Amazon lily with crown

I thought these were sweet scented camia, but they are actually Amazon Lilies, with white flowers and a crown with a subtle greenish tinge. They grow in Australia, Metro Manila and Bago City, Negros Occidental. The plant produces four plowers in a long flower stem or umbel and each flower has six petals.

Amazingly, they are not closely related to the true lily family!
