The olfactory receptors in individuals seem to vary on this scent. I have 
never found any tazetta fragrance to be unpleasant, yet I know some people who 
have. My observation is that it is at least partially a gender difference, with 
more women finding some of them unpleasant than men.

The daffodil 'Fragrant Rose' is also perceived differently by different 
people. When I've displayed it in public, most men can detect the slight rosey 
fragrance; many women cannot. My female friends tell me that the men just don't 
want to admit they can't smell it!
