Hesperis or sweet rocket.
Not quite right for Phlox as that tends to have a fuller and bigger head. I also think Hesperis (Sweet Rocket). If it sends out its scent in the evening, that's what it is.
I love cooking with wine, and sometimes I even add food!

I've just looked them both up & it says sweet rocket have 4 petals and phlox 5 so sweet rocket it is! Thanks everyone. I'm looking forward to smelling them this evening on my way up to put the chickens to bed! :-)
