Question Mark Breathing fruit tree blossoms

Is breathing a strong lemon blossom scent outside Bruce's window dangerous? Can it make him lethargic? The tree is right next to the window. Keeping it open is the only way to get fresh air in the room but I'll close it and stick with just the ceiling fan to protect him.

I don't think it's a problem if it's a natural scent. The issue is usually with chemical scents.

Natural scents in general are considered to be safe, and that includes things like boiling cinnamon sticks in a pot on the stove to put a pleasant scent in the air.

This next part wasn't part of the original question but I want to mention it to make sure that nobody who's reading this gets the wrong idea. It's NOT safe to use a natural scent that's been concentrated into a form that's much more intense than you would find in nature. I'm talking about essential oils here - they may come from a natural source, but if it comes in a bottle it's obviously not in its original form any more and can be dangerous. There are people out there pushing essential oils for birds but it's not a good idea. If you're lucky or careful you can get away with it, but if you make a mistake it can kill your feathered friends.
