I doubt I could go beyond Brian Duncan’s ‘Fragrant Rose,’ a recent Wister winner, whom some people
say reveals no fragrance at all to them. 
It does in my garden,and when cut, in my kitchen.

My informal observations on who can detect the fragrance of ‘Fragrant Rose’ are based on a couple years of staffing a booth at the Cincinnati Flower Show. I often stuck a stem of ‘Fragrant Rose’ in a visitor’s face and asked if they could smell the scent. About half the women said they could not while most of the men said they could.
On hearing this, Linda Wallpe said that it was simply the nature of men not to admit that they couldn’t do something!
