I have little knowledge of

I have little knowledge of orchids and our park has lots,this white one does have some fragrance, is it normal for other orchids to have a fragrance and not be a fragrant orchid?I have found lots last year. yes I was the silly old man on his hands and knees sniffing the plants on the park, is there a better way to find them before they send for the men in the white suits?
