Default Two Phals and two Oncidiums

Phal 1 with the stripes has a sweet and musky smell, which is especially strong in the morning. It's been in bloom for a month and shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

Phal 2 I unfortunately had to pass up since I'm broke. It seemed to have a weak, unpleasant smell.

Oncidium 1 is pretty ubiquitous in Trader Joe's as I've seen it in nearly every location I've visited. It has a nice floral smell and is on the smaller side for Oncidiums.

Oncidium 2 looked like a Sharry Baby or Heaven Scent. It had a strong floral scent. The pseudobulbs were huge and slightly elongated, but more oblong. It almost looks like a Wildcat-Heaven Scent hybrid? Another one I painfully left at the store.

Sharry Baby was my first thought when I saw it from afar. However it didn't smell like my Sharry Baby, though mine is a 'Red Fantasy' clone. Do other clones have non-chocolate smells? It smelled more floral, and the pseudobulbs were enormous. The flowers are also more fleshy? I'm going to give that TJ's another visit, hopefully it's still there.

Hard to say, for certain - but I have read that some cultivars may have a somewhat different fragrance. The one I had - 'Sweet Fragrance', I think it was - had massive pbulbs, and a somewhat chocolatey, somewhat floral fragrance.

Hi, just posting again to confirm your ID. I've seen extremely similar Oncs to the one in my original post, and I think you were spot on. They looked identical, but with a more chocolately fragrance, leading me to believe their supplier propagates them through seedlings.

The second Phal looks similar to one called Sunset Glow, so may be that or near to relatively speaking. Though I did have a similar looking one, a small plant that someone claimed was called Mediterranean Sunset - although the latter I could never confirm.

Found this link, for reference.
Phalaenopsis Sunset Glow

Not a confirmation of ID, just a lead that you may wish to follow in the future.
