Boscobel has lost scent

My beautiful Boscobel rose has lost its scent. Has anyone else had this happen to their roses?

    My Boscobel has done exactly the same. It smelt beautiful for the first year I had it but the last 2 years, the scent has got weaker & this year seems like hardly any scent at all.

    Sometimes roses have off years.

    I have Boscobel, in it's second year in a pot, and it's been utterly fantastic, one of my favourites. The smell so far has been fabulous...but for reasons recently, for which I can't remember (it's not something I normally do), I cut a couple of blooms as part of a vase display, and within a couple of days they smelt horrible; properly hideous.
