The flower market has to be one of the most memorable people-watching experiences in Kolkata. To get here, it is very near to Howrah Bridge. Sellers are offering huge garlands of flowers here, presumably for pilgrims or temple staff, and the scene is alive with activity for much of the day. I loved the busy banter, the chaos, and the really striking difference between the vividly beautiful flowers and the rather depressing environment. To get here, it is on the right hand side of Howrah bridge (assuming you are coming from the train station) – just walk a few minutes and you will be able to see the market from above. I came here by accidental wandering, but am very pleased about this and would recommend this place to anyone.

you'd think so but the fragrance wasn't that strong at all! maybe it was because it was in such an open area. also, i'm sure they have some fragrance if you sniff them, but this is not possible - as they are to be offerings to god, it would be inappropriate to enjoy them!
