Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Single flowers of a vivid cerise-pink are large and showy, making Vanity one of the most striking Hybrid Musks. The bush is large and open, requiring lots of space unless pruned back to make a compact shrub. Gorgeous in arrangements, Vanity fills a room with its sweet perfume."
