Roja fell in love with the perfumes of the Middle East when he was working there: the way the aouds are worn and then sublimated by the scent of Bakhoor.
Sensual, exotic and mysterious - these are the attributes that you would ascribe to an excellently made oud fragrance and that’s exactly what Roja Dove’s Aoud deserves: Sumptuous, exuberant and opulent, an oriental that really deserves its name. A delicious oud with liqueur-like gourmand notes, rich, colorful, diverse and radiant. Hesperides outshine the heart and provide balance while oud together with blossoms utterly beguile the senses. The base offers saffron-kissed leather notes, precious woods, a velvety sweetness and tempting, spicy cinnamon. Roja Dove's Aoud Collection is exquisite, unique and masterfully composed - a fitting tribute to this precious essence.
CARE: Roja Parfum Aouds are very dark, therefore care should be taken not to spray them on, or near, pale clothing.
CARE FOR CRYSTAL PARFUMS: This fragrance is the same as its equivalent Musk Aoud Parfum, formulated using specialist techniques to create colourless oils. It is possible to get a lighter oil by engaging a shorter time for the distillation process.
However, to obtain an almost colourless oil, Molecular Distillation of the oil is undertaken; this is the process used for the Crystal Parfums. It is technically highly sophisticated.
In Molecular Distillation, the finished oil undergoes an additional distillation, this time under reduced pressure. This allows the oil to heat at a very low temperature, which ensures there is no inter-molecular interaction, thus allowing the elements that cause the dark colouration to be removed, without affecting the overall odour.
