Is this Ocvatus Weld?

I think it might be 'Spray Cecile Brunner', theycallmejoe.
"Octavus Weld" and 'Spray Cecile Brunner' share a number of the characteristics you've illustrated here, though "Octavus Weld" has smooth pedicels and 'Spray Cecile Brunner' has glandular ones, and the blooms of 'Spray Cecile Brunner' are smaller.
The fragrance is as you describe and my bush of 'SCB' looks just like your picture.

Ahh. Thanks for that! I did look up Mlle. CB and Jules Thibaud when trying to identify this rose, but I didn't think to look up the spray version. I'm actually delighted at what it is--a super tough, surviving, floriferous, healthy plant with a first class fragrance. But now to get my hands on Octavus Weld!

Which state are you in? Some I can send cuttings to, others not.
