Fragrance can not appear immediately, and is only around as long as the flower can be pollinated.

If you want to to make 70° alcohol from a 91% base, you have to add 31% of water ( according to the Gay-Lussac tables of dilution).

That is for 100 ml of 91° alcohol, add 31 ml of water.

It is, it's currently cloned by thousands since maybe 2 years. Given the flower (the pics usually don't render well) and the fragrance, it deserves it.

Avoid water on the leaves.
Keep the plant with plenty of fresh air.

I'm not sure it's fungal. Could be a bacteria.

Well… Difficult to tell…

First don't wet the leaves!

A beauty, but I'd be cautious on the ID as a bellina should have a neat citrus/lemon note. If there's none (it may evolve), a violacea has been around in its ancestor gallery. (it's current)

Fungal for me, there's marks of progresses. More air!

I'd cut the offending parts, eventually treat with a systemic. The dead parts are contagious.
