Flowers for parties: Floral flower scents

Some types of flowers have little or no scent. Others, however, have strong fragrances that can fill a dining room, a grand ballroom, or even an outdoor reception area. So it's a good idea to keep scent in mind when planning centerpieces or flowers for any area.

"Whoa, that's strong!"

You don't want flowers to overpower the aromas of the delicious food being served at your event. Equally important, some guests find heavy perfume-like flowers unbearable; or they suffer with itchy or watery eyes.

Restraint is the key to creating a pleasantly scented environment. Here are several common categories of floral scents along with some of the flowers (and specific varieties) most likely to fill the air with their type of fragrance:

Citrus

  • Mimosa (Acacia)
  • Waxflower (Chamelaucium)
  • Eucharis

Sweet/Floral

  • Bouvardia
  • Carnation - especially "Bagatel" (white spray), "Gipsy," and "Candy White"
  • Freesia - especially "Aladin" (yellow), "Blue Moon" (lilac), "Cote D'Azur" (purple), "Golden Wave" (rich yellow), "Oberon" (burnt orange), and "White Wings" (white)
  • Hyacinth
  • Lilac (Syringa)
  • Lily of the valley (Convallaria)
  • Phlox
  • Rose - especially "Extase" (rich purple-red), "Jacaranda" (deep blue-pink), Juliet (soft apricot), and Rosalind (pale pink)
  • Sweet pea

Heavy / Exotic

  • Gardenia
  • Oriental lily - especially "Casablanca" (pure white), "Le Reve" (pale pink), "Stargazer" (white with dark pink stripe), and "Pompeii" (white with yellow stripe)
  • Longiflorum lily
  • Narcissus - especially "Cheerfulness" (double lemon), "Paperwhite" (pure white), "Soleil d'Or" (golden yellow), "Ziva" (pure white)
  • Stephanotis
  • Tuberose (Polianthes)

Oriental lilies come in many beautiful colors; they can anchor floral centerpieces with crisp elegance. Some varieties, however, can leave guests feeling desperate for air. Depending on the size of the room, you may want to use them sparingly.
