Day 11: Fragrant Rose Advent Calendar
Originally called Hacienda in France, Firefighter was named in honor of those first responders who gave their lives during 9/11. This classic red was hybridized by the Orard brothers in 1998, and came to the states via Edmund's in 2005. The fragrance is beautifully complex. One part rosa centifolia, one part damask, it finishes with a sugar sweet note. Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino captures that sweet final note.
While not the most floriferous bush, it sure is a star. It smells like fruity floral, has a perfect shape, and incredible color. It was bred by Tom Carruth when he worked at Week’s Roses in 2001. Lush Rose Jam Body Spray smells just like it.
