Which rose best suited for North-east facing house wall

We would like to get a nice potted rose for our entrance area, something that will grow up the wall. The wall is north/east facing, we will use a trellis as support. The rose needs to stay in the pot as the entrance is all paved. I would love to get something that the bees like, something with a strong smell, ideally rosey looking, I don't mind the colour so much, as it's by the entrance it should look nice also when not blooming. If the roses blooms more than once that's a bonus. As we are not great gardeners (yet?) it would need to be a rose that's "easy to handle" and not prone to diseases. Do you have anything in mind?

Potted roses aren't easy to handle.
There aren't many choices that do well in shade.
Not all roses can be trained on a trellis and it needs some experience.
Roses rarely look good when not in season.
Easy roses often aren't fragrant and bee-friendly roses don't look "rosey", although it depends on what do you mean by "rosey".
