Thanks everyone ! The bloom on this one is stiff, kind of clove-like in texture, and it's very fragrant. Smells like an apple that's just been bitten into...lol. I 've noticed the hybrid 'Hartlage wine' doesn't seem to have a fragrance. Seems like one of the usual drawbacks of hybrids is that it loses it's parent plant's scent.
