    Default Trichoglottis geminata (aka T. wenzelii)

    Endemic to the Philippines.
    Overpowering fragrance. I began to feel sick with just this single bloom in a closed room.

    I am sorry for the spelling gaffe in the label.

    I wanted to compare the natural light and artificial light photos. Details are better seen in artificial light but i like the colors in natural light.

    Default Diane,

    not really stinky, but more like strong and musky.

    I said "musky" because musk can be overpowering, yet is a component of many masculine colognes and eau de toilette.
