Stargazers as part of a larger bouquet that I sent to the one I love for a special birthday. The fragrance of the stargazer is quite strong and it didn't take long for the house to be filled with its aromatic smell.

Lovely stargazers! (Stargazers are orientals, by the way -- asiatics don't typically have a scent)
