Does it need to grow in the house or are you talking about hanging bunches of dried (or fresh) herbage about?
Smell and taste are very subjective judgements. What kind of smell do you want? Do you want some specific type of aroma or just anything strong enough to cover the reek of the cat's tray or the used bong on the coffee table?

Try Winter flowering Honeysuckle. Great for outside or cut flowering sprigs in the winter - will fill the room with scent. Good for bees (outside!!) because it flowers when not much else is!!
Summer Jasmine - beautiful tiny white flowers with a delightful aroma but - plant it in a pot on solid ground. Mine was in the ground and it took over!! Thus the Jungle girl user name!! It can be grown indoors too!
I hope it helps!

Lilac bush, outside, under your opened fine screened window, nice weather only. Could try Orchids for indoors, good luck keeping them alive. Expensive cut flowers.
For winter, not exactly in garden category, but I like the smell of fresh baked bread. Chocolate Chip cookies a good second... Homemade apple pie...
One thing about nice smelling plants... They attract bugs. Even indoors. Keep a nice supply of indoor bug spray.

Smell something good plant to attract their mistakes. Even in the room.
Maintain a good supply of indoor insecticide.

and "Breath deeply", right?
Insecticide is a subdivision of biocide. Guess what? You are a subdivision of "bio".
If you need more poison in your life, insecticides are for you.

We used to grow scented geraniums outside but did not bring them in. They come in a myriad of scents.

Actually they come in myriad scents... there is NEVER "of" after myriad.

myriad |?mir??d| poetic/literary noun 1 a countless or extremely great number : networks connecting a myriad of computers. 2 (chiefly in classical history) a unit of ten thousand. adjective countless or extremely great in number : the myriad lights of the city. ? having countless or very many elements or aspects : the myriad political scene. ORIGIN mid 16th cent. (sense 2 of the noun) : via late Latin from Greek murias, muriad-, from murioi '10,000.' USAGE Myriad is derived from a Greek noun and adjective meaning 'ten thousand'. It was first used in English as a noun in reference to a great but indefinite number. The adjectival sense of 'countless, innumerable' appeared much later. In modern English, use of myriad as a noun and adjective are equally standard and correct, despite the fact that some traditionalists consider the adjective as the only acceptable use of the word.

Hmmm. Wrong again, eh Shelly? 'Atta boy. It's good to know that you are consistent, but you should probably go back to mangling grapevines.
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myriad> In English, the term "myriad" is most commonly used to refer to a large number of an unspecified size. In this way "myriad" can be used as either a noun or an adjective.[1] Thus both "there are myriad people outside" and "there is a myriad of people outside" are correct.

I suggest you get a large plastic cat and kick that around your house.
