What is the name of this fall blooming bulb?

I got these bulbs in a box of mixed bulbs about 20 years ago, but do not know their name. They don't always bloom every year, but they are this year. They are extremely sweet smelling and last quite a long time when cut for a vase. I hope someone can tell me what flower they are. Thanks.
