Alibaba rose

Hello all!
I'm getting some climbing roses for my brothers garden to train along a wall (I've run out of space so had to resort to helping in his garden!) I've found the alibaba rose in my research which sounds delightful. I can't find much about it from actual gardeners though to see if it lives up to the hype of disease free, free flowering and very fragrant. Does anyone have Experience growing it? Thanks!

    Yes, I would recommend it 100%. A lovely rose.

    Thanks pansy face. Do you have any pictures? Also how thorny is it please?

    Not at all thorny. Very pliable stems.

    I think it’s the two flowers in the centre of this vase, but I might be wrong. If not, then it’s a dead ringer for those.
