    Blooms seem to be coming from the new growth (the leaf shoots in the second picture).

    Blooms smell strongly of cinnamon.

    Thanks for your help!

    It's a Lycaste. My guess is Lycaste aromatica.

    Thanks! Looked it up and compared and it looks the same!

    Mystery solved! Don't know where or when I got it, I've just kept it around my Bifrenaria harrisoniae and it's done well!
