Fragrant Rose Trials
Nantes, France - June 18, 2010

Special Prize

Violette Parfumée (syn. Melody Parfumée, Mélodie Parfumée, Melody Perfume, Zulu Royal) (DORient) is a Hybrid Tea from Dorieux of France. The dark lavender-plum blooms come in large clusters and have a strong Damask, old-rose fragrance.

This rose has won numerous fragrance awards in the past, but not at Nantes. The jury at the 3rd International Trial for Rose Perfume at Nantes eliminated it by 2/100 of a point. To correct this a Special Prize was awarded to it this year.
