what are your favorite scented white or light colored flowers? I have a light yellow brugmansia that has an intoxicating perfume which is so thick that it lingers in certain spots. You can walk in and out of the scent as if it was a solid cloud suspended in the air. These are pollinated by giant nocturnal moths...how perfect for a moon garden!

I like a valerian called Sweet Kathi which is available from Flower Scent Gardens. (The customer comment they include is mine.) This is a perennial. It has pinkish-white flowers with a lovely sweet scent that wafts a very long way, especially when there's a breeze.

I have a danty but vigerous climbing rose called "Darlow's Enigma" It's white with gorgeous yellow stamens and a rich, strong sweet musk scent. I can't recommend it too highly - it even blooms and thrives in partial shade.

Also, just plain old white stock is lovely!
