I cannot really tell which kind of rose I like the most but, old fashioned roses with strong smell and ramblers are my favourites. The rambler 'Bobby James' climbed up to the balcony in just two seasons after being planted in autumn 2009. The flowers are white and simple, clustered at the top of long stems and, yes, it smells lovely.

'Paul Neyron' (hybrid perpetual)
Both 'Paul Neyron' and 'Polka' have a nice scent and pretty large full flowers, 15 to 17 cm across! They bloom repeatedly but, the first bloom is really the most abundant and spectacular.
'Baron Girod de I'Ain' is another hybrid perpetual rose with long branches. After the first bloom the branches need to be tied to the support almost horizontally; I noticed it produces more side shoots this way.
