The other 'Matador' x N. jonquilla crosses that I know of are 'Sparkling Tarts', 'Hoopoe' and 'Motmot' by Grant Mitsch and 'Explosion' by Bill Pannill.  Dave may know of others.

Other fragrant daffodils that I enjoy are:

Div. 2     'Fragrant Rose'
           'Arctic Char'
Div. 4     'Independence Day'
Div. 7     'Sweetness'
           'Fertile Crescent'
Div. 8     'Sir Winston Churchill' (heavenly citrus fragrance)
Div. 11    'Mondragon'
