Help identifying a purple fragrant orchid
Default Help identifying a purple fragrant orchid

Hi all,
I was hoping someone might have an idea what this guy is. It's very fragrant and smells a little like an Easter Lily. I'm relatively new to orchid ID and I would love to be able to label this one
Thanks!

It looks to me like a Zygonisia, a human-made genus with both Aganisia and Zygopetalum in its background. There are quite a few hybrids that look similar, so it's not going to be possible to get an exact name. (A NOID, a very lovely one) For care, these like to be warmer than Zygopetalums. Definitely house or greenhouse. Filtered light (similar light needs to a Phalaeopsis, maybe just a little brighter but not much)
