    Hiya Ceri.

    It's nothing to look at, a straggly small lilac flowered plant, BUT Night Scented Stock smells lovely. Sew seeds directly into well prepared soil near where you sit etc. This time of year is ideal.

    10 week stocks will also have scent. Plants are currently available in garden centres. Its a bit too late to grow from seed.

    Yes, I agree with KEF, Night Scented Stocks are wonderful, as are Nicotiana alata Grandiflora (you might still find a few plants in garden centres and nurseries if you hurry).

    Rather hackneyed, but white sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritima) always works,

    if planted in bulk. There is a crown of them in the tree bed in front of my house, and

    every passer-by knees to feel its scent.

    Purple (not blue) and yellow pansies have a very pleasant, strong smell.

    I haven´t tried it yet (but I will!), anyway Zaluzianskiya (night phlox) is renowned 

    for being intoxicatingly perfumed.
