A burst of Bergamot, Lemon, and Mandarin opens this creation, which is sweetened by a bouquet of Rose, Jasmine, and creamy Ylang Ylang, where an unusual note of Raspberry Leaves is enlivened by Pink Pepper and Pepper, nestling on a warm base of Oakmoss and Patchouli, Sandalwood, and powdery Orris.
"For me, a perfumer is a poet or a storyteller, who creates the tangible from the intangible – abstract images that strike at our core. To beguile insinuates so much, it is to have a certain type of power over someone and I felt as though with this word I could create a really powerful and complex perfume." - 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.
