While photographing crocus yesterday I noticed that the fragrance of Crocus thomasii is very nice. In addition to the saffron/honey fragrance expected from a crocus of the saffron group, there is a sprightly note of hyacinth! This makes it the most deliciously fragrant crocus I know. Temperatures yesterday were well up into the 70s F, and that may have had something to do with the intense fragrance. When I checked the plants later in the day close to sunset when the temperature had dropped a bit, the fragrance was much less intense.
