Whiskers is starting to bloom for the first time.
The flower isn't even opened good yet and I can already smell the fragrance, and at 10:00 am.
That plus the fact that it's blooming while still fairly short means this one is probably going to be a favorite.
Just hope it will bloom more often.
Please share comments if you have this one.

Lonnie, here are pictures from last evening.
The plant is about 3' tall with only 3 buds, but the fragrance is awesome.
Reminds me of Charles Grimaldi but stays longer in the daytime.
I just sniffed all that are blooming (9:25 am) and it has the stronger fragrance by far.
I don't know if this is typical or not.

The flowers on yours looks hugh.
Was the fragrance always exceptional, like mine seems to be?

It's been a few years, but I think the fragrance was really good. Wish I had another one. Mine passed away. :(
