When my mother grew roses in Massachusetts, I always loved the fragrance of Peace.

I love love love DD too, I have trouble keeping it going down here. I have to keep buying a new one every three to four years. It smells amazing, and it is a 'looker' as well.

I have a bunch of deliciously fragrant roses in my garden: Double Delight, Pope John Paul II, Julio Iglesis, Rock & Roll, Firefighter, Julia Child, and Lasting Love. Good luck finding some you like!

Definitely Sharifa Asma and Towering Rose Magic. The fragrance on these two are to die for!

I've grown Sharifa Asma both in the Chicago area and here in Texas. Always the same fragrance and it will fill the yard!

I just planted Sugar Moon and look forward to smelling it and enjoying its beautiful scent. I wish I could plant Sharifa Asma, but it just has too many petals for my garden which is close to the ocean. I have to stay at or below 45 petals or it just doesn't do well. Thanks for all the sharing!

Jude the Obscure. It is absolutely intoxicating, and unlike any other rose scent, yet it is truly rose-scented, if this makes any sense. I bought mine through Heirloom Roses. My husband, new to gardening, cannot get his nose out of it.

Zephirine Drouhin, Constance Spry and Heritage. Alexander MacKenzie smells like raspberries (really) but it takes a long time to mature.

My favorites are Apricot Nectar, Sutter's Gold, Arthur Bell and then, of course the traditional Gallica Officinalis. I use the petals of all of them for tea's and little open dishes.
I'm going to be looking up the one's I see mentioned above as I don't know most of them. Maybe they go by other names here.

I have many of the fragrant ones mentioned above. I think that Fragrant Plum should be added to the list for its aroma and beauty.

Souvenir de la Malmaison is my most fragrant rose. Tiffany is my favorite hybrid tea, but she is a bit of a diva in my zone 6a garden. Many of the Austin roses are beautiful and fragrant. They can get big. If your part of brooklyn is like the old Norwegian neighborhood where I was born, you may not have room for a big rose.

My most fragrant flower is nicotiana. I start some every year from seed. They look nice with roses if you like a cottage look.
