Indeed the smell is somewhere from pine to balm, and for sure not one of the best "smelly" pelargoniums, but very showy.

This scented geranium weathered the heat this year better than any of my others. I think the scent resembles pinesol more than pine.

I ordered this pelargonium from Richter's herbs in Ontario. Thought it would have a pleasant strong pine scent, however it stinks!! Some people report smelling a pine scent. Not overly attractive either, somewhat spindly growth and leaves even when healthy.
