    Smells are associated with memories. Why is it that so many people love the way flowers smell? To me, I think funerals. I guess my flower smell was poisoned by death, not to it. lol

    Both gardenia and jasmine are white and they smell so good. We have them by our house’s main entrance.

      Wow! You remind me of Gardenia! That was the flower I tried to grew many years ago!
      But sadly, in the end it attracted more bugs than butterflies! 😦

    Frangipani. I’ve never heard this name. But, when I worked in the Philippines we called it “kalachuchi.” It’s a beautiful and fragrant blossom whatever its name. 🙂

      Yes, this flower is famously in tropical countries.
      Many resorts and bungalows like to go for this tree! 🙂
