Evolution: Why enjoy the smell of flowers/perfume?

Flowers/perfume smell nice, but taste awful, and eating them doesn’t have much benefit. So whats the evolutionary benefit to enjoying the smell of flowers/perfume?

We have a very poor sense of smell.

The scent of flowers reminds us of the smell of ripe fruit. You have ancestors who liked to eat ripe fruit. Even to this day, human children like the taste of grapes and cherries, and many adults like sliced apples.
