Which Epiphyllums are fragrant?

I am planning on growing fragrant Epiphyllums all over my place. There are so many hybrids in this group and I don't know which ones are fragrant. Does anyone have a list of those? Thank you!

Mainly not as fragrant as the oxypetalum species.

very few of the large-flowered hybrids aren't fragrant at all; species that are fragrant are: anguliger, crenatum, and chrysocardium. Selinecereus, a close relative, has some very fragrant species, but they get even bigger than oxypetalum!

RE: Which Epiphyllums are fragrant?

I've tried to look into this because I'm starting to get interested in epiphyllums.
In addition to the species plants, apparently at least a few cultivars are also fragrant. So far I've found out cultivars 'Young Nun' and 'Oakleigh Dominator' apparently have enough fragrance to be noteworthy. 'Masada' is also apparently lightly fragrant.
Can anyone comment on any other cultivars?
