    Love it, as we walk to our local pub there is an area with about a dozen plants in it, you can be several metres away and still smell it. Gorgeous…

      It is a lovely smell and extra special because you often have to hunt to find out where it is coming from. Flowers that you have to stick your nose in are nice but this one really wafts.
