“The quintessential scent of the Middle East, Roja Parfums’ classic Aoud pays homage to the traditional practices of a culture that hold scent dear to its heart. Perfumer Roja Dove spent three years in the Middle East working closely with this legendary material to properly understand its complex nature. With this creation, precious Rose de Mai and Saffron create a beautiful foundation for Aoud to take centre stage, whilst a spicy and incredibly sensual base allow its beauty to resonate. It is the greatest compliment ever when Middle Eastern clients spray this Aoud and ask “how do you know our smell?” – ROJA DOVE.
