Hybrid Tea created in France by Delbard in 2011 and honoured, due to the intense fragrance, to the Fragonard perfume company, important landmark in the world of the creators of perfumes.

Shrub with glossy foliage, dark green, that does not fear diseases. 80-100 cm tall, usually widens little more than half a metre.

Flowers with pink shades, isolated or in small clusters, that may reach the 20 cm of diametre.

The strong fragrance has as top note (the one perceived initially) the grapefruit, as heart note (that felt after the evaporation of the top note) the apricot and as base note (the last appearing with time when also the heart note disappears) the mango.

Good restart at cut during all the vegetative season.
