I’ve started getting cut flowers every week for my apartment. I especially look for fragrant selections. I’ve tried carnations, which smell great close-up, but are hard to smell from across the room. I’ve settled on oriental lilies, which have a strong fragrance.
But the last time I was at the grocery store, I saw something I hadn’t noticed before: they sell tuberose flower stems! This is the flower that makes the delicious smelling lei(s) I like so much. I got one.
The scent is not as strong as when you’re wearing the flowers around your neck, but it is still deliciously fragrant. I can smell their sweetness right when I come in my door, and when I sit on the couch. I’m going to call this trial a success
