    It is a zygopetalum.
    I dont know what epithet though. Zygos, for all their beauty are somehow not my favorites.
    I guess subjectivity needs no objective reasoning

    another of the highly hybridised genera of orchids, so getting the name of the hybrid will be pretty difficult...

    anyways, whatever it's name is, it is a really lovely example of this genus. the really wide petals and striking colours are amazing...

    now, does it have a fragrance?

    It actually has a fragrant smell in it, but not all the time. I mean not all day long.
