Do you smell a fragrance or an odor?
Just like our other senses, it's intersting to learn how our noses interpret smells differently. When I go to my neighbor's front door and brush against her tagetes lemmonii, I'm amazed that she would site such a foul smelling plant at her entrance. In a recent thread, however, I see that many love its smell.
Meanwhile, I thought I had a fragrance free tee olive at my front door until my neighbor across the street commented on the sweet smell drifting over. I put my nose on the flowers until I'm wearing pollen and can barely detect any scent.
I find my galphimia gracilis (thryallis) has a pleasant, but not overwhelming, fragrance yet I rarely see fragrance mentioned as one of its attributes.
What plant fragrances/odors do you smell that differ from the generally accepted perception?
