We love cut flowers above all for filling whole rooms with a sweet scent. There is also a whole family of potted plants, where flowers give off a pleasant scent. However, it is important to remember that the pots should not be placed in small rooms, because the aroma can be too intense and difficult to bear.

They release a scent reminiscent of jasmine. Gardenia blooms in summer and fall. It’s quite demanding in cultivation, needs high air humidity and can handle excess water very badly.
