Default flower question /observation

why is it that clover flowers are very plain white with a touch of pink and smell HEAVENLY while dandelion flowers are bright yellow and smell so FUNKY?

anyone know where I could get some nice smelling clover flower oil? I think it would make a great perfume

Dandelions don't need insects to cross pollinate. Clover attracts insects, mainly bees, with its sweet smell. They spread the pollen.
