Fragrant Daphne

Fragrant daphne blooms in early spring giving off a sweet scent.
It is said that Daphne is the name of fairy who was loved by Apolo.
Its fragrance might have been one of the reason why Apolo was so fascinated.

I hear that this flower used to be placed in the lavatory as a deodorant.
