Is this Queen Elizabeth?

Oh no, another pink rose ID! Can you help? A friend asked me to help her ID this rose that was at her house when she moved in. It is at least 30 years old. The bush is at least 5 feet tall, the flowers are very fragrant. I originally thought it might be Queen Elizabeth, but the flowers are more fragrant than I've experienced with QE, and the buds are not long and slim. Flowers are about 3-3.5" in diameter and the bush blooms all summer. Another possibility I thought of was Mme. Caroline Testout. I have been unsuccessful at rooting a cutting after about a dozen tries. although other roses from her yard have been easy. Thanks for your thoughts!
