What Does Orchid Smell Like?

The scent of orchid in perfumery is as varied as the flower itself, often embodying a rich, creamy, and exotic floral aroma ranging from powdery to sweet. 

I find that orchid perfumes add a touch of mystery and sophistication, creating a luxurious and enveloping aura. Orchids bring an element of the exotic to any fragrance.
