Roja Dove’s Musk Aoud is deeply, carnally suggestive. Combining two of the most legendary notes: Musk and oud, Dove has diverted the oud from its traditional route to create something completely unexpected. Mysterious and sensual, Musk Aoud oscillates between its two opposite poles - and precisely this ambivalence creates its charm and allure. Soft, skin close, intimate musk, enlightened by delicate feminine flowers meets masculine leather, distinctive woods and smoky oud, cushioned by spicy moss. But what really stands out is the current of smoky, oily sweetness running though the fragrance. The tensile weight here suggests centuries of smells packed in one on top of another, finally merging into one suggestive whole. 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.
