    Oncidium ornithorynchum is posted here - the masses of small pink flowers. I am surprised that this should be called fragrant . Smelly, yes, but that is not quite the same thing. I know some orchid growers who won't have it in their collections since they find the small offensive.i would not go that far, but stick at smelly.

    But one man's meat is anothers man's poison.....

    Oncidium ornythorhyncum is most fragrant than Sharry baby sweet fragance. The word you use is highly fragrant and both smell equally delicious vanilla sugar with a touch of chocolate very soft and pleasant.

    Thank you very much Fereydoon. Perhaps you know what can be the most fragrant cattleya?

    Dorsetman, however incredible it may seem never to be fooled by the shape or size of the flower, it smells a lot and delicious.

    Cattleya aurea - you can smell it even before the bud opens. The downside is that it is only open about 10 days.

    Of course... that is only my opinion. Almost all cattleya have great scent.

    Some orchids have no scent. Euanthe sanderiana was used with other orchids to increase the bloom size and 'flatten' it, but as a result most of the large flat vanda hybrids have no scent.

    Default Here is one for consideration I have not seen mentioned

    It is Trichoglottis geminata. This is a first bloom for this plant. It's a real cutie and the fragrance is amazingly sweet and strong. When you open the door of the house its all you can smell.
    Requires very warm to hot conditions but it's a keeper for me! (apologies for quality and rotation of photo courtesy of Mr. Jobs)
