    really???? I never smelled a dendrobium like that before. Maybe there are cockroach's shit around it, clean your garden.

    Anyway, I'll consider it's a Beauty at a distance!...lol

    Very nice flower. I had shared pictures of my transparens some time back and mine had mild fragrance but did not smell the same what had described.
