Opinions vary as to which flower is more highly scented than another, but this list has been compiled following a survey of several thousand gardeners from twenty countries. In fact the top ten are part of a larger list described in an article which I came across on the Balcony Garden Web site. See if you agree with their ranking.

We love pleasant odors and flowers are the liveliest source of them. So, what are the most fragrant flowers?
On this, we did a small survey asking 3000+ gardeners of more than 20 countries on major social media platforms and noted their opinions. They voted for most fragrant flowers according to them and we short-listed 23 best and arranged them all rank wise here.
