The Best Smelling Flowers to Freshen Up Your Home

May 14, 2016



Rose petals are a natural home fragrance

More and more people are embracing home fragrance, with many different plugins, candles, scented oils and reed sticks on offer in a wide variety of scents, to suit every taste. As we hit summertime, however, fresh floral scents are a popular choice amongst many looking to make their home inviting to guests, and calming to live in. Rather than spending your money on chemicals and oils to produce these scents, why not embrace the natural fragrances of the flowers themselves? Here we have rounded up the finest smelling flowers around, to help freshen up your home.



The scent of jasmine is often used in aromatherapy for lifting the spirits. It has a very recognisable smell and is often used in many popular perfumes and beauty products as a base scent. With its beautiful cream bloom too, Jasmine can help to bring calm and serenity, perfect for use in bedrooms or living rooms.

Although it bears no flower, the blue-grey foliage offers a distinctive and fresh scent when it is rubbed. Eucalyptus looks great when added to any bright bunch of flowers, to add sophistication and to break up the colours, and can help to add an extra element of ambience to any room it is in.

The beautiful Gardenia flower has a reputation as perhaps being the most fragrant plant at all and is present in many perfumes, including bottles by Chanel! Create a classic fragrance in your home too by adding the striking white flower to your next floral design.

Passion Flower
The Passion Flower is not one for the shy and retiring, boasting a remarkably unusual flower in a bright purple colour, and it is part of the same family of plants as the Passion fruit. This vibrant and zesty flower can bring energy and atmosphere into busy parts of the house, such as the kitchen or is a great way to greet guest in the hallway.

Angels Trumpet
Angels Trumpet flowers can come in a wide variety of colours, from classic white, to summery pinks or tropical oranges. Like the Passion Flower, use this bloom to add character to any vibrant room in your house.
