Winter is full of heady scents: anything that’s going to attract the few hardy flying pollinators needs to pack a punch to get noticed, often smelling strongly over a long distance. But you don’t have to go outside to enjoy such delights – there are a number of house plants that will scent your winter.
The smell of citrus flowers starts off innocently, a little unripe and clean. Then comes the afternote, a little cloying and distinctly fetid. It’s a surprising and addictive combination.
