It's hard to imagine flowers and their scents apart, but the truth is many commercial varieties of cut flowers have been hybridized to exclude some of the scent properties. The reason? Having a scent often comes with a genetic predisposition to ethylene sensitivity. Ethylene is a natural gas which acts like a hormone to help regulate scent, but which has also been found to impact vase life.
So with today's innovative hybridization, we get beautiful flowers with up to double the vase life (which is amazing!) but sometimes that process can be at the expense of scent.... well, fortunately for us - not all flowers are affected. A lot of flowers still offer up that glorious scent we're looking for, and Boronia is definitely high up on that list.
