Article (magazine) (2023)
GC-MS analysis revealed the major scent components of R. foetida and R. foetida var. bicolor were geranyl acetate, 2-phenylethanol, and 2-phenylethyl acetate, each rose with different ratios. The main scent component of R. foetida f. persiana was caryophyllene. The ratio of hydrocarbons was high in R. foetida and its sport cultivars. Characteristic aromatic components of R. foetida and its sport cultivars in this study were the fatty acid derivatives (E, E)- and/or (E, Z)-2,4- decadienal (2,4-DA), (E, E)-2,4-decadienol (2,4-DO), and (Z)-jasmone. In addition, trace amounts of methyl dihydrojasmonate was detected in R. foetida (data not shown). These components are unreported for the plant genus Rosa.
....the unpleasant odor of R. foetida and its sport cultivars is likely caused by the fatty acid derivatives, 2,4-DA and 2,4-DO

Page 38: R. foetida bicolor ('Austrian Copper') Description... Big, single, poppy-like flowers are a dazzling orange-flame with yellow stamens and a dark eye. It occasionally reverts to its yellow parent, R. foetida, and you get yellow and flame flowers on the same bush... This is an important rose because it is the ancestor of all the modern bicoloured Hybrid Teas.
