The usual RD con or is it great marketing?
I have many of Roja Doves creations. Mainly in 8 ml testers because I would have to sell a kidney to buy a bottle. Like with many products such as champagne you can pay ridiculous prices for something that is supposedly the best or unique. This is all bollocks. No matter what the professional perfumer or vintner says. There is nothing on earth that justifies the price. Just like champagne it's sold to a market where price is no option. £1450 for 100 ml of perfume that smells OK is not justified. I don't care if I'm told that the rose absolute costs ex amount because its prepared in a cauldron for ex amount of years by unicorns. I have tried so many of Roja's creations and yes they do smell nice. Many don't last very long so you will need to sell your other kidney just to enjoy the perfume.
Yes he has created amazing perfume but I judge him on the fact that he creates over priced perfumes that can't be enjoyed by all rather than oligarchs. His lesser priced perfumes are just copies of other houses. It's a shame that such a great talent alienates the everyday perfume lover to be able to enjoy his creations.

The perfect Chypré ?
Chypré Extraordinaire came as a bottling to me last weekend and of course, I was very excited what to expect with a Chypré fragrance from Roja. This Roja pleases even me, which is really something special. Here the Chypré theme was really perfectly implemented.

Chypré Extraordinaire starts as usual for a Chypré fragrance is fresh with bergamot, orange blossom. The heart note is really too complex to smell out everything here. But there is a great combination of numerous flowers here. The fruity notes, however, I do not smell at all. The base note is Chypré usual with oakmoss, musk, spices, patchouli and a light animalic note implemented. The leather I can also still perceive something here and a touch of vanilla, which makes the whole thing a little softer and gentler. The base note has been implemented in Chypré Extraordinaire really perfect and complex. Of course, there is Chypré Extraordinaire not really new or extraordinary to smell. Here you just get a perfectly implemented Chypré fragrance.

The durability leaves nothing to be desired with 11 hours with me. The silage is about an arm's length and becomes skin tight after 8-9 hours.

Now we come but to the point of me again incredibly excited: the price of 1750€. I did not know what this Roja costs while I have tested this, only after interest has arisen with me after a bottle, I have looked. The sight of the price caused me to go into shock and almost have facial paralysis, plus 100ml is too much for me too, I will never be able to consume that much of it. I really wonder what this this price is all about. It's really cheeky to me because I'm personally not willing to spend that much money on a consumable product. This is "merely" a perfume. At this price, I do not even consider buying Chypré Extraordinaire.

simply magnificent!
The meanwhile already well known to us creeping cat is irritated: where has it landed here?
It had heard, here is a beautiful chypre and came with the intention to scrub a little, to set here and there some markings and finally to curl up in the middle of the splendid sea of flowers and to make quietly müffeln a nap.
But what is it? The little cat no longer understands the world of scents.

A chypre fragrance opens with fresh hesperidic notes, then roses, jasmine and iris follow, before the base joins in with oakmoss, patchouli and vertiver and finishes.
Yes, "Chypré Extraordinaire" belongs in this category! Really!
But with Roja Parfums it may be "always a little more"!
Another fragrance, another fragrance gem is added and only shortly before a certain limit is reached, one stops and closes the whole thing.
Therefore, their fragrance creations can be called "lush" with a clear conscience.
So also "Chypré Extraordinaire" is again opulent, radiant and a real Oriental!

This fragrance-intensive work of art opens first as usual with bergamot and aldehydes.
But alone these aldehydes sparkle like gems; they outshine the entire bouquet of fragrances, before they mix as additional fireworks in the finale!
What follows is an exuberant floral bouquet of delicacies, tastefully and richly arranged.
Not only sweet and aromatic fragrant May roses and jasmine are brought from Grasse and bound with white-flowered tuberose; also the ever-so-lovely violet and the dark purple heliotrope vanilla dream appear and are also immediately generously embraced by ylang-ylang.
How harmoniously fits in there the tenderness of the orange blossoms touching the heart.
So far, nothing is overdosed; each fragrance building block is placed extremely tastefully in the right place of this magnificent mosaic.
So it is not surprising that the somewhat rougher rose geranium and the slightly resinous-scratchy cistus find their place in this floral dream.
They form a clever transition to the fruity notes, which of course must not be missing.
What would this fragrance structure without the ripe sweetness of the plump peach, the fruity plum aroma and the tartness of the buds of blackcurrants?
They all form the heart notes of this chypre fragrance: impeccably and at the same time very refined blended and decidedly well matched to each other.
The classic opening of the base of rough oakmoss, sensual lugubrious golden brown patchouli and a little prickly sandalwood aroma is also found here.
Special spice accents put cumin and clove, which get support from silky cedar wood.
So slowly closes this powerful fragrance circle!
Resinous and eroticizing warm and creamy fragrance notes complete with a surprisingly pleasant leather accord a fragrance composition, with which now also the little cat has made friends. She makes her presence felt before the great final fireworks of Ambergold and the still present aldehydes are ignited:
Glittering and radiant, "Chypré Extraordinaire" concludes splendidly!

"Chypré Ordinaire" is classy; despite its richness and sophistication, neither ostentatious nor loud.
It is not intrusive, but accompanies decidedly elegantly for several hours and goes amazingly well with almost any wardrobe - so it is almost an "ever-goer"!
Here, the mossy warmth of a classic Chypreduft with an unexpected bouquet of flowers and fruits to an extraordinary whole together.

I encounter here a truly wearable luxury fragrance, comparable to a precious piece of jewelry from Carl Fabergé's St. Petersburg goldsmiths.
"Chypré Ordinaire" is simply magnificent!

Swindle Extraordinaire
This one has a sparkly effervescence. It also seems to draw elements from Diaghilev i.e. that very realistic oakmoss plus raunchy civet in the late dry down. Luckily the civet in Chypre Extraordinaire is a lot more tame.

Ultimately all Chypre Extraordinary is to me is a white floral with oakmoss & laudanum, supported with a light touch fruity peach and plum, with a civet lurking in the late drydown. 100ml, yours for $2,000 USD ?

From a distance I can already hear the owners of CE lamenting the $1,600 they overpaid

If you want a beautiful white floral backed + fruity, look no further than Roja Parfums' Tuberose and skip all this exclusivity nonsense.

Tuberose is a white floral that remains fruity and juicy, Chypre Extraordinaire is a white floral with some fruitiness but veers more dry & dusty due to the oakmoss, with some animalics in the late drydown.

The oakmoss and civet that you'll miss out on in Tuberose isn't worth the extra $1,475.

Roja... Or: The weakest 1750€ of my life...
Somehow I have had NO luck with the luxury fragrance king Roja so far :(

It started 2 years ago when I treated myself to DANGER.... Jaa, he is "good", but for that one already relieves his account arguably around then "ROJA carrier" to be is and/or was he now NO WUCHT... Ixh smelled somehow always only smoky-tart, that was it already...

NOW I have purchased CHYPRE EXTRAORDINAIRE. The saleswoman in here in Frankfurt as the only ROJA-selling Parfumerie owes me ne large commission, it went 1,750.00€ over the counter!
IN the Parfumerie when testing CE was somehow everything still good, he was perceptible, noble, available and just NOT what you get to smell at every corner...
At home then strangely only disillusionment: When wearing on the skin KAUM perceptible (if you do not hang directly on my neck ;-), the durability very restrained (after 2h: GONE :( ), and I smell only the most famous 5 of history, only this is WUUMS against the Luxuschypre ...

Maybe I'm not made to be a ROJA wearer ;-)

Also has something GOOD, I save me some euros in the future :-))

This is a masterpiece, simple as that.
One of the best chypre created, rightfully placed to Haute Luxe collection.
