Here is my best explanation:

'be fragrant' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'special honey extremely likely' is the wordplay.
'special' becomes 's' (common abbreviation as in Special Air Service).
'honey' becomes 'mel' (I've seen this before).
'extremely' means to remove the middle letters.
'likely' with its centre taken out is 'ly'.
's'+'mel'+'ly'='SMELLY'

'to' is the link.
