Why this oud fragrance still surprises
With Roja Dove, one should really assume that his creations come across radiant, rich and of the highest elegance. So far, none of his fragrances has disappointed me, even if the price range is known to be beyond good and evil.

Although the subject of oud really no longer lures you out from behind the stove, it is still exciting what the master of exclusivity has made of it. The expectation is in any case huge, although you can guess before the mental nose, where the olfactory journey goes.

As Terra has already described, the color of Aoud is very dark or almost tincture-like. At bright textiles it should better not come when spraying, otherwise there could be visible stains.
Otherwise, the fragrance turns out to be exactly what you could think in principle: a rich Oudling, but very gentle and polished, in addition, with a neat rose note at eye level to the eagle wood.
Just at the beginning additionally streams verbena into the mix, which makes the Eau de Parfum something citrus-fresh and metallic-scratchy. Somehow a small counterpoint, where you wonder whether it seems dispensable or creative.

In the later course, nevertheless, oud and rose form the two main pillars, with dark woody notes and some floral nuances giving a smooth undertone. Otherwise, hardly what of the many other ingredients is perceptible in between.

Aoud goes so already more than ok and has quite its justification, whereby one must weigh that in 2011 such a combination was still relative virgin territory. Today, almost every perfume label has a similarly constructed fragrance in the portfolio - and especially far cheaper. And for the Roja Dove price, one or two eaglewood afficionados could get pure oud oil, albeit in far smaller quantities.

What really surprises me is the relatively manageable longevity and projection. For a Roja Dove fragrance and in this shade, I almost assumed you could fill a large gym with it for days. Slight disappointments are programmed there if necessary, but that should not diminish the quality of the Aouds.

Roja's Aoud
Nothing prepared me for my first Roja fragrance in my collection,the Aoud Crystal Perfume.Obviously,the colour doesn't make any difference,because the dark coloured one and the crystal clear one are smelling exactly the same,and that is absolutely amazing.From the first sniff the most beautiful rose rises ,mixed with the most expensive aoud on the market,i bet,a touch of leather and of course,the liason in all Roja perfumes,the very natural and the amazing true real ambergris which makes my heart skip a beat because of such beauty.Of course there are a lot of other flowers,and a lot of spices all around the clock(meaning like 20h) but i just can't put my finger on any of them in particular,the blend being so great built that you just can't find any singular note.
The Aoud is about rose,ambergris and aoud,an unisex fragrance,one of the most luxurious fragrances i've ever put my hands on.Amazing!

Gorgeous Aoud!
If anyone is looking for smooth non-barnyard aoud, then this is the one to go for. I love aoud, but this is my favourite so far. It has become quite a norm for niche houses to launch aoud perfumes, but hands down, no one has done it better than Roja Dove. This is a winter warmer and for formal occasions.
