The scent of this Plumeria species is almost irresistible. Reminiscent of Gardenia, and extremely strong.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra) | Posted on February 1, 2015 ]

The blooms of Plumeria rubra are extremely fragrant, but interestingly each variety or cultivar has a unique scent. This can range from fruity, to sweet floral, to intense gardenia-like. Occasionally a variety will have a less than pleasant odor, but most Plumeria blooms are delightfully scented. Some of the most fragrant varieties are 'Vera Cruz Rose' (rose-like scent), 'Mary Helen Eggenberger' (smells like sour candy), Makaha Sunn (strong floral fragrance, one of the best!) and Aztec Gold (smells of ripe peaches).
