Do the leaves of this tree typically have a strong fragrant smell? I purchased an unknown type last summer on super sale for $4 and its now about 5 ft tall but it still hasn't bloomed yet so I have no idea of what kind it is. The leaves are extremely fragrant.
I grew one some time back from seed that I have since removed since it was ugly due to an encroaching shade location but never noticed a smell from it the whole time I had it. This new one is in my front yard and a couple of people walking by have even commented on how good my yard smells. One woman said it was her daily dose of aroma-therapy. It took me some time to pin down the source but its definitely coming from the tree leaves. Is this typical?
The smell is like an antique cabinet or chest that has had sachets stored in it for many years.
