Tuberoses have a very strong small and these flowers are normally used to make wreathes that are placed in coffins here in India..
Each time I smell a tuberose it takes me to funerals I have attended of near and dear ones. These days I do not go for funerals as I just cannot face all that sorrow and sadness that permeates in that atmosphere. I pay a visit to the mourners later offering them whatever support they need.
It is strange that these tuberoses are only used for making wreathes.
Do you have any flowers you associate with funerals?
