Most Fragrant English Roses

Everyone has a different perception of scent but the English Roses listed below are the varieties we consider to be the most fragrant. The English Roses are famous for the diversity and strength of their fragrances, with many varieties having won awards, both nationally and internationally, for their delicious fragrances which can be Old Rose, Tea, fruity, myrrh, musky or almost any mixture of these elements. To make the most of their heady scents, we recommend planting them near to the house or alongside paths and seating areas in the garden.

  1. Emily Brontë

    Emily Brontë

    English Standard Tree Rose
    An exceptionally beautiful rose with distinctive neat, flat blooms. Each bloom is a lovely soft pink, the smaller central petals deepening to rich apricot and surrounding deep-set stamens. The strong Tea scent becomes more Old Rose, with delicious hints of lemon and grapefruit. It forms a bushy shrub with strong, healthy, upright growth. Named for the Brontë Society to celebrate the bicentenary of the novelist’s birth. David Austin, 2018.

    Harlow Carr

    English Standard Tree Rose
    It bears flowers of the most perfect formation – shallow cups of purest mid pink. They flower very freely from early summer until well into the autumn, and have a strong, pure Old Rose fragrance, which has been described as reminiscent of rose-based cosmetics. It has an excellent bushy, upright habit, its full head almost completely clothed in blooms. The young foliage is bronze at first, later becoming green. David Austin, 2004.

    The Mill on the Floss

    English Shrub Rose
