A native(?) flower, the camia: hedychium coronarium

I have not smelled any other flower as sweet scented as these native flowers. I shot these specimens at Patag, Silay yesterday May 8,2013 with my HS25EXR camera. This camia is alittle differents as it has black stamens.

Note: wikipedia claims that these flowers are originally from the Himalayas!
