good fragrance

hello,

i am planning on planting up a large pot i've been given this weekend.
its for outside my front door, i'd really like something that has a really strong but pleasant fragrance.
have already got pots of lavender so not that.
don't mind if its plants/flowers/shrub/bush etc.
any ideas please?

ps,its mostly in the shade!

    I assume you mean the fragrance to be long lasting, not just a week or so?

    For a quick hit, try Stargazer lilies, lovely flowers and really powerful scent

    For longer lasting, maybe some of the scented leaved geraniums?

    Every time you brush the leaves you get lemon or some other fragrance

    Certainly for the winter think about a sarcosus (sp?) they have the most divine heady scent.
