Description Roja Parfums Sweetie AoudIngredients
Sweetie Aoud is an oriental fragrance for men and women from Roja Parfums, a British niche perfume brand. Since 2007, Roja Parfums has been offering its customers a brand new concept of luxury and sophistication in perfumery that befits our modern times. It proudly bears the name of its leading personality, one of the greatest fragrance designers in history. Roja Dove is known for using the finest ingredients there are and for his precision and painstaking attention to detail, as well as his personal philosophy of never settling for less than the best. Sweetie Aoud from Roja Parfums offers a highly creative take on an oudh fragrance with elements of fine dining.
The wood of the aquilaria tree, also known as eagle wood, agar wood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma, the most expensive wood in the world, used for centuries to make incense and perfumes, particularly Arabian ones. Roja Dove used this truly royal ingredient, also called the “wood of the Gods”, in a completely new way. “When I lived in the Middle East, surrounded by indulgence and sinfully delicious treats, I noticed that those who love oudh desire something new – something creative. And so I started toying with the idea of combining agar wood with elements of fine dining,” is how Roja Dove describes his inspiration.
His approach gave birth to a truly unusual oudh perfume. Sweetie Aoud from Roja Parfums presents precious and valuable agar wood in an oriental floral composition with strong aspects of balsam and a delicious touch. The aroma of this unique perfume starts with head accords of bergamot and wormwood. The heart brings Provence rose and cistus, followed by a foundation of cardamom, cumin, gurjum, sedge, patchouli, juniper, amyris, incense, labdanum, agar wood, cedar wood, guaiac wood and the notes of confectionery.
Bergamot and wormwood create a fresh backdrop for the delicate rose in the perfume’s heart, sweetened by accords of confectionery and warmed by precious woods and juniper. The exotic notes of gurjum, sedge and patchouli are invigorated by cumin and cardamom, resting on a slightly leathery foundation of incense, cistus and labdanum. The full aroma, originally blending the dominant woody character with aromatic aspects of balsam, fresh and warm spices and rose, is rich, delicate, sweet and warm. Sweetie Aoud from Roja Parfums makes true on the promise of its name, delivering an oudh fragrance with a delicious touch. This lovely, incredibly alluring perfume is another example of the masterful skills of perfumer Roja Dove.
The packaging of Sweetie Aoud from Roja Parfums is wonderful. As is the case with all the Roja Parfums fragrances, the bottle Sweetie Aoud comes in is a masterful, hand-finished piece made in France from the purest glass there is. The gold label is manually embedded in the glass in England and the gorgeous ornate cap, the symbol of Roja Parfums, is hand-decorated with Swarovski crystals. The Roja Parfums Sweetie Aoud bottle is packaged in a beautiful, lavish box.
Sweetie Aoud from Roja Parfums is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year, but it will shine best in the evenings of cold months. This amazing perfume will forever win the hearts of all lovers of highly original oriental fragrances and delight everyone who has long searched for something truly new among oudh perfumes. Sweetie Aoud will envelop its wearer in a captivating, oriental and delicious aroma, and will never fail to arouse admiring attention. Its superior quality and unparalleled luxury in every detail and aspect make Sweetie Aoud from Roja Parfums the perfect gift for someone whom you want to treat to only the best.
