If you were to plant only three different fragrant plants in your house, what would you choose and why?

1
Chambeli (the one i have is much more fragrant than motia)
Reason:
Pest free
abundant blooms
No fertilizer needed

2
Gardenia
Reason:
Beautiful bloom
last for some days on plant

3
Datura "Evening Fragrance"
Reason:
Big pure white blooms which glow in twilight
Different kind of fragrance

My choices are:
1. Molsari (Mimusops elengi): uniquely fragrant flowers, a maintenance free tree. Flowers bloom at night but are fragrant through out the day

2. Haar singhaar: nocturnal, with fragrant bloom- The morning lawn is a beautiful sight when you find a carpet of white flowers around the tree

3. Mowgra: everyone's favourite but it is nocturnal :-(

Arif sahab,

Yes I have two Moulsari. The tree itself is beautiful but the flowers are inconspicuous (it belongs to the cheeku family so the flower is similar to the cheeku tree). It is the fragrance that is very unique.

Is this the same tree which you don't like :-( ?
