Vis odoris[fontem recensere]

En says the flowers are "strongly fragrant"; but I've grown them, and would say that, compared with flowers of Stephanotis florabunda, they're only "mildly fragrant." (Therefore, I've translated the English as only "Flores sunt fragrantes," omitting an adverb.) Is there any standard measure of the intensity of fragrance, as there is, for example, with the hotness of hot peppers? IacobusAmor 18:07, 2 Februarii 2011 (UTC)
