Polianthes tuberosa

Each year when one of my favorite scented bulbs blooms, I extol its virtues
here on the list. We have had many dialogues about fragrant bulb flowers, so
I do not want to be redundant. But I have a dozen scapes of tuberoses in a
vase in the house, and the fragrance is, for me, evocative of late summer,
of the most exotic perfume, and of what it might have smelled like in
Montezuma's palace. They are wonderful!
