KSPNW - Oh wow!! I'd love to be ablve to smell Sonia Sykiel!! Swoon!!!
Mustbnuts - It's not surprising to me that you couldn't smell much on The Alnwick Rose...I never smelled much of anything except for the first time. What a shame that you can't smell Jude the Obscure. I had it for one season...but it withered away...but the fragrance was the best I've ever smelled!!
Mike - I really like the fragrance of Julia Child too! You'd probably really like White Licorice too...fabulous rose! What do you think of Chrysler Imperial as a flowering shrub? Lots of flowers??
I love the smell of Acapella. I've had it for about 3 years...so far not the best rose bush...but I keep it for the fragrance...banana candy!!
