Scent of Madagascar Jasmine

musaboru(Inland Calif.)June 19, 2009

I had the chance recently of sniffing a Madagascar Jasmine, my first time and it was at a Walmart. The smell is a lot like hyacinths, it has that spicy scent with just a hint of Arabian Jasmine. Heavenly scent, but it doesn't beat a Grand Duke of Tuscany jasmine which can bloom year-round here. Just my two cents. :)

I like the smell very much too. The only thing I don't like is it's too much work to make it flower again. But it's a really beautiful plant.
