we have smelled some flowers in our day, and we can confidently say that some flowers give off a far better scent than others. But when you start making a list of the ten most pleasant fragrant flowers, the work gets a little more complicated. Of course, roses smell like light years better than corpses, which have a rotting scent of corpses. But roses versus lilies? Not easy, right now?
So if we are honest, personal preferences play a big role here. But if you think it will stop us from throwing away our very civilized flowers and – of course – in the ranks of the most delicious flowers in the world, we have news for you: It will not!
So without further ado, let’s go straight in! Here are ten flowers with the best scents in the world – most of them you can find in perfume and sometimes in delicious dishes as edible flowers.
Here Are Ten Flowers With The Best Scents In The World
Sadly, the peony season is very short, but geez, it tastes sweet – and so does the scent of seasonal flowers. But like other fragrant flowers, not all peonies are made the same scent. Although they are best known for their distinctive pink blooms, peonies with large white bulbs usually have the richest aroma.
So, if you want to sweeten your kitchen, take a fresh peony when it’s in bloom (generally from April to June). We know we are ready for the peony season to return!
2. Lily Flower
Lilies are some of the most charming and irresistible flowers in the world. And it is not difficult to see the reason. For one, they have very striking, delicious blooms that will definitely attract the eyes of passersby. Second, they are extraordinarily flexible and colorful, making them the perfect flower for every occasion. And finally, they have an exotic, delicious aroma reminiscent of going down from a plane to heaven. What is not liked?
Just be warned: Some lilies don’t have a scent, while others have a smell that can fill an entire room. If you want sharp-smelling varieties, choose lily starfighter or lily orchid. For flowers that are a little firmer but still fragrant, choose Bouq oriental lilies or trumpets.
3. Lily of the Valley
alley lilies (not related to the lilies mentioned above) have many things for them: they are from Bible times, they are favorites in royal marriages, they are said to bring good luck in love, and – thanks to the scent of nostalgia and happiness – they are used in many hand creams and perfumes.
The scent of emitting valley lilies will make you feel like you are lying in the middle of a park on a sunny day, just staring at the clouds without worry in the world. See for yourself if you don’t trust us!
4. Night Flower
or all that you consider minimalist, Jasmine flower is the flower for you. Not only does it have an elegant but unpretentious appearance, it also carries a strong but not too strong scent – think about the little appeal of cream in your home.
Gardenias are not only known for their flamboyant white blooms – they also give off a heavy scent that will remind you of walking through large fields, wildflowers, with sweet piles of sweet thrown on top. For this reason, gardenias tend to be the first choice among scents to add a lot of sweet aroma to their products.
6. Lilac flowers
Where gardenias show off their sweetness, lilac relies on the smoother sweet aroma to convey their intentions. These retained purple flowers give off a simple aroma that is strong enough to cover up other odors, while not too disturbing. Adding some lilacs to your apartment can provide a more relaxed and cooler atmosphere. Trust us, we speak from experience!
However, some lilacs don’t have a scent at all, so do a little research before making a purchase. The most fragrant lilacs tend to be red, pink, white and light blue.
7. Jasmine Flowers
Although jasmine comes from the tropics, there are a number of things about them that give some pleasant sensations in the countryside, in a rural setting. We assume this has something to do with small and charming flowers that have a sense of politeness and virtue about them. Whatever the case, we love them very much!
Jasmines also has one of the most delicious aromas in the natural world. And because of that, they are commonly used in perfume, cosmetics, tea, and aromatherapy.
Fun fact: their scents become more intense at night, especially when there is a full moon!
8. Orange Flowers
We will cut to pursue this one, because you might have guessed that orange flowers give … well, orange scents. And who doesn’t like the scent of oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit soaking into their homes?
9. Lavender flowers
here should be no noise about lavender ranking this high. I mean, go to your local grocery store and just look at the number of crazy products that contain delicious lavender scents. Bath products? Check. Cosmetics? Check. Perfume? Check. Lotion and cream? Check. Tea? Check. That’s right: You can count lavender among the edible flowers on this list. Don’t be surprised if they appear on the next latte menu you are searching for! Lavender is really everywhere you look today … or smell.
You should not be surprised at all that roses get crowns. There is absolutely nothing better than the scent of a fresh rose bouquet, especially when it comes from a very handsome special man in our lives. And roses don’t just smell nice – like lilies, they are one of a handful of edible flowers that taste as good as desserts as the aroma in your living room. But be careful: our products are not recommended for snacks, so we suggest you look at some delicious food grade roses for your baking needs!
