Native Singaporean Orchid notes: Stanhopea Pulla
Stanhopea Pulla - Used in Fresh 1 (Men) for Team building Perfume workshop
With most Stanhopea flowers lasting three days or less, the flowers must attract pollinators very quickly. The male euglossine bees are known to be important pollinators of Stanhopea flowers, collecting fragrances at these flowers over their lifetime and storing them in their hind tibia. Bees in the Euglossini tribe, including Eulaema meriana, are known to pollinate these flowers supposedly because the orchids can deceptively mimic the form of a female and her sex pheromone.
Other main characteristics are that they have delicate fragrance like lemon-lime candy, cool minty, citrus. They are tight at touch and feel like plastic. Most Stanhopea, particularly tricornis have benzyl acetate. It's the same chemical naturally found in Jasmin.
