Hoya gracilis and Hoya pubicalyx "pink silver"

These are two of the latest Hoyas to flower. I'm sticking my neck out a bit when I say this is "pink silver" because when I planted this Hoya I forgot to put the label in the basket. But looking at other images this appears to be the one. I'm happy to be corrected if anyone begs to differ. The bottom flower is H. gracilis, it is probably not a great specimen as it was on a part of the vine that was starting to wither a little. The rest of the plant is very healthy but no blooms. I've since given it a little prune and I've planted a couple of cuttings from it.

Love the flowers - pink silver certainly looks like it's supposed to, but I'm no expert! Does it smell? I hope the gracilis makes it!
Don't know whether you've discovered Christelle's blog in Italy - she has some lovely pictures of her hoyas.
