Gardenias have pretty ivory white fragrant flowers that fill the air with their perfume.
And with their glossy, evergreen leaves, they even look good in the winter!
They like humid weather (which is perfect for the South) but don’t do well with cold winters, so you may have to grow them in pots and bring them in if you live further North.
I have one growing right outside my front door that fills the whole front garden with its beautiful perfume when it is blooming.
