Is this the best orchid fragrance?

Something to lift the spirits of gardeners in the freezing North or desiccated West—one of the loveliest orchid scents is Prosthechea radiata. Get a whiff of this beauty next summer at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania or the U.S. Botanic Garden in our nation’s capital. Or grow it yourself outdoors in warm climates.

Thanks for the info. I was looking for a nice plant for my sister-in-law for her birthday. The fragrance of this orchid is an added bonus.
