No variety

but a species of its own, although it looks like a smallish agathosmus, and could easily pass as one (I wonder how many we have missed). What we have here and call hyacinthinus has a different cap structure, and a thin, slimy veil on the stem that slowly turns a pale greyish brown, not present in agathosmus.

Considered a variety of H. agathosmos?

I was once handed a mushroom at a foray by a mycologist and I thought I had detected her perfume but instead it was a mushroom identified as this species.
The odor was noticeable at arm’s length.

It was exciting

and it became the 4th known location in Sweden :-)
Strange smell though, and hard to describe – a little bit like agathosmus, but a more sweetish – oily – chemical – kind of smell..

I think

This would be an exciting find
