Native Singaporean Orchid notes: Dendrobium Aloifolium
Dendrobium Aloifolium - Used in Oriental 6 (Women) for Team building Perfume workshop
Native to Singapore and Critically Endangered. It was supposed to be extinct. But, On 9 Sep.2010, in a survey carried out along the pipeline between the Upper Peirce and Upper Seletar Reservoirs, two clumps of Dendrobium aloifolium were discovered on the swampy forest floor, among thick leaf litter, under dense canopy cover.
The plant is said to have a vanilla smell (of Npark's website). To us it is way more complex a smell. It's beautiful on its own and in a perfume mix, it's even better.
Luckily it is found over most of southeast Asia and grows in lowland forest from sea level to 500 m and hope it makes a big come back in Singapore soon.
