Looking for roses with Francis Dubreuil's fragrance

I knew Francis Dubreuil was prone to disease, and I don't use fungicide, but I wanted to give it a try last year. It caught black spot, PM, and rust, the fragrance was not very intense (a bloom does not perfume an entire room), and it's not a good cut flower (last about 3 days in vase). it's currently about 60% defoliated, although the tiny one foot plant continued to pump out blooms this spring, even sent out 2 suckers 6 inches away (it's own root)! I might give up on FD, but it's sweet fragrance is enchanting to me. Do you know another rose with FD's fragrance (and hopefully with better disease resistance)? Thanks in advance.
