Reseda odorata: sprouts

Reseda odorata, known in English as "sweet mignonette" and in French as réséda odorant, is an annual native to the Mediterranean. It is grown for its very fragrant but not especially showy greenish flower spikes.

Last week I sowed a few mignonette seeds indoors under lights. Now most of them have sprouted (not sure if the others are laggards or duds). I am very curious to see what they smell like once they reach the flowering stage.
