Camille Pissarro - deep smell of zilch

18 years ago

That work-of-art label said it would have a deep smell of rose and apple. I got back from Melbourne last night to find its first flower had opened. This morning I stuck my nose in it and found a deep smell of nothing, even though it was at its text-book optimum, i.e. 3/4 open and warmed by the sun. Of my meagre collection of 4 supposedly smelly roses,(Heidesommer, The Duke of Edinburgh, Camille Pissarro and The Prince) the only notably fragrant one so far is The Prince. Does anyone know whether The Duke Of Edinburgh and Camille will get smellier in time? They've both produced only one flower each. They're certainly pretty enough.
