This one is 
Large clusters of small, button-like, yellow flowers, paling to milk-white. Strong, fruity fragrance. Vigorous, dense, almost thornless growth. GeorgeᅠPaul, 1867.

I got this for my 60th birthday A rose of delicate charm with beautifully formed flowers, which nod gracefully on the stem. When the petals open they expose numerous stamens, providing an almost water lily-like effect. The flowers are a pale glowing pink, shading to palest pink on the outer petals. There is a strong and delicious fragrance with aspects of Old Rose, musk and myrrh. The leaves are a pale greyish green and they stay on until late into the winter.
