Another odd scent

As we were planting Cyclamen libanoticum yesterday, my wife and I both
thought that the scent was rather strongly of roofing tar and not, as Chris
Grey-Wilson says, "...a strange scent, which is best described as 'peppery'
(some say 'acetylene') and not particularly pleasant." Neither of us got the
peppery but both got roofing tar, and we frequently disagree on scents. He
was right, though, about the "not particularly pleasant" part.
