Rose identification

Posted: 14/06/2016 at 10:47

This most glorious rose bush, I inherited, so I don't know its name?  Can someone kindly identify it for me?  Is it a hybrid?  Is it a tea rose?.  I think its an "old rose" - the bush was planted more than 12 years ago - and a prolific flowerer with a strong & delightful perfume; its a joy, & I can't resist picking a couple of blooms because they introduce a wonderful perfume throughout a room. 

"Thankyou "

Oh ok, thanks for this info.   It's in a separate bed away from the rest of the garden, so I won't propagate it, obviously.  hv never known its name, so thanks for this
