Hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis L.) is one of the most beloved ornamental plants with fragrant flowers. As one of the important bulbous plants, hyacinth is used as a cut flower, potted flower, and garden flower. Due to their unique aroma, hyacinth flowers are used in perfumery especially in France whose perfume industry is well-known in the world. In this study, Headspace Solid Phase Micro Extraction (HS-SPME) GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) technique was used for the analysis of volatile compounds of flower samples. A total of 28 volatile compounds were identified in the fresh flowers of hyacinths.
