Roja’s United Arab Emirates Parfum is a rich complex where bergamot and artemisia create a fresh foil for a floral bouquet, further enveloped by blackcurrant buds, where a blend of clove, pink pepper and cumin add their liveliness. The whole is sublimated by the warmth of guaiac, aoud and woody accords before nestling on a soft, sensual base of benzoin, rich frankincense, labdanum, and musk.
“I spent three years working in the Middle East where I became fascinated with the odours I encountered. A luxurioius exoticism married itself in the air, which was rich, complex, and full of volume. In over thirty years of training, I have never come across a culture which held perfume so close to its heart – the ritual of scenting was engrained as part of everyday life. This unsurpassed and cast a spell on me; I fell in love with the perfumes of the Middle East and the people who wore them. I created ‘The Spirit Of The Union’ to capture this devotion, in honour of the nation’s deep-rooted appreciation of perfume. The bottle is adorned with a cap bearing Swarovski Crystals representing the colours of the United Arab Emirates flag.” – ROJA DOVE.

Born and raised in England, Roja Dove was obsessed with fragrance from an early age. As a medical research student at Cambridge, Dove was inspired to change careers by a trip to the Guerlain boutique in Paris. Through persistence, Dove was able to secure a job in Guerlain’s public relations department, where he quickly became a star publicist and an encyclopedic font of fragrance knowledge, eventually achieving the position of Global Ambassador, a title never before offered to a non-Guerlain family member. After twenty years at Guerlain, Dove left to form his own firm, and ultimately to create his own fragrances.
