Cestrum Nocturnum is also an equally worthy contender.

What a wondreful analysis. The best common point amongst most of them is fragrance. Thanks for sharing these beauties.

Great list everyone. My favorites, though many, has to be the ones I grew up with. For purely nostalgic reasons of course :)
I grew up in Quetta and the scent of wild lavender and honeysuckle are very close to my heart. I also love the scent of maple trees. Plz can anyone tell me if they too can detect the heavy sweet scent of maple trees? I have asked quite a few ppl, and they deny smelling anything, but I know a maple tree is coming by just by the scent of it. Even if I'm driving around in car. It's very strong and sweet. So my list would be:
1: lavender
2: honeysuckle
3: either juniper or maple trees. Can't make up my mind.
OFF TOPIC:
I have a sad little story to share, I hope you don't mind.
The Markers ( of marker pharmaceuticals) were good family friends. I've heard their garden had lavender growing in abundance a long time back. They used to extract pure lavender oil for medicinal purpose. Sadly, I haven't seen their famous botanical garden in its glory days. It's heartbreaking to see such a beautiful garden in ruins now. Their garden is also famous for its boot house, which was built in 1800s by Ardisher marker for his children. It still remains standing amongst the long gone garden near saryab road Quetta.

Once there was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.

I have three raat ki rani plants and my house has a mesmerising fragrance in these stuffy evenings. Strongly recommended.
Another one is Chambali but everyone picks the flowers.
