This is my wife's favourite orchid.
The waxy texture flower has dimensions 12 x 9 cm, the spur is 30cm in length and has a strong nocturne fragrance.
Blooming duration: 36 days.

It's beautiful!
May I ask you where did you get it from?
:) I used to have it before, it was growing and flowering beautifully, but I just hated the smell.
In the end I gave it to someone else.
I've heard that the fragrance it's not the same for all clones, so maybe next time I'll find one that I like?
The spur of yours is amazing. Mine has a much shorter one :)
Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you Dana! :D
Can you describe that smell?
Οurs has both a sweet fragrance and a smell like freshly washed clothes.
It is from Claessen, but I would certainly look to other nurseries too.

It's probably not a common comparison, but I think mine was smelling like styrene ( :) my husband works with polyester resin, so I know the smell)

Your description of the fragrance sounds very good to me.
