    I do love Colmanaras. Lots of times they have a subtle sweet fragrance.

    Those are really interesting shots of that plant! I have the Massai Splash and really like it - hopefully going to bloom one of these days, too.

    Mine didn't have any scent that I noticed last time it bloomed though.

    I had a Col some years back ... that one, unfortunately, had a strong chemical scent

    Yes, it is tremendously dark. Those pictures were taken with a flash; w/o flash it is the deepest darkest red I've seen on an orchid.
