I do not know of any but check Help Me Find Rose and do a search. The one problem with many minis is they have little to no scent. Are you looking for a mini or just a rose that stays small. If you are looking for a small rose, you may want to look a other classes of roses. Remember mini describes the size of the bloom not nessessarly the size of the plant.

I'll look into some of the minis I have, I disagree that minis don't have fragrance. Too bad you never got to walk into Mr. Moore's nursery even just once. Now thorns is a different matter, that's a harder one, you don't mention color at all.

Yes there are some minis that have a scent (I have some in my garden) but there are other classes of roses that have many roses that stay on the small side and have scent as well. I have Golden Buddha and it stays about 3ft and has a very strong scent and it is a Hybrid Brac. Many of the shrub roses stay on the small size and have great strong scent. But being also thornless, as lesdvs9 stated will be the hard part.

Doing a search on help me find roses I believe would still be your best bet in finding what you are looking for or at least close to it. Good luck.

David austin (Heritage rose)is one of the most popular miniature rose without thorns. It grows just three feet tall and have sweet fragrance so i guess this should be what you are looking for...

Heritage is NOT a miniature. It is classed as a Shrub, it gets to over 6' tall here, and the blooms are 3" - 4" wide.

I'm not sure what I have that is a mini and thorn free? Guess I will look a little while I'm outside today. Heritage gets HUGE here ...not a mini!

You might want to consider Marie Pavie or her sport Marie Daly. They aren't minis though, they're polyanthas, but in my experience they stay around the 3 to 4 ft range, are fragrant, with somewhat small blooms and virtually no thorns.
