Three types; Olympiad, Firefighter, Chrysler Imperial.

The one on the left is Firefighter, the one on the right is Olympiad.

Only the nose knows.

When I started planting roses again, I picked Olympiad for my red. Lots of blooms and healthy, but no fragrance.
This year I picked Firefighter based on recommendations here. It seems to doing as well as Olympiad did last year and it has a nice fragrance, so I think it will be my favorite. I had a Chrysler Imperial a long time ago. I don't remember it doing well, but I wanted to give it another shot. I planted a lot of roses in less than ideal spots. Starting over again, fewer roses better spots.

Got my first look at 'Firefighter' and very impressed with the color and the
fragrance, divine! Our local place has several Olympiads and Veteran's
Honor unsold. All the fragrant reds (including Mr Lincoln and Chrysler Imperial)
went fast.
But I do think V.H. has the prettiest buds. Hope you post more pictures of your reds.
