    Yes, there is a slight fragrance....reminds me of a yellow phal smell. You have to get right up next to the flower to smell it though.

    I thought there might be some fragrance. I always think these smell so nice - even if they are not overly fragrant.

    This is a great orchid. Good purchase Connie....

    I have the 'Ontario' varietal myself, and it does have a great fragrance. Reminded me of the light honeycomb scent so many of these Brassia hybrids have..... I have also seen a 'Halo' varietal of this guy recently, it has a softer colored flower and really cool white rimmed leaves....
