Redolence differs from fragrance in two respects:
(1) it refers to a strong fragrance and
(2) it can also refer to a strong figurative smell that is not necessarily pleasant.
An aroma is a particular or distinctive smell, usually pleasant.

Just like any odor, the word redolence can refer to good or bad smells, although it usually refers to the good ones. The redolence of a delicious home-cooked meal is delightful, while the redolence of a locker room after a long, hot soccer practice is much less enjoyable. This noun comes from a related adjective, redolent, which means "emitting an odor" in Old French and comes from the Latin root redolere, "emit a scent."

The moonlight and the redolence of flowers make the garden a romantic spot, mainly and much more conspicuous when your love is by your side! Because everything has different connotation, when we love and be loved is a sort of a magical phenomenon that transcends the inner being and influence the optical way of seeing the out-world! In other word love is intrinsic gift able to alter lives, is so powerful and its ultimate desire is to see and provide everything the best in this world for your love and even the silence if it is the best! Love is not possession but love! Even though you constantly desire this person by your side! Love is a virtue, love is worthy of loving, is part of life!!!
