    Default Another fragrant orchid

    Brassia Joyce Nagata is 75% longissima and 25% gireoudiana. This hybrid is a lot smaller than the giant gireoudaina. Petals are very long and the blooms to me look like water falls. Blooms are very long lasting and fragrant. This is for keeps just for the fragrance.

    The fragrance is a mixture of spicy cinnamon and fruit and I like it very much and that's the only reason I'm keeping it.

    Jason, to me most Brassias smell very spicy cinnamony except for Brassia gireoudiana, which smells very sweet and fruity. Blooms are also very long lasting.
