Gloire de Dijon - Tea Noisette - 1850 *** I've noticed that this rose is often the #1 choice of men, including Paul Barden and Rev. Dean Hole. I read once that men tend to be attracted to warmer colors, women cooler (there's also a generational aspect: ex.: from mid-20th century until very recently, bright, hot colors have been widely popular like 'Peace'). With its subtle, but not garish, salmon pink and yellow coloring, as well as extreme beauty of form, its popularity makes sense.
