Fragrant Plants that Waft in the Breeze

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

A thread titled "Most Fragrants that Waft" began in March of 2000 as a request for a list of fragrant plants that "drift or waft on the air". After reaching the maximum 100 posts, the thread eventually expired due to inactivity. Not surprisingly, after the first post expired, the subject surfaced again in the post "Fragrants that Waft".

The original post, "Most Fragrants that Waft", was saved and was kindly provided by yeona_sky. The following list was compiled by Clare_CA from the original "Most Fragrants that Waft" and the later post "Fragrants that Waft".
