 To me, it looks like mackenii or obrienii, or their hybrid. Sadly, many of these species with the tubular flower look alike and I have no key to the taxa to really differentiate them. My obrienii and mackenii and their hybrid vary in color, are flowering now, and they do have a fragrance also. Apparently though, C. suaveolens is supposed to have a nutmeg scent.

I received the pictured plant from Telos in July as Cyrtanthus suavelons but that is described as blooming in spring whereas mine flowered nicely in January.  (It is fragrant).  Can anyone identify it?
