Hyacinth: more than just a flower scent
Fresh, spicy, rustic or sweet. The scent palette of the hyacinth is surprisingly versatile. You can generally say that white hyacinths have a light, fresh scent, while blue hyacinths have a sweeter more intense scent. You can really smell the difference when you stand above them. Put the two varieties next to each other and discover the difference for yourself.
- ‘White King’ (light fresh scent)
- ‘Purple Star’ (slightly stronger fresh scent)
- ‘Delft Blue’ (strong floral scent)
