recognised indoors and out. It is said that the scent is even more powerful when it rains.

2. Jasmine

Jasmines are undoubtedly one of the most popular fragrant flowers with its exotic smell and lingering beauty. Its scent is used time and time again in multiple perfumes and commercial beauty products.

3. Rose

These elegant flowers have earned its world-known symbol of beauty. They give off a sweet, aromatic smell loved by many.

4. Peony

Not all peonies have a fragrance, but those that have tend to give off a lovely fresh smell that reminds you of spring and new beginnings!

5. Lily

Like peonies, not all lilies have a smell, but try a smell test and you will easily find that this lovely flower can brighten up the entire room with its sweet scent.
