The rose known as Triomphe du Luxembourg is incorrect here and elsewhere.  It may be Rhodologue Jules Gravereaux (Tea x HT).

L. Arthur Wyatt was the last editor of the English periodical The Rose, which facilitated an international tracing service for roses no longer in commerce through a regular column named 'Lost and Found'. After The Rose ceased publication in 1969, Wyat continued this tracing work privately....By 1975, Wyatt was offering 136 cultivars...but ill health brought his enterprise to a halt. Most of his records were discarded and the rose collection was lost. It was reassembled in Castle Howard by James Russell, and the efforts of nurseryman Peter Beales saw much of Wyatt's collection returned to commerce...

The rose in commerce in Australia today as the Tea 'Triomphe du Luxembourg', Hardy/Sylvain-Pean, France 1835, is not the original rose....A distinctive feature of this rose [in Australia] is the purplish black colour often evident on the prickles and branches, with the older branches being particularly dark. It is densely armed with prickles that vary in size and can be wide-based or quite fine The foliage is strong and healthy with coppery new leaves that turn dark green with maturity but retain red edges and veining for some time, so that the coarse leaf serrations appear to be picked out in red......Overseas, this striking rose has been equated with 'Rhodologue Jules Gravereaux' (Lowery & Robinson 2006).

Teas...Rhodologue Jules Gravereaux Good, reliable rebloom. Outstanding fragrance. ...robust Tea, which tends to produce many tall basal canes, beginning stout and then branching inti twiggier wood above.
This came to us as Triomphe du Luxembourg, which it was not. It bears a most beautifully formed flower that reminds me of La France, with more substance to the petals, making a blossom that holds extremely well both on the plant and as a cut flower. This is an early Hybrid Tea by parentage.

Cette variété fut commercialisée par Sylvain Péan, mais obtenue par Alexandre hardy, jardinier en Chef des jardins du Luxembourg, son ami et voisin. Les sources de l'époque attribuent bien cette obtention à Hardy, mais assez curieusement, celui-ci n'indique pas, dans son catalogue de la collection du Luxembourg, q'elle est de lui.
