I agree with James, due to my love for Arisaema which have no scent  
even if someone writes
A.candidissimum has fine/light scent in first blooming, I tried to  
capture that scent but couldn't
sniff anything.....
However, walking in the lawn fiftheen days ago near a flowerbed I  
setted two years ago,
the scent of a rich clump of Narcissus Poeticus, (about 200 flowers),  
that of yellow Azalaea Mollis and that of  Wisteria sinensis alba,  
were all around
and even without looking directly to the flowers I was able to "see"  
now all of them have whitered and only Convallaria majalis may spread
a pleasant scent there... waiting for about 60/70 cm.  
tall .
