    Here's my Gertrude Jekyll, if that helps - certainly a strong scent (heavenlyimage)

    If it's Gertrude Jekyll GDH then it is an amazing rose, I'm not an owner of one yet but hope to be soon, I hope your SIL is better soon.

    Here is a page of pink roses from David Austin, so you see identifying, even with a photo, is difficult.  Sorry, had a look and all the pink roses that were on that page have gone, don't know how to delete reply.

    Ta Dove. I see others have given on alternatives so superfluous anyway. But I thought I'd give the correction in case anyone interested. I bought 14 roses from there in the winter. All doing very well. I liked their search engine so may be of use to G Deadhead.

    I have no catalogues handy, so please excuse any spelling mistakes I may make. One rose that came to mind was an older one Zepherine Druid. This can be grown as a climber or as a column, it too has a wonderful scent, and is bright pink.. Try to find a picture it may be of help.

    Gertrude Jekyll - you wont be disappointed. A beautiful spicy and strong scent.

    This rose was chosen to make essential oil of roses in the UK.
