Chocolate Scented Fragrant Flowers

There are fragrant flowers, and there are edible flowers, but what about flowers that smell like something everyone loves to eat? If the notion of chocolate scented flowers surprises you or causes doubt, it shouldn’t: after all, what is chocolate but the product of a tropical plant? No perfumer can replicate the exact fragrance profile of chocolate the way nature can, so consider planting one or more of these chocolate-scented flowering plants in your garden.
