Why is that?

All flowers smell but our nose doesnt have enough receptors to pick up every smell, correct me if im wrong

Flowers use scent to attract pollinators. Most flowers of plants that rely on animal pollination will have a scent, but it is often undetectable to humans. Our sense of smell is pretty poor compared to lot of other animals.

The flowers that we recognise as having a strong smell are either naturally evolved flowers with strong scent (fairly uncommon), or ones cultivated by humans to promote the pleasant smell.
