First bloom for me.
At first I thought the flowers were a little odd due to the curling but now I understand that this is what they do. Maybe it will grow on me but wow, what a fabulous fragrance! Smells just like a carnation to me.

Yum. In the past I had the dark colored version that smelled of chocolate so I need another. Lovely bloom.

Very nice! I've always wanted this species but I've never managed to get my hands on one with a decent price...

After reading about the scent of this orchid I decided to find a nice one. I liked the darker blooms. This is what I got. The fragrance is wonderful. It arrived with five spikes. There was damage to the blooms in shipment but maybe you can get an idea from my photos.
