    Paph. hangianum is also fragrant. Supposed to be sweet, honeylike fragrance.

    Enc. bractescens very fragrant
    Enc. rufa had a fresh fragrance
    Enc. phoenicea is known to have a chocolate fragrance
    Den. unicum smells like crayons

    when it comes to fragrant orchids, the list can be very long. The list I posted is small compared to the # of orchids that are fragrant. I didn't even touch on Bulbos, some are nicely fragrant while others are best described by stink over fragrance

    woo hooo!!! Paphs are number 1!!!!

    as a suggestion, you may want to try out some of the Paph hybrids like Lynleigh Koopowitz for ease of culture too... hybrid vigour and all that stuff.

    re Cymbidiums, you may want to limit it to the Chinese Cymbidiums then, they don't need the cool down in winter.

    and Carrie, thumbs up for all those Paphs! I've not heard of Paph American, is it a complex? Also, How bout a couple more

    YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH , Tim, my list seems to be helpful for you too!!!
    I do have a few fragrant, but non of them are paphs. I have two catts, two vandas, two dends... I think that's about it. I also have some baby vandas and few of them are supposed to be fragrant but it will take a while until they bloom. I do have some more comming next week, but they are mostly babies and I don't know yet what will be fragrant.

    This is an awesome list. I think I will compile it into different sections so I can easily sort paphs, cattleya, maxillari, etc... WOW. Nice going folks!!
