Indoor Flowers Without A Strong Scent

Share this post...

Indoor flowers give off some of the most captivating smells in the world. However, not everyone is tolerant of strong-smelling flowers, and some are even allergic to strong fragrances. Fortunately, not all flowers have a strong scent and can be just as beautiful.

Many people tend to forget about some of the non-fragrant flower varieties. However, they serve a specific purpose and are just as important as their scented cousins. Here, we explore these under-appreciated beauties and cover the many ways they can help people.

Indoor Flowers Without a Strong Scent

Tulips

Tulips aren’t the first flowers that come to mind when looking for a fragrant bouquet. They have a gentle scent and aren’t overpowering. Tulips fit into any indoor setting, especially if you’re sensitive to certain smells. However, not all tulips are scentless. A few species give off a hint of honey, spicy, and grassy scents. But none of them are very strongly scented.

Poppy Flowers don't smell

Poppies

These paper-thin flowers are a delight to look at and fit perfectly in both indoor and outdoor settings. Poppies have a very light or no scent. This lack of fragrance makes them a popular choice for people sensitive to smell or suffering from allergies. Poppies also come in various colors. So, you can enjoy the beautiful hues without the pungent aroma. Some poppies will smell like vanilla, cocoa, or cherry blossoms, but nothing too intense.

Ranunculus

Ranunculus flowers come in a bold range of colors but have almost no scent to accompany them. These sweet-looking blossoms are popular in corsages, boutonnieres, and bridal bouquets. Their humble fragrance allows them to be carried around and worn for extended periods without worrying about triggering allergies.

Indoor flowers - Amaryllis

Amaryllis

The Amaryllis flower has a subtle scent and often goes hand in hand with Christmas. However, this flower is perfect for any occasion. Amaryllis is an ideal partner to tulips, ranunculus, and proteas for a non-fragrant yet lush arrangement.

Calla Lilies

These dramatic yet graceful flowers are practically free of scent, making them ideal for people who prefer odorless flowers. Calla lilies are elegant and beautiful, but this makes them challenging to mix with other flowers. It’s best to let them shine on their own. You will be proud to display these sophisticated and classic blooms in your home. Their flowers will do the talking rather than their scent, making them perfect indoor flowers.

Asiatic Lilies

Asiatic Lilies

Asiatic lilies offer a great way to give your home a flourish of colorful flowers without an overwhelming scent. This species doesn’t have a strong fragrance but will provide you with various colors all year round. And because they don’t have a strong aroma, they are ideally suited for inside our homes. Asiatic lilies are also perfect as gifts to loved ones with allergies.

When Should You Choose Unscented Indoor Flowers?

Apart from their visual beauty, their floral scent is a common reason people purchase flowering plants. But we can also appreciate non-fragrant flowers now and then, even if we’re tolerant of strong smells. Here are just a few reasons you might use flowers that don’t have a strong odor.

  • Certain places don’t permit scented flowers, such as hospitals or nursing homes. This rule ensures the residents, patients, and staff who may be sensitive to a particular smell aren’t bothered by their presence.
  • The recipient of your gift might suffer from allergies and may have a strong reaction against scented flowers. Some people are susceptible and can get a headache just from the fragrance that flowers produce.
  • Non-scented flowers are beneficial for events that involve holding flowers for extended periods, such as weddings, proms, or graduation. Using unscented flowers will help to make the day a lot more tolerable for those suffering from allergies. Even the loveliest scents can become overwhelming after extended periods.

Why Use Indoor Flowers?

Whether a flower has a scent or not, it brings a serene and calm look that captures our senses. But non-scented flowers also have many uses.

Use Unscented Indoor Flowers For Preventing Allergies

Flowers that have a scent tend to clash with other fragrant flowers. Non-scented indoor flowers are often used in homes to prevent allergies. Some people exposed to flowers with overwhelming fragrances can develop itching, headaches, and appetite loss.

These symptoms often appear during weddings and other events where there are plenty of flowers in the environment. While such allergies may be short-lived, they can surely put a damper on things.

Unscented Indoor Flowers Make Great Gifts for those with Allergies

Who doesn’t want to get flowers? Even those who suffer from allergies still appreciate being given a bouquet or a flowering plant as a gift. However, the safest way to do this is by giving them odorless indoor flowers or those with mild or subtle scents. Also, keep in mind that other people may have skin allergies which fragrant flowers can trigger.
