Orchids that have Fabulous Scents

Are there any orchid plants that also have a really nice scent to go with their gorgeous flowers?

Hi Francie,

There are several orchids that not only look good but smell good as well. The first is a “chocolate” orchid. It is a type of Oncidium Orchid called Sharry Baby that smells like chocolate.

The next is a Cymbidium Orchid called Golden Elf that smells lemony.

This is an Omcidium Twinkle Fantasy and it has a spicy vanilla scent to it.
