    Default Chocolate scented orchids

    This question may not be in the right section, but I'm asking anyway! What are some orchids that have a scent of chocolate? Onc. Sharry Baby? Others?

    Well, one might be Oncidium ornithorhynchum, it's my understanding that this species is responsible for the chocolate scent of Sharry Baby. Don't hold me to that though, since I've never seen one in person...
