Try the following roses:
The Alnwick - soft pink, strongly scented, 120cm high
Gentle Hermione - pure pink, scented, 120cm high
Strawberry Hill - rose pink, strongly scented, 120cm high
Scepter'd Isle - soft pink, strongly scented, 120cm high.
I think lavender looks wonderful with roses. The soil requirements are slightly different - you'd want to mulch your roses, keeping them well-fed and moist, but your lavender should be grown in free-draining poorer soil and definitely not waterlogged. However it's possible to have them both in the same bed but treated rather differently.
Enjoy it and let us know how you get on,
