What is the difference between "frangrancy" and "fragrance"? The distinction - insofar as any may exist - sounds a lot like that between "resilience" and "resiliency" - in other words, none. In fact, why stop these favourites among American solecisms at only one suffix? Why not go the whole hog to fragranciness & resilienciness? Eh?

My Longman dictionary shows no such word. Why complicate the language with add-ons??

I've only ever heard the word fragrance, never fragrancy

Standard and classical english prose hardly use the word "fragrancy" whille fragrance is used widely.
