I revisited this rose. I actually like it a lot, but I have so many yellows in my own garden. At any rate, I decided to smell it, and its somewhere between moderate to strong.... but it was the scent type that struck me. LICORICE. Definitely not the citrus and fruit scents of most yellows

I suspect that the licorice fragrance may be more prominent in the warmer part of the season, and the citrus scent more prominent in the cooler months. In early December, 2016, I observed that both Sparkle and Shine and its parent, Julia Child, growing at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA, had a lovely lemon scent. However, when I smelled Julia Child in the heat of summer, I found that it had a distinct licorice fragrance (no lemon). Early December, 2016, was the first time I had smelled Sparkle and Shine, so I can't be sure. However, the month of your comment about Sparkle and Shine's licorice scent (August) and the fact that Julia Child is a parent leads me to conclude that the fragrance may change from licorice to lemon during the season.
