Rajanigandha Flowers

Rajanigandha translates to“fragrance of the night.” Aptly named, the flower blooms late at night and presents a strong, sweet smell. Cost-wise, this is an inexpensive addition that needs watering once, maybe twice per week. Locally, it’s a staple buy coming home on summer evenings in Calcutta; there is even a species of tobacco named after this flower.

The smell is very fresh, light but persistent.

Nag Champa Flowers (Champa Ke Phool)

This flower has a very strong and addictive smell and is used as a fragrance for incense, soap, perfume, and essential oils. The word “Nag” actually means snake, the name of the flower possibly coming from the way it resembles the head of one.

Hasnuhana Flower

The Hasnuhana flower has a very heady and sweet smell, strongest at night time. Legend has it that this flower attracts snakes because of its smell. The smell can be so strong that some people complain of 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)

Malati Flowers (Malati Ke Phool)

Malati Flowers (Malati Ke Phool)

To me, this flower smells like home. It is planted mostly on gates or walls of buildings and homes, as it is an ivy-like plant. The flowers smell fragrant and light but you can still catch a waft of the pleasant scent from a distance.
This flower is mostly seen in Bengal in India and other hilly places like Shimla and Kashmir.

5. Kadam Flowers (Kadam Ke Phool)

This flower is large! In spite of the flowers hanging up above so high, the smell of this flower is unmistakable from a distance, especially if you’re walking near a grove.

6. Kewda Flowers Tree

The Kewda flower isn’t that pretty looking, but it probably has the strongest fragrance among all of the ones listed here! Kewda water is used to make “Biryani” and a splash of that water is enough to bring about a distinctive and strong aroma.
