Rajanigandha means fragrance of the night, and the flower blooms in the night time and has a strong, sweet smell. This is also a cheap flower to buy that sustains for several days, and is almost a staple buy on way back home during summer evenings in Calcutta.
Indian movies and songs dedicated to this flower 🙂 And even a tobacco is named after this flower.( i know that’s bad)
A fragrant flower that sits deep in our psyche as Bengalis are Shiuli or Shefali or
This is chiefly because the fragrance of this flower is associated with the onset of autumn, a season we equate with festivities (our version of Christmas or the major festival of Bengalis in India–Durga puja–has this flower as the chief mascot). The flower is well-known to wilt very easily.
The smell is very fresh, light but persistent.
This flower is also used in getting yellow as a vegetable dye. Indeed, in my childhood, when I’d go and get these flowers if they happened to crush on my frock, it would leave quite a permanent yellow mark.
And Shiuli is a very common Bengali female name.
2. Nag Champa Flowers (Champa ke phool)
Looks like this and has a sweet, very strong and addictive smell.
The word “Nag” in fact means snake, the name of the flower possibly coming from the way it resembles the head of a snake.
3. Hasnuhana Flower
Speaking of snakes, Hasnuhana has a very heady and sweet smell, strongest at night time. Legend has it that this flower attracts snakes because of its smell.
Some people complain that they get headaches from the smell. Headaches or not, the flower has a strange smell that is sweet, but strange is the key word here.
4. Malati Flowers (Malati ke Phool)
This flower smells home to me. The tree is mostly planted in gates or walls of buildings or homes, as it is an ivy-like plant, and the flowers smell fragrant, light but you can smell home from a distance. So, whenever you’re coming back home or going to somebody’s place, the heavenly smell of these pink and white flowers is likely to greet you on summer evenings.
This flower is mostly seen in Bengal in India and some other hill station like Shimla and Kashmir
5. Kadam Flowers (Kadam ke phool)
This is a big plant, and the flower looks like this:
In spite of the flowers hanging up above so high, the smell of this flower is unmistakable from a distance, especially if you’re passing down this tree.
6. Kewda Flowers Tree
This flower isn’t that pretty looking, but probably has the strongest fragrance among them all….as much as kewda water is used to makeand a splash of that water is enough to bring about a distinctive and strong aroma.
