Bergamot counterpoints the sweetness of Jasmine, Rose, and Osmanthus in this creation, enlivened by Pepper and Saffron, underscored by the warmth of Cedar, Amyris, Guaiac, and Aoud Woods, Gurjum, Cypriol, Patchouli, and Vetiver, the whole sublimated by a sensual, leathery base of Labdanum, Ambrette, Ambergris, Castoreum, and Civet, shot through with a highly distinctive and unusual note of Valerian.
Roja Parfums: Majestic Aoud
“I devoted three years to working in The Gulf – understanding and harnessing the mysteries of Aoud. Few perfumers have had the opportunity to explore Aoud in such a personal way. I was fortunate to be introduced to many of the royal households of the Middle East, and became fascinated with the scents that fill their palaces. To create a befitting perfume, the volume of Aoud, and the woods that support it, are enhanced, and mingle with ultra-rare Ambergris, Jasmine, and Osmanthus. The result is a precious scent that leaves a distinctly majestic trail.” – Roja Dove.
