I visited my native place Hodal, Distt. Faridabad, Haryana recently where we have a Neem tree. Oh! what lovely scents like that of Chameli, these flowers were spreading all around particularly in the evenings & at night! I had a close look at it's flowers & though small they were so lovely.
Here are details & links from Indiantreepix Database:

neem scent is intoxicating to me and it reminds me of the childhood. not many people know that the flowers of neem have such exotic scent! neem is in full bloom these days in delhi. the other scent in delhi that one experiences is that of lebbek tree flowers.
