    they all seem to have a mild "spicy" fragrance (at least the pure coryos), but I guess that's not strong enough to qualify as a 'real' scent. the mottled-leaf paphs also have a very light "dusty" scent, as far as I can tell.

    The one and only kolo that I had a nice whiff of smelled like a mixture of honey and fruity to me. I actually liked it!
