Popular Flowers Known For Their Fragrance

Why choose high-fragrance flowers? Beyond their aesthetic appeal, fragrant blooms engage our sense of smell and evoke memories and emotions, creating a sensory experience that speaks directly to the heart. Whether it's the delicate scent of roses, the intoxicating aroma of lilies, or the sweet perfume of freesias, these flowers not only adorn spaces but also infuse them with an essence of love and appreciation, making them an ideal choice to convey gratitude and warmth to the remarkable mothers in our lives.

Gardenias: With their creamy white petals and intoxicating fragrance, gardenias symbolize purity and joy. Their sweet, heady scent fills the air with a sense of tranquility and elegance, making them a perfect choice for Mother's Day. Not only do gardenias represent love and admiration, but their luxurious aroma also serves as a reminder of the beauty and grace that mothers bring into our lives.

Roses: Roses are perhaps the most iconic flowers associated with love and affection, and for good reason. Beyond their stunning appearance, roses boast a diverse range of scents, from the classic sweet fragrance of traditional varieties to the spicy, citrusy notes found in newer cultivars. Roses come in a variety of colors - traditional reds and pinks, as well as yellow, white, coral, lavender, and even dyed varieties. Whether it's a bouquet of velvety red roses or delicate pink roses, the scent of roses has the power to uplift spirits and convey heartfelt emotions, making them an ideal choice for honoring mothers on their special day.

Freesia: Freesias are beloved for their delicate, fresh fragrance that exudes a sense of springtime renewal and happiness. Their subtly sweet aroma with hints of citrus and floral notes makes them a delightful choice for Mother's Day bouquets. Freesias symbolize friendship, thoughtfulness, and innocence, making them a thoughtful gesture to show appreciation for the nurturing and caring nature of mothers.

Eucalyptus: While not technically a flower, eucalyptus leaves are often included in floral arrangements for their refreshing and invigorating scent. With their distinctively clean, minty fragrance, eucalyptus adds a touch of nature's purity to any bouquet. Its aromatic properties are known to promote relaxation and clarity, making it a thoughtful addition to Mother's Day gifts, particularly for mothers who appreciate the calming influence of nature. The Wine Country Blossoms arrangement combines eucalyptus with carnations, button mums, roses, and a succulent plant. 

Hyacinth: Hyacinths are renowned for their rich, sweet fragrance that fills the air with a sense of romance and nostalgia. Their captivating scent, reminiscent of springtime blooms and fresh dew, evokes feelings of joy and gratitude, making them a cherished choice for Mother's Day arrangements or bulb gardens. Whether in shades of pink, purple, or white, hyacinths symbolize sincerity and heartfelt emotion, making them a meaningful gesture to express love and appreciation for mothers.

Lavender: Lavender is celebrated for its calming and soothing aroma, which is often associated with relaxation and tranquility. With its sweet, floral scent and herbal undertones, lavender brings a sense of serenity and peace to any space. As a Mother's Day gift, a bouquet of lavender represents devotion and care, offering mothers a moment of respite and self-care amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Lily of the Valley: Lily of the Valley is prized for its delicate, bell-shaped flowers and enchanting fragrance. With its subtle yet captivating scent, reminiscent of fresh spring mornings, Lily of the Valley symbolizes purity, happiness, and renewed life. Incorporating these fragrant blooms into Mother's Day arrangements conveys appreciation for the timeless beauty and grace that mothers embody, making them feel cherished and loved.

Selecting Flowers Based on Appearance

Of course, scent isn’t the only factor to consider - FromYouFlowers offers a wide variety of Mother’s Day flowers that are as beautiful as they are fragrant. When choosing flowers for your mother, think about what style best suits her taste. Does she have a favorite color or favorite flower? Think about the clothes and jewelry she wears and the way she decorates her home. Whether she loves soft pastels, vibrant hues, or elegant neutrals, incorporating her favorite colors into the floral arrangement will add a personal touch and show that you've put thought into the gift. For example, a mom who loves all things purple will appreciate the Sweet Devotion arrangement filled with lavender roses and lavender stock.  Or, if she gravitates toward lemony golden hues, the Good Morning Sunshine bouquet with yellow roses, yellow lilies, and yellow poms is sure to brighten her home.  

How to choose flowers based on your mother's personality

The best part about sending flowers for a special occasion is that you can choose a floral arrangement or bouquet that perfectly represents the recipient. 

Take into account the recipient's hobbies, interests, and passions. If they love gardening, they may appreciate a bouquet of vibrant, garden-fresh blooms. For nature enthusiasts, consider flowers that evoke the beauty of the outdoors, such as sunflowers or daisies.

Think about the recipient's personal style and taste. Are they traditional, modern, or eclectic? Choose flowers that align with their aesthetic preferences, whether it's classic roses, contemporary orchids, or whimsical wildflowers. A mother with chic, modern style might prefer the monochromatic look of a bunch of Pink Peonies, while someone with more traditional style would enjoy the Beautiful Treasure bouquet with a mix of white hydrangea, lavender roses and white asiatic lilies.  A mother whose style is more bohemian or earthy will love the Luminous Rose bouquet, with coral and peach roses, blue eryngium, and orange and yellow craspedia.

Considering the Meaning of Flowers

Flowers aren’t just pretty - they are also symbols of love, gratitude, friendship, joy, and more. 

Roses are perhaps the most well-known flowers with symbolic meanings. Different colors of roses convey different sentiments:

Sunflowers are bright and cheerful flowers known for their association with positivity, vitality, and warmth. Orchids are exotic and elegant flowers with various symbolic meanings, including beauty, refinement, luxury, strength, endurance, and resilience. Carnations are classic flowers with diverse meanings depending on their color; red carnations symbolize love, admiration, affection, while pink carnations stand for gratitude, appreciation, maternal love. You’re certainly not bound to these interpretations, but maybe they will provide some inspiration!
