Help with lily ID, please!

It's my first lily from bulb, unfortunately I forgot to mark last year :) But, it doesn't look like any of the 3 I planted (one of them was Casablanca)

P7064110

I actually don't even know if it's oriental or not, I just assumed it is, because of what I planted, and because of its strong fragrance.

Thanks,

They look like Orienpet Yelloween.

Thank you very much Lila888,

I googled Yelloween, and only in one or two pictures it looked like mine (some difference in petals). Anyway, I didn't even know how orienpets look, so for now my lily goes by the name of Orienpet :)
Maybe I should write to the place I bought them from.. but then they buy it from some other place too..

Thanks for the pictures Lila!
Mine does look a lot like your first picture. In the second pic, that's what I saw online, those slightly curly lower petals confused me. Maybe its second year mine will do the same..

Your pic and my first pic are similar because they were taken the first day the flowers open.

Mine looked the same all 3 or 4 days it was open.
I didn't realize they don't last. My other two oriental lilies quickly became faded, then brown, and dropped their petals.

At least you got a fragrant yellow instead of what you thought you were getting.

I got plain yellow Asiatics with no fragrance, twice, instead of what I was paying for from two different companies from two different big box stores. I'm not buying bulbs from big boxes again!

buyorsell, me too. I got virused lilies from them. :(

I bought mine from online nursery, but they bought it from Europe (and I read complaints about this European supplier on another forum! about other plants).
