Can anyone identify this plant please?

United Kingdom Gb

My neighbour called me in to look at a plant she's grown in her greenhouse. She thinks it was a bulb, but remembers nothing else about it! It's quite strongly fragranced, and about 80cm tall, buds are tinged with pink, but the flowers are pure white when fully open. We'd love to know more about it if anyone can help. Leaves are spiky in shape, lots of them. Just two flower stems. I'll try to download photos.
