    Rhyncholaelia digbyana, Brassavola nodosa and Dendrobium kingianum are a few. I wonder if you could start this post as a pole? I would be interesting to get a wide opinion.

    Rlc. Haw Yuan Beauty 'Hong', Blc Pink empress, Cattleya labiata, Dendrobium speciosum, by order although I'm waiting for the flowering of: Blc . Sanyung Ruby `Grand Dragon`, Blc Tainan Gold `Golden Oriole`, Blc Mahina Yahiro ' Ulii', Blc Amy Wakasugi Yamanashi, Brassavola nodosa, Ryncholaelia dibyana, Cattleya walkeriana, Cattleya tigrina, Encyclia phoenicea, Encyclia cordigera Pink, Encyclia cordigera White, Encyclia osmantha, Encyclia patens, Encyclia casens chocolate rosé, Encyclia randii, Encyclia oncioides, Stanhopea tigrina, Oncidium sharry baby sweet fragance, Maxillaria tenuifollia. I discard the Zygopetalum monkhouse pastis, the Oncidium twinkle red, the Phalaenopsis sweet memory liodoro, because it smells by sticking the nose to the flowerand what I look for is that they flood with their fragrance a stay regardless of whether they are released at night or day

    I was just going with species but there are a lot of hybrids that qualify. I've just about given up on Pink Empress ever blooming for me. I had 6 but sold 4 and am selling another this weekend.

    Some people say that the La Blc pink empress is a classic that never disappoints, with a fragrance with floral notes combined with notes of nail and a touch of vanilla. But returning to the number one issue in fragrance some say it would be the Stanhopea tigrina others say it is the Oncidium sharry baby sweet fragance, I am very eager to check it

    Here, here - can't stand it. What a curious thing this is - personal taste in smells. One of my friends can't strand Oncidium ornithorynchum , and it does not worry me.

    The strongest good perfume from an orchid I had was Saccolabium (Tuberolabium) quisumbingii . A delightful miniature from the Philippines. My greenhouse is a big one - 35 feet long and 15 feet wide, and when that tiny plant in a 3 inch pot was in flower, it filled the greenhouse with its perfume - drove me mad trying to find which plant it was, the first time it flowered . I lost that plant in my private holocaust two or three years ago, and have not seen it on offer since. My posting of that plant November 2011, under the Tuberoiabium name can be found and see using the search box at the top of this page . It's one you really need on your window sill Chris !

    I'll have to keep an eye out for that Geoff. As long as I don't find the smell offensive It didn't show up when I searched though. All that came up was the post you just made. I wonder if the female nose is more sensitive to the scent of chocolate?
