Since I've had a 'few' jasmines over the years I had to check my journal (mercy, how outdated can one's notes be - sheesh...fixed that) to see if I've ever had one of these. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/88790/ Nope not on 'the list.' Anyone with 'first nose' experience? Wondering if any of you can tell me what the scent compares to. Photo 'borrowed' from internet - read: not mine. Author on Wiki shows name as Asit K. Ghosh Thaumaturgist. To my eyes it looks very similar to Night Blooming Jasmine http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/2128/
I had one, only got a few blooms and they didn't have too much smell, but it was a very small plant with just a couple flowers. The flowers are smaller and not as showy as some of the other Cestrums, and they are a little more yellow than what that picture shows (or at least mine were). The pics in the PF entry look more like I remember mine looking like: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/88790/
I'd wait for some other people to chime in on the smell--my plant was small and only had a couple flowers. And I know there are some things that tend to be more fragrant in more humid climates so I'd wait for a second opinion
