Hello friends,

First time post! I was touring our local rose garden and came across this beautiful rose with a gorgeous scent. Sadly, it was unmarked and the local Rose Society does not provide a map of this garden. Can you all help?

It probably could be any of a hundred or more roses, but it reminds me of Myriam, which also has a strong fragrance.

It kind of looks like my Quietness.

It's similar to Quietness in coloring, and Quietness also has a strong fragrance, but Quietness blooms in clusters, and there are no clusters visible in Milljame's picture.

Now that my new 'Summer Romance' has opened, I think it looks like it.

Mystery solved, friends! This enigmatic and beautiful rose is called Francis Meilland.

That's great! I love it when a mystery rose gets identified.
