Why do store bought flowers no longer have a scent..
Sold at Costco and grocery stores but they do not have a detectable scent.
Because many of the roses are hybrids and the scent is either bred out or extremely faint.
They've been there too long.
that"s not true
Actually ... it's a little known fact ... but many stores use artificial scents on their flowers, to enhance/prolong the smell.
