Musk, and costly musk-like Ambrette, mingle with Oakmoss, Labdanum, Leather, leather-like Birch, and earthy Patchouli to create a sensual and exotic effect which is softened with a blend of Vanilla and Tonka Bean, warmed with Aoud, Sandal, and other precious Wood Notes, with hints of Ylang Ylang, Rose, and Jasmine which add an unexpected touch of sweetness, the whole enlivened with Bergamot, Lemon, and Nutmeg.
"I created a perfume that combined two of the most legendary materials of all – Musk and Aoud. I wanted to see how far it was possible to push the note of Aoud from its traditional route, and create something totally unexpected." - 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.
