What makes the charm of a garden in summer? Its colors, its volumes and its generosity of course, but also its fragrances which come to grab us at the bend of a massif. It even happens that we feel a plant before seeing it, that we guess it and that in its wake we start to dream of a distant elsewhere ... Our selection of flowers to go and smell this summer to escape!

Lavender The scent of lavender is one of the most well-known floral scents. Everyone associates childhood memories of holidays, perfumed linen or cologne. Used since Antiquity to perfume baths, lavender is still very sought after by perfumers. It is cultivated throughout France, in the ground or in a planter on the edge of a sunny window.

Honeysuckle Very pretty climbing plant, the honeysuckle is especially cultivated for its very powerful perfume which floods the air in June and in July. But beyond its characteristic odor, honeysuckle is also a climbing plant with very decorative, robust and easy-to-grow foliage. To plant in spring.

The aromatics In the garden as on the terrace, certain aromatics are as interesting for their aromas in cooking as for their perfume. This is for example the case of mint, rosemary, thyme, marjoram and savory. A real olfactory happiness to crumple between his fingers!

Santolina Recognizable by its intoxicating camphor scent, the gray santoline, often nicknamed "little cypress", has magnificent fragrant gray foliage. We even make small scented sachets to slip into cupboards, like lavender. Its yellow flowers do not smell much, even if they are very popular with butterflies! To plant in spring in a light and dry soil.

Roses The scent of roses has inspired poets and writers since time immemorial. But did you know that not all roses have the same scent? Specialists even distinguish five olfactory families! In all cases, garden roses and old roses are much more fragrant than florists' roses, remember to smell before buying a rose!

Clematis The beauty and generosity of clematis would almost make you forget that certain varieties are as interesting for their fragrance as for their flowers. Clematis Armandii Apple Blossom can be recognized, for example, with eyes closed, by its scent of almond and orange blossom. An excellent reason to adopt this climber in your garden to plant a trellis or an arch.


Bakker Very popular with noses, tuberose has been cultivated in Grasse since the 17th century to meet the needs of the perfume industry. Of great sensuality, its smell close to honeysuckle and orange blossom enters for example in the composition of Chanel N ° 5! But let's not forget that this lovely white flower is also a beautiful plant, easy to grow in pots.

Fragrant geraniums Throughout the summer, scented geraniums (Pelargoniums for botanists) scent the air with delicate odors of lemongrass, mint or rose depending on the variety. Some even have citrus scents or peppery, camphorated or surprisingly green notes. In all cases, it is not the flowers that smell but the leaves when they are wrinkled or heated by the sun's rays.

Ornamental sage

Pinterest In pots on a window sill, on the balcony and in the garden, ornamental sage is as easy to cultivate as it is beautiful, generous and colorful. And as if that were not enough, they are also deliciously scented! Besides, bees are not mistaken: this flower is also melliferous!
