    flower(s)

    Jasmine flower has a sweet smell.
    Jasmine flowers have a sweet smell.

    I believe the second sentence is correct.

    Many thanks.

    Jasmine flowers have a sweet smell.
    Jasmine has a sweet smell.

    Is the second sentence correct without 'flowers'?

    Many thanks.

    Yes.

    We planted jasmine on our lattice fence last year, and this spring it bloomed for the first time.
