Not everyone is appreciative of this flowers wonderful fragrance. So here is an idea, if it does not work to have these in the house, try them outside in a covered area. This is my outdoor vase. You get a wonderful scent everytime you walk past. Just make sure the vase does not get direct sunlight. I also put some decorative glass beads in the bottom of the vase to add a little color and also to weight it down, just in case the wind comes up. Judy.
