Found in Los Angeles as well as North Carolina – wife’s favorite flower, looking for what it is so we can plant it.

    Tea Olive AKA Osmanthus fragrans AKA Sweet Olive. I’m sure there are other nicknames as well.

    Smells like heaven, doesn’t? I have seven in my front yard, and they are a year-round pleasure.

    Actually, your post is highly coincidental for me because I have been researching some Tea Olive perfumes this weekend.

    Perhaps your wife would be interested to know that it is a fairly common ingredient and there are a few fragrances on the market that are predominantly Tea Olive.
