The very best plants for summer fragrance are Regale lilies and heliotrope Chatsworth Willinglearner. The lilies flower in June and the heliotropes from early July to autumn.
i have more than a score of heliotropes in pots in strategic positions......by the front and side doors,,along pathways, where we sit and elsewhere. The scent...cherry/vanilla ..of these cherry pie plants is fantastic on any warm sunny day. For me, there is no more imtoxicating scent as it wafts everywhere.
I would also add lippia citriodora...lemon verbena...and salvia elegans, the pineapple sage. These two plants release very strong lemon and pineapple scents respectively when touched or brushed against. Nice where we sit.
With these plants you will recline in sublime bliss....your olfactory senses will thank you most profusely next summer
