    I am nursing one to health somehow - after getting mine from some grower who rotted every single root on me. Grumps. But it's putting out new growth and roots and I'm EXCITED to grow flowers that look like this and smell like you say!!! :c) It's BEAUTIFUL!

    Default Scent..

    Not really a particular flavor..just imagine smelling the outside of the wrapper of the entire roll..that's pretty close.

    Some people say they smell like Fruit Loops as well..
