Flowers that need special care to keep them looking great as they are worn make up delicate leis. This type of lei lasts a short period of time and should be handled gently, if at all, to avoid bruising the flowers. Delicate leis are often prized for their beauty and their scent. They are often made up of small flowers that are highly scented. For those who love this type, they are well worth the extra care to have the strong, natural scent around the wearer.
Some of these delicate flowers have very strong scents that last a long time. Choose these leis when you find the flowers to be beautiful and you want to be bathed in a strong floral scent all evening.
