I never seem able to get enough of the tea rose fragrance of 'Fragrant 
Rose,' one of my very favorite daffodils.  Yet, there are some who are unable 
detect any fragrance at all!
I have had the occasion to have stems of 'Fragrant Rose' on exhibit in public 
displays on several occasions. Because of its breakthrough fragrance, I am in 
the habit of sticking it in people's faces to smell. My observation is that 
most men can detect the fragrance, but many women cannot. 

On the other hand, some of my women daffodil friends tell me that is because 
the men just won't admit that they can't smell it!
