No particular scent that I can recall..

It could be H. splendidissima.. I guessed H. punicea since it is the more common species of larger hygrocybe.

The stem for this specimen was not stringy and it didn’t rip or fall apart when I picked them. That’s the only extra info that I can provide.

Any particular smell?

Reminds of H. splendidissima, which smells like honey
