Tanya, you couldn't be more correct about perception when it comes to iris
fragrance. In fact I've been testing out this theory on my daughter and
My 4 year old daughter thinks several irises, including CRIMSON KING smell
like balloons to her! After she said this, I too got a hint of balloon
rubber (latex) smell when I sniffed CK.
I loved the smell of ENGLISH COTTAGE this year and thought it smelled like
grape jelly, but my wife found the stalk I had cut and brought into the
kitchen a bit overpowering. She said that it smelled like southern
magnolias with sugar on them! You can't get much sweeter on the smell
scale than that.:)
Many of the Louisianas I have smelled have either a grapefruit or black
pepper smell to me (note: grapefruit and black pepper smell very much alike
to me anyway).
