Hehe the name of this flower keeps getting better = )
These grow in the wild here. I didn't know about the smell, next time I see one I'll have to smell it =)

Cracking! I used to grow this and the flowers have a lovely smell of white chocolate when up close. This looks to be the legendary var. longipenis (I kid you not!)
