mag-no-lia (mag-nol-ya) ... According to Merriam-Webster dictionary! I did look it up before using it. I do understand people pronounce words different, though.

The magnificent scent of magnolia is so captivating to me and reminds me of the tree next to my bedroom window in the home we lived in when I was a teenager.
