Some cyclamen flowers do have a scent - I grow two species of hardy cyclamen in my garden some autumn flowering (Cyclamen hederifolium
) and some spring (Cyclamen coum
): both are fantastically scented. Quite unlike the tiny faded scent you get from the big florists varieties.
The scent itself is beautifully transparent, light floral. A little like lily of the valley, but sweeter and lighter. It isn't obvious - you need to be prepared to crawl about near them to appreciate it, but if you pick a few flowers they can fill a room with scent for a few hours.
I think cyclamen aldehyde is a fair match to it. So far as I am aware there isn't an extract of the cyclamen flowers of any useful kind available to perfumers (though I'd love to be proved wrong on that if anyone knows better).
