Scented flowers

I've been doing lots of research on scented flowers recently, as I'd like to plant more in my garden. I already have lots of fragrant, winter-flowering plants – viburnum, winter honeysuckle, sarcococca etc – but want more scented spring and summer blooms. Anyone got any favourites to suggest?

Plants still in flower?

Daffs out in Dorset, as well as hellebores and spring-flowered Cyclamen coum - and the usual mix of winter shrubs. We've also got the odd rose in bloom, together with Abutilon 'Suntense' and Salvia guaranitica, thanks to only one slightly dip below freezing a couple of weeks before Christmas. Oddly there is no sign of snowdrops yet!

Before last winter, I was paranoid about getting my ginger lilies – especially 'Tara' – through the winter. Then the cold and snow arrived before I had chance to cover the plants. After –14C in January, I thought they'd all be dead.... but they all came back and 'Tara' was better than ever.... Should I cover them this winter? What do you think?
