I'm very humbled to have had this paph awarded with a score of 86 points at our monthly judging yesterday. It was gifted to me as a seedling by the seller near the end of our show and sale five years ago when he asked me if I had Mint Chocolate yet. I said no and he placed this beautiful little plant in my hand and said "You have it now." It's been a reliable bloomer for me but unfortunately this is the first time I was able to take it to judging because Covid shut down our monthly judging sessions for nearly two years. It was worth the wait. Thank you Terry/Forestview Gardens!

Lovely! Is it A bit more yellow than most?

Yes it is. The judges thought at first that it was a hangianum hybrid but they detected a faint malipoense fragrance so that confirmed it. They commented that it got the best of both parents!
