Pink blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Duchess of Connaught (hybrid tea, Bennett, 1879)
Bred by Henry Bennett (United Kingdom, 1879).
Introduced in Australia by Law, Somner Pty. Ltd. in 1886 as 'Duchess of Connaught'.
Hybrid Tea.  
Pink, salmon-pink center.  Flowers deep silvery pink.  Strong fragrance.  Very large, double (17-25 petals), cupped bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
Bennett always speaks of using the 'President' in his crosses, not 'Adam'. The synonmyity of these two is questionable. It is more probable that Bennett used the rose marketed by Paul in England since 1860 than the much earlier Tea by Adam.
