Flowers are known for their pretty colors, gorgeous designs and sweet fragrances.

The smell of a flower is like an added gift from its already natural beauty, but, just like their designs, not all of them smell the same. So what ones smell the best?

We explored the deepest depths of the internet to find out what people had to say, infused with our own opinion on the matter.

From TLC Home “10 Best Smelling Flowers” Rose made the top spot.

Rose – Ahh the rose. The most well-known flower in terms of beauty and design, and in the post below you know it means love. So, maybe naturally, it also smells the best. The smell of a rose is very distinct, sweet and an aroma can stand on its own in a flowerbed filled with other blossoms. It certainly has my vote for best smell.

From ShareRanks, a site that ranks everything, the have the Jasmine flower as their top-ranked bud.

Jasmine – Mostly native to tropical and warm temperate regions, the Jasmine flower is known for its smell more than its beauty. According to TheFlowerExpert.com, the pretty, white or yellow flower releases its fragrance at night after the sun goes down and the moon has risen, especially when the moon is in a waxing phase. The website writes that the buds are more fragrant than the flowers. The Jasmine flower is actually from the olive family.

Also making it’s names on lists, Lavender, Gardenia, and Lilac.

Gardenia – It’s the flower from evergreen shrub that grows mostly in the southern hemisphere, in Africa, Australia, and close to water. The white flower’s scent is so potent and sweet, Chanel and Marc Jacobs created perfumes off its scent.

Lilac – The lilac is a popular flower that appears to consists of dozens of tiny little flowers on a little vine. These flowers are great for weddings flowers and are used in parks throughout the U.S. Don’t be surprised when people stop to smell these pretty flowers. Lilac is also a part of the Olive family.

Lavender – The Lavender flower almost looks like a pretty, purple grain of wheat. Its flower is on top of a tall stem and it too makes for a very pretty arrangement. Lavender is native in Eastern Africa, and southern Europe near the Mediterranean. The scent is strong, and is used in potpourri.
