HT with Similar Fragant as Peter Mayle

Based on HelpMeFind, Peter Mayle has old rose fragrance. I have two Peter Mayle and I think they smell heavenly and beautiful as cut flower. I wonder if you know any HT that have similar fragrant as Peter Mayle. Thanks.

Great picture of Peter Mayle...I have such a hard time with pictures of dark pinks and reds...mine never turn out good. PM does smell wonderful, doesn't he! Of the roses I grow, I think Big Momma probably smells the closest with Grand Dame and Firefighter also being similar. Chrysler Imperial doesn't grow well for me here, so I no longer have it...but, I believe it's a fragrance like Peter Mayle, as well.

Thank you, Pat. It's great to hear that because I just added Firefighter and Chrysler Imperial to my garden this season. I wonder are there any HT that smell even better than Peter Mayle?

RE: HT with Similar Fragant as Peter Mayle

If there is one, it’s Chrysler Imperial…in my opinion, one of the best smelling HTs ever! I also have Mr Lincoln which has that old rose fragrance, but to me Firefighter and CI are more strongly scented. For a more citrusy scent, but very strong and heavenly, you might try Eternal Flame or Pope John Paul II or for a spicy, clove type scent there are Double Delight, Fragrant Cloud and Dolly Parton. Those all are good cut flowers, as well. This forum has several threads on fragrant roses you could search, but those are the HTs that come to mind off hand. If you are interested in OGRs, there are a lot of those with strong old rose fragrances, too, that you could search.
