the fragrant Hasnuhana; queen of the night.
Explanation:
I found a poem which uses this term to refer to a creeper(lata, vel in hindi))as following :
-the fragrant Hasnuhana; queen of the night.-

Definitely its not a hindi name and from the poem it seems that it may be a Bangla(Language of Calcutta, west bengal, India) term.
Anna, your piece of text must be refering to the scent of the flowers of Hasnuhana.

I got some information on this URL, which refers Hasnuhana in following way I am giving you the URL and a section of the poem in which it is refered.
Hope this will help.

All knew the perennial Madhavilata;

the fragrant Hasnuhana; queen of the night.

They gaped when they saw you

running wild on our roof –

Velvet-green, strange, unknown.

We shouted with glee, "It is Punonnoba … Punarnava."
