fragrant (stinky?) marigolds

East Helena, MT

Can anyone tell me the name of (and where I can find seeds for) the old-fashioned marigolds that had such a distinct and strong odor? I know some don't care for it but the strongest-smelling ones are also the best at bug-repelling. All the new hybrids are lovely but I miss the smell.
Thanks, Deborah
