Very nice! I remember seeing this once in person and if I remember correctly it had a marshmallow smell?
I could detect no smell however I didn't get really close to the flower.
I think this is Dendrobium schuitemanii. The hairs on the back of the flower are a give away. It has been around mistakenly labeled Cadetia taylori for many years and not too long ago was formally described. It was described after Cadetia was put back in Dendrobium and was never published as Cadetia schuitemanii, so it is not considered a synonym.
Marni, thanks for the ID!
