The wonderful fragrance of flowers not only smells great, but it serves a very practical purpose for the plant. Animals and insects are attracted to the fragrance of the flowers. This increases the chance of pollination! As the creatures are drawn to the plant’s fragrance, they may rub some of the pollen free of the stamens, so that it may reach the pistil and fertilize the plant’s eggs.
As far as my research indicates, yes, all flowers have a scent. However, many of the scents are not particularly pleasing to us. Many flowers give off the odor of rotting flesh. This attracts flies and other scavenging creatures, who may then pollinate the flowers.
