The smells/flavors are caused by terpenes, which are chemical compounds the flower uses to attract pollinators. It’s genetically encoded in each individual strain which terpenes that plant will produce, so you will find genetically related plants often smell (and taste similar). There are also a finite number of these terpenes, and mj plants can only (probably) produce certain ones, so strains that have no genetic similarity can still have similar aromas.

By the way these compounds are the same ones that make lemons smell lemony, mangoes etc.

I suspect what you are calling “that lemon smell” in certain sativas is actually a mix of a few terpenes.

Burrowing deeper into the nerdhole:

Traits do “bind” in plants and other stuff since genes are the biochemical expression of segments of the DNA that makes up each of the few dozen chromosomes in a cell. So in other words, each chromosome has a lot of genes in it, and usually the whole thing is inherited as a chunk (half from each parent, usually).

What’s interesting is that when Mendel was playing around with his peas, trying to see how traits were inherited from generation to generation, he picked seven different traits to follow (smooth vs wrinkly peas, large vs small, light vs dark, etc). The thing is, he was lucky enough that each of the genes responsible was on a different chromosome, allowing his to “easily” get the cool random patterns he got, from which he deduced the basic system for the whole thing.

Of course, nobody listened until a few decades had passed and the guy was dead.
