Can someone please tell me what kind of rose I have?

This rose bush was planted by the people who used to live in my house and I would like to know the name if possible. The previous owner was an older lady and she said her mother gave it to her, so it has to be an old variety. It has the sweetest smell of any rose I've ever smelled and it's so pretty. The picture doesn't do it justice. Anyway, if someone can tell me what it is, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I think you mean "Joseph's coat". Thanks for the reply, but I don't believe that is what they are. All the blooms, as they start to open from the rose hip, are reddish pink. However, as they open more, they are solid pink in color. They all remain that same shade of pink through full bloom. Also, it is not a climbing rose bush.
Here is a closeup picture. The bush is approximately 4' tall and 2' wide. It doesn't get much taller or wider. The actual rose in full bloom, is approximately 3" across (side to side) in size.
