The South Australia Rose Socy show has a non-competitive class where members bring their most fragrant rose, and the public are invited to vote for their favourite. I didn't make a list of the dozen or so entered this year (2013), but they included Pope John Paul 1st. On the first day, Crimson Glory was well in the lead, but the flower wasn't young enough to keep its perfume well the second day, and Mr Lincoln overtook it.

I note the same with my Crimson Glory. It smells good the 1st day, then loses its scent the next day. It doesn't hold its scent long like Firefighter, which smells good until the petals fall apart. Crimson Glory smells best in bud form, once opened, the scent lessens.

My favorite rose for 40+ years. The fragrance takes me back to times and people long gone.

How does this red rose compare to Mr Lincoln?? My Mr. Lincoln grows tall, and has
a captivating scent . . . . but not many blooms! Also the 'heads go down' when i cut
them for inside the house!! Would this be a better 'cut rose'?
