Bishop's Castle vs Mme Ernest Calvat

Has anyone grown both of these roses? The flowers seem similar though bush growth habit is very different. It seems that the fragrance might be different too? I would love to grow MEC but now wonder if it is not well suited for my SoCal locale?

It seems like BC size can be kept in check without issue but MEC cannot? Seems like MEC has a quartered look while BC is a rosette?

Please help a newby who wants to grow old roses but timid in trying them out!
