An Olympian in the English Garden


Note: According to the article "A Nose for the Rose" in the Chicago Tribune Sunday Magazine, Michael Marriott , head rosarian of David Austin Roses, can discriminate five English  rose fragrances: myrrh, fruity, musk, old rose, and tea rose.

There's a guy in Great Britain whose nose
Can distinguish the smells of the rose.
His olfactory sense
Comes at no small expense,
But he's worth every scent, I suppose.
