Unknown pink globular rose

I would like help in identifying this rose bush. I bought an old victorian brick house that had about 11 existing rose bushes. I was told the original owner planted AARS winning roses. I believe the bushes all predate at least 1970, most are from the 1940's to 1960's. I even have a Sparten rose bush. I have been able to identify most of them, but this pink one stumps me. The blooms are medium to dark pink with the inside of the petals a lighter pink. The striking thing about the blooms is that they never fully open, but remain very rounded or globular. The blooms smell wonderful, either damask or old rose. I believe the petal count is 20 or less. The bush is growing under a fairly young tree, so I don't know if this has affected it. It is a pretty tall bush, wanted to grow over 5 feet. I ruled out the obvious Queen Elizabeth, as the scent is so strong, at least to me. Smells like Perfume Delight.

Kind of looks like my Paul Neyron. My first flush of Paul is sometimes hot pink but definitely lighter as the season goes on. Petal count might not be your rose though.
