Help me ID this Rose

I recently bought a 2 gallon rose from Target and it was mislabeled. It is not a hybrid tea since it has 2-5 flowers per cane. It stands three feet in the pot therefore it must be a fast grower. The surrounding roses had powderly mildew and some black spot but it was clean and heathy therefore it may have excellent disease resistance. The flowers are going to be large 4-5 inches and are a light pink except medium pink on the outside of first petal. The largest flower's outer petals are starting to curl out at the edge. The form of the flowers make it look like an upright hybrid flower in form. The leaves, old and new, are regular green large oval, 2.5-3 inches long, not as big as fragrant cloud but similar form. No jagged edges on the leaves. The reason I bought the mislabeled rose was the fragrance which is heavenly moderate/strong fruity in bud form. If you bought something like this from target, it may be the same one. Any ideas? Thanks

Hybrid teas can, and frequently do, grow more than one to a stem. 98% of mine do.

Looks mauve/lavender to me. Can you take additional photos for us, please?
