Assuming that the plant is no more than 12 inches/30cm tall (and most likely shorter than that), then this is a common garden hyacinth, but one that's been in the ground awhile and has lost its compact growth habit. A photo from farther away would be helpful in this ID.

I first thought we were looking at English or Spanish Bluebells (Hyacinthoides species), but the ovaries (if that's the correct bit I'm talking about) on those flowers are not noticeable, whereas they are noticeable on hyacinths.
