Recently they have developed a lightly fragrant Asiatic Lily. I brought a few but you have to stick your nose in the flower to smell the fragrance. Maybe this year it will be more fragrant as the bulb matures.

Oriental lilies are very fragrant. You can smell them from a very far distance. If you want to smell up a block, plant Oreintal Casa Blanca.

I had to move it to the back of the yard it was too strong for the close viewing and smelling.
