There wont be too many who will get 100% on that quiz.
Dahlias and sunflowers have no scent but you have me stumped on the other bit.

In the same vein, a chemical plant - childhood memories of driving through Bridgewater - ye gods, what a stink!

Sorry i forgot to get back to you.
Escallonia resinosa (vindaloo plant), (not to be confused with the little grey Helichrysum italicum serotinum that is commonly known as the curry plant). No point in rubbing the leaves to get the smell as it comes from the dead leaves at the base of the plant and just wafts around.

I like a good vindaloo, the hotter the better as far as I am concerned.
