It’s not just flowers that smell good, these plants have their own natural fragrance!”

【Abstract】In nature, many plants can produce beautiful and fragrant flowers that are charming and delightful. However, some plants can emit fragrance even without blooming. For example, the camphor tree exudes a rich aroma with a balanced intensity, while the lemon tree, belonging to the citrus genus, emits a refreshing scent throughout its entirety, promoting a sense of joy and relaxation.

However, apart from flowers, some plants inherently possess their own fragrance, akin to having a “natural scent.” Even without blooming, these plants can still captivate attention with their appealing aroma.
