    I use to just buy for looks, but I now realize how wonderful a fragrance can be. This orchid certainly qualifies on both counts. AL

    Amazing to know that. Is it the time or the lights that trigger the scent??? Could you find that out by switching off the lights at different times and checking for scent.
