I have a number of scented lilies here and most of them are very spicy smell to me.....
Regale had a wonderful smell as well as Album
but the best of all of them is LANKON........that smells much different then what I expected to be honest
stronger at night though but really nice..

any favourites out there?

the Trumpets are nice and heavily scented but something about Lankon that smells almost like a real perfume to me.......

Yes, Lankon has a delightful scent and that would be my favourite as well Smiling .
Although of course personally I really need to stick my nose into it to sense it!

Lankon is great but I have a Noid yellow OT that smells like apples.

I am not sure what a NOID is.........or is that just the type of OT Joe

I wish I could bottle Lankon and make some money on that scent......lol
not likely but it does smell great

some lilies are for sure much more heavily scented then others......
I have noticed most just smell when the pollen seeds are opening......the most

trumpets have a very distinct smell of their own.......
very different then the oriental and different again from the OT

Trumpets are on of my favourite lilies because of the size of the flower and also the scent
needed to stake every single one thing year.....they get so heavy with flowers.......

Noid stands for no ID pat. I got it as a bonus but no label.

NOID, Noid, NoID --- you can find these acronyms for "No identification" used with just about all plants, not just lilies. So now you know if you run into it elsewhere.

I want to post that I went out to check the backyard tonight and all you could smell was Lankon...
Even the neighbour asked me my name of the perfume I was wearing..............made me laugh actually
surprised that Lankon has such a smell when they are trumpets in bloom all over the place back there too but seldom notice them as much at night
think this must be a species thing......for scent in the late evenings or early morning

The scent is amazing,it reminds me of those solid perfumes my mother got me from Avon when I was a child.
I don't remember the name of the scent by the smell is the same.
If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

all of my lilies do not bother my allergies but come to the orientals and I am stuffed up and miserable......
not sure why that is......
I have just started having issues with them when I bought a pot of stargazers indoors at Easter

the trumpets are fine and OT are fine but not the oriental.......odd really

I showed a friend my Lankon lilies that are still blooming, wow long blooming period for them. I am surprised about that......
but she could not get over the nice smell...........

I seen they are advertising a scent by Glade that is made with the wild lilies that grow out in Western Canada in the mountains. Not sure of the lily though

Regale Album has a nice scent for sure too..

I take an allergy pill and can get out to see some of the Orientals
this is my first year for developing an allergy to them..
