It was Narcissus tazetta 'Paperwhite' Other names are Narcissus papyraceus
or N. totus albus. At his very moment on the same flowerstalk  there are
fully formed fruit capsules of the flowers in November,  Withered flowers
from December- January and the last buds still opening at the moment. All
together 4 months of flowering.  This species is found wild all around the
méditerranean. The israelis selected numerous cultivars out of the species,
but their flowering habits are quite similar.I hope that is the information
you are looking for. Greetings
