I feel for the last few weeks some plant smells so sweet after dark. I guess it is a kind of tropic flower or something planted around town, but have not been able to identify which. This is not the first time, but during my stay in Singapore for some years, I sometimes have experienced such nights full of sweet smell around. Do you have any idea about such tropic flowers or names of those? I am very curious.

Yes Maam, there are... but most are in the army training areas and beside the expressways.

Thanks, I am very interested. Will go to the Botanic Gardens later and try to smell Tembusu (some heritage trees seem to exist there!)
