Roja Parfums - Aoud Crystal - Extrait de Parfum
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
Formed around the traditionally Middle Eastern blend of Rose, Saffron and Aoud, this sweet and spicy accord evokes all the exoticism of a culture that holds perfumery dear to its heart. Cushioning this central trilogy bright Citrusy opening - followed by a tart note of Rhubarb - makes way for a creamy Floral heart, before introducing a rich base of Spices, Woods and sensual materials which lend a resonating warmth and complexity. This is the quintessential scent of The Middle East.” - Roja Dove
About CRYSTAL perfumes by Roja Dove
As the equivalent of aoud fragrances, crystal perfumes differ mainly in the manufacturing process. They are produced by a sophisticated process to create light, almost colorless fragrance oils. In molecular distillation, the already distilled fragrance oil is redistilled under lower pressure and temperature to produce nearly colorless oils. The color of the fragrance oil depends on the duration of the distillation. The result of this technique is that there are no intermolecular interactions between the elements, which removes the dark color elements without changing the smell - a technically advanced process.
