by BenT_Texas: Tahitian Sunset was fabulous and complex, a strong scent of myrrh, rose and jasmine & Acapella and Sugar Moon too, three new roses for me, each with unique and wonderful scent." BenT(8A Dallas TX)
by Carol in Canada: "Radox Bouquet - Chandos Beauty - Betty White - The McCartney Rose - Peter Mayle - Perfume Delight- Memorial Day - Acapella".
by Luxrosa: "for I've smelled thousands of different roses, though I've only grown c. 250 different types.
'Papa Meilland' or William Shakespeare 2000' for the most fragrant red rose. Compte de Chambord' for pink. Westside Road Cream Tea' for white, and R. moschata, for when the bush is in bloom although though the white blossoms are small, the fragrance from hundreds of those dainty blossoms wafts and carries for several yards around the rosebush.
. If I had a walled-in rose courtyard, brick comes to mind, I would plant R. moschata in the center so the entire garden would smell sweetly of Musk Rose.
Two equally fragrant yellow roses: Etoille de Lyon, ( the scent has been described as "delicious" by an author, to me it smells of honeysuckle and Chantilly cream. 'Lemon Spice', smells of lemon zest, cloves and nutmeg, oh yum. Mauve: 'Intrigue' - written by Luxrosa in Gardenweb.
by Christopher in New Jersey: "Interestingly, the roses whose fragrance carries the farthest (i.e. "wafters") tend to be less intensely scented up-close (except, perhaps, for 'R. moschata' and "Secret Garden Musk Climber", which succeed at both). The winners here would be mostly Multiflora-derived (and my handful of Moschata-derived): 'Bubble Bath', 'Clotilde Soupert', "Darlow's Enigma", 'Marie Pavie', 'Mlle Blanche Lafitte', 'Perle d'Or', 'Reverend Seidel', 'Rosa moschata', and "Secret Garden Musk Climber"."
