The blue hour comes from a French expression (l'heure bleue) which refers to the hour experienced between the hours of daylight and darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day (also in photography) and because in the summer, this is often when the smell of the flowers is at their strongest.

In Scotland this time of day and the attendant light quality is known as gloaming.
