The form looks like there's some equestris in there, the spotting maybe from stuartiana, and leaf mottling is likely from schilleriana.

If it has schilleriana in it (and it looks like it does) than it certainly has the potential to have a fragrance.

How wonderful! Have you checked for a tag somewhere, buried in the pot? You could also explain to the garden center that you found an orchid you feel is special and ask if they might tell you from where they got it so that you might try to find the name of the orchid. Perhaps you will get lucky.
I try to always buy orchids with names but only because I lost a really fantastic noID Dendrobium and, if I had a name for it, I might have been able to find a replacement. I do not want that to happen again.

Thanks for the suggestions Leafmite. Unfortunately they don't know the name (they order in bulk from a third party) and it is repotted with no additional label.

My Phal. Jiaho's Pink Girl has no fragrance. At least I don't think it does. But with allergies, my sniffer doesn't work very well...

Those spots on the lateral sepals makes me think there is some Phal. stuartiana in there as well, which would also contribute to the mottled leaves. Any guess on a NOID will be a guess, but this is sure a beauty! Good find!

I agree, not Jiahoís Pink Girl, Iíve had bad luck with these. My first two were not fragrant, but the one I have now is fragrant, but the scent is not intense and is only present in the mornings and has largely disappeared as the flowers have aged. Looks like your plant is quite the find!
