Bouquet Parfait is well named because the flower clusters form perfect bouquets. The blooms start out white with pale pink edges and gradually turn pinker as the clusters age. The blooms have a pleasant mild scent. The rose is a hybrid musk and therefore can tolerate a bit more shade than most roses.
