The most fragrant orchid I encountered is the Dendrobium crumenatum, I hate the bloom is only a one-day wonder.
By far the best is Cattleya Angel Heart 'Lynette' which outshines even the most expensive ladies perfumes.
Best fragrance? It is hard for me to pick just one. I have a mini vanda, Ascocentrum Ladda Gold that has a scent like a mans cologne that can make the entire porch fill with it's scent. And I have several floofies that are super sweet scented... But, my favorite (this week lol) is my Encyclia alata. I have had it sitting on my potting bench and as I work with the orchids I get to enjoy it's intoxicatingly sweet scent. It often is the first thing you notice when you walk out back. In fact as a group, I find the few Encyclia (hybrids included) I have all have scents that carry and are very pleasant.
So many wonderfully fragrant cattleyas to choose from - I would not know where to start. haha.. I currently have a Maxillaria tenuifolia in bloom and it has a delicious coconut fragrance. That is a good one too.
