RE: fragrant.......

I love that jasmine. I have made cutting from mine. I have a huge one in a big pot.
I found out one time that if you bring it in the house at night, once it gets really dark, it will start really pouring out the perfume, similar to what cestrum nocturnum (night blooming jasmine) does lol.
I had it in our bathroom and turned off the lights to go to sleep and wow after a few minutes, the smell was really overpowering flowing into the bedroom.
DH said, "Get it out!!" He has asthma and it was messing with his breathing, it was so strong LOL!
