Shehechiyanu on scent


There is some debate as to whether one recites Shehechiyanu for a scent which becomes available, such as that of a fresh rose. The general practice is not to recite the blessing.

[This may be because the scent itself is ephemeral, and so one's benefit is less than in the case of food.]

(Mishneh Berurah 225:16)

Have a great day,
