A fresh burst of Grapefruit, Bergamot, and aromatic Artemisia opens this creation, made ultra-fruity by a medley of Blackcurrant, Raspberry, and Strawberry, further sweetened by Orange Blossom, Rose, and Violet, underscored by an earthy blend of Patchouli, Cypriol, Amyris, and Oakmoss, further warmed by spicy Cardamom and precious Saffron, and Aoud, Sandal, Cedar, Casmir, and Guaiac Woods, the whole nestling on a soft, sensual base of Vanilla, Orris, Frankincense, Labdanum, Birch, Gurjum, and Leather, with whispers of Musk.
"Surrounded by indulgence and edible guilty-pleasures whilst working in the Middle East, I noticed that lovers of Aoud were craving something new - something creative - so I began playing with the idea of combining Aoud with gourmand elements." - 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.
