Solution of the riddle
When an Englishman like Roja Dove calls his creation Enigma, he will have thought something of it. Finally this name is firmly connected with the encryption machine, which was used in the 2nd World War by the Germans to encrypt messages and was regarded as unbreakable, until the British captured a copy and decrypted it with very high personnel, machine and time expenditure. Only in this way was it possible for the German Kriegsmarine to find out about and refute its secret missions. This was the turning point of the German superiority in the Atlantic as well as in the North Sea and finally decisive for the war.

So much for the historical significance. Roja Dove himself sees his puzzle olfactorically in such a way that it seems to be something different for everyone, but is very determined and certain in itself, even though it triggers this ambiguity in others.
How right he is, because this fragrance is probably one of his most multi-faceted and complex.

Enigma is very opulent in the first seconds with plenty of citrus and floral notes, especially heliotrope and patchouli. It comes across very full, fresh, blooming and absolutely alive. You know right away: there's something precious here and it goes on.

A few bars later, the eau de parfum slowly radiates more softness and warmth. The floral notes are enhanced by tobacco and vanilla, surrounded by many other pleasant nuances. A bit, as already mentioned with some people, the Vanilla/Cherry-Cola theme is touched upon, but for my feeling it is rather short and not really concise.

Rather, the creation reminds me of a round in the traditional men's club, where luxuriant bouquets of flowers are to be found and exude their fragrance, plus the warm smoke of Cuban cigars, blended with the aroma of swivelled cognac and delicately sweet vanilla biscuits.

Interestingly, however, not everything sniffs at the same time, but again and again the individual scent impressions come alternately, like small morse signals that one wants to receive and decode. And that for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours. Like Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla, only with more exciting, sparkling magic all around.

Even the scent remains on the textiles on the following day flatter the nose and lift the personal mood many times higher. I want to overlook the price again, but in the end one has the certainty that one has sprayed on an eau de parfum whose value one can directly sniff out.
The only mystery for me is how not to like Enigma pour Homme. And an even bigger riddle: why was this little masterpiece only discontinued?

Robert De Niro in the movie Casino
As the title suggests, I could imagine this scent at Robert De Niro in the movie Casino. I am new here and fascinated about the many beautiful texts and professional nose among us. This will be my first rating from many as I have a quite large perfume collection and would like to share my experiences with you. Thanks to Parfumo I was able to buy many fragrances and discover them for myself. I would like to start slowly to give something back to the forum.

Now to my principle of evaluation. I am not a professional and my nose is big but not "highly gifted" in smelling. Therefore my texts will be much shorter in the other evaluations. I want to help people who feel and think like me. I have developed a great passion for fragrances, but I will not go into every single note and divide the fragrance down to its finest molecular structure. I will divide the fragrance into opening and dry-down, look at shelf life and sillage (my skin is probably very special because only very few fragrances stay with me for a long time), the occasion and the tendency to sex for the fragrance and present feedback from my surroundings. In the end I will dare a visualization, which personality would carry such a smell. I will not go into the price because fragrances are an art and every work of art has or develops a personal value. I won't go into the number of sprayers either, as everyone is free to decide for themselves how much of their perfume they want to apply. Now for the fragrance!

Opening: Violent when you open a cherry Coke in the 90s in Los Angeles at heat, and the smell makes your thirst even stronger. Or if the simultaneous interaction of a noble whiskey/cognac melts easily on the tongue and one has puffed a noble cherry tobacco cigar in front of it, the smoke still lies a little in the nose. Although a lot happens in the opening, nothing smells synthetic, but very natural and high quality.

Drydown: Sweet, vanilla, male groomed, cherry tobacco dipped in soft whiskey/cognac and laid on clean wood.

Shelf life: lasts loosely 8 hours!

Sillage: you are clearly perceived, up to 4 hours of good performance. Then a little softer.

Occasion: Evening, colder temperatures, chic dress.

Sex: Male

Feedback environment: very positive, many compliments, unusual fragrance, sooner or later you will definitely be addressed about the fragrance!

Visualization: As already mentioned several times, I imagine a wealthy man in the 80s in a suit with this scent. He runs a business (even with a bit bader guys) and therefore participates in meetings with lots of whiskey, cigars and fine old wooden furniture.

I hope you enjoyed my first review and look forward to the coming texts from me. Many thanks again to all the members who helped me with my perfume trip. Now I try to put my experiences aside for other travellers.

Love greetings
Danijel

the stuff of which luxury is made
"Enigma pour Homme" lights up!
Not only as a men's fragrance - no, women also wear a very big fragrance trobe with it: glamorous and mysterious!

In order to recognize this, one does not need a deciphering machine and does not have to solve any riddles; even Gustav Holst's variations of the same name lose their sonorous charm to this scent.

I've seldom met a bergamot as glittering as this one. Usually this fragrance seems a little musty to me, not very lively and often dampens the citrus freshness: it loses a part of its perceived bite.
But in this fragrance trio the faithful bergamot shines, without which a fragrance prelude hardly seems possible.
She opens the curtain and presents the flowery-opulent heart of this fascinating composition of fragrances.
The rose geranium is still a little shy, but the vanilla-heavy scent of the deep purple heliotrope makes up for that - it generously spreads its warm and creamy aroma.
Elegant rose queens and powerful white jasmine with its large golden-faced flowers exude enticing sensuality. They whisper: "Come closer, my dear, come much closer!"
Neroli, on the other hand, enchants with a hint of a slightly brittle virginity: these contrasting scents attract each other and complement each other perfectly.
And thus prepare the "Red Carpet" for a luxurious, wonderfully spicy base: an almost creamy fragrance heaviness unfolds.
A powerful whole, which should not be deciphered at all: it is simply noble and beautiful!
Warm and spicy due to precious resins, warm spices and noble woods surround this densely woven something; surprisingly sweet and soft and at the same time smoky and strong.
Old golden-brown cognac with aromatic smelling tobacco sits comfortably by the fireplace, in which a wonderful fire flickers: a magical moment!
This fire jumps over to "Enigma pour Homme". The velvety golden streams of patchouli give this fragrance final depth and body.
This physicality can possibly frighten or even deter.
Or dress and enchant: just like me!

"Enigma pour Homme" awakens in me the need to be held and to spend the long, long time of its durability together with this fragrance magician.
Longing for harmonious hours at the fireplace, accompanied by mysterious whispers, enticing flames ...
Somewhat mystically old and bubbling with vitality, passionate young reveals this fragrance course.

"Enigma pour Homme" cannot be unravelled and not only for gentlemen - it is a rich and lavish embrace of the universe!

He is not a mystery...
I'll try to be brief.
Enigma = a riddle, hmm, that's not it! Here much was mentioned... tobacco, rum, cola, ashtray, vanilla, gourmand...
What's true about that? Anything!

What to take with you?
The beginning was really disappointing for me! Hung-over sprayed, because I was on a very long birthday..., directly it became flowery for me. He's got that "whacked-out ash-tavern note" nastiest! At least in the beginning..., then slowly but steadily a great rum-vanilla note fights its way through. This becomes more and more prominent & the ashtray note quieter and quieter!
In the end, we have a great tobacco gurmand that's not too sweet. More like something for Ü30 (sorry to the young people;)).
Sillage: you know who you are!;)
Performace: 12-14 hours with me!
Conclusion: Once again a Roja who convinces me completely!

Favourite tobacco gourmand scent in just 2 days
I've read a lot about the scent before and the association with CocaCola came up again and again To be honest, that's also why I ordered a sample. Already since my childhood I find this cola aroma very unique and special.

Enigma begins with Coca-Cola! A Formula 1 car that runs on CocaCola ("Benzola"?? well forget that again) as fuel ... at least that's my impression. Because I perceive a bergamot covered with cognac and cola and an animal note (I would say leather)...dark, attractive and special.
But why Formula 1? Enigma recalls in me the memory and the smell of wet, hot asphalt.

The animale fades with the time more and more and the smell becomes sweeter and more cuddly.

I was looking for a new fragrance for colder days or fresh summer evenings.
For me true despite the high price actually immediately clear, Herod is definitely bought but Enigma goes ready tomorrow here one.
It is simply complex, attractive, dark, sexy, special and unique.
With this scent you stand out.

Type human?? Casino guy in middle to higher age with dark suit, good-looking, sexy with scar in the face, the expensive leather belt and the elegant watch may not be missing of course
Facial expression? I can get em all!

So this is my first comment in the forum and I hope to have given one or the other a metaphorical description, though superficial.

Finally found...
There he is now. I never thought I'd find THE perfect fragrance someday. Which I really don't find fault with. Where I'm not looking for mistakes and weaknesses to buy endless more fragrances that satisfy my greed for the one, real fragrance. With Enigma I also found my favourite fragrance house in Roja at the same time. I feel that Roja brings out a new scent every day and luckily not everyone likes it. But of the countless scents of the house that I like, the Enigma EDP is my favorite.

In general I'm a fan of tobacco/vanilla fragrances, but the enigma with this mad cognac note is more beautiful than anything smelled before. It is sweeter, softer and more vanilla than Enigma Parfum and projects a little more strongly. The perfume can be kept a little longer.

I can understand the association with cola, at least for the first few seconds, because then he quickly becomes more floral. Rose comes along and after a while the tobacco and this heavenly cognac note blend together to create an attractive, sexy, boozie cloud that is completely unisex to me. I imagine it very appealing to a woman.

In any case at least one test worth

Spice of life
An intoxicating foray of black pepper and Lime collided intensely yet stunningly with freshly chopped ginger and cognac straight from its oak cask. Exquisitely underpinned by a bouquet of animalistic Jasmine massaged in benzoin and barrel aged tobacco. A Boozy, classy delicate dance on the promenade; cigar smoke fills the air while the spill of spirits become more distinguished with each temptress that passes by.

Almost perfection, in the middle of two different paths.
What is the intention of this perfume? We have here the typical chord that pretends to be sexy mixing ingredients like vainilla, alcohol and tobacco. A completely night out kind of fragrance. Before testing I was expecting something sexy but in a luxury way, maybe the sexier perfume in this range of notes (Herod, Tobacco vanille, Back to black, chergui, etc..). But I found something different, we have those notes, but the intention of this perfume is not sexy. After a dared and shocking start, the perfume quickly turns into a totally different texture that what I´ve seen in another range of perfumes.. like.. Blue amber - Montale, Amber Oud - by kilian, Ambre precieux, etc. This has clearly another intention. Something like ambered vanille but not in a sexy way if not in a powdery, comfortable, friendly and warm adorned vanille. This is not what I was waiting for, but being what it is, we have a masterfully well blended powdery and relaxing perfume, that uses ingredients to grab attention but in a safe way, on a secondary level to complement the main idea. Personally, I'd rather have this two intentions (seduction/endearing) separately in different perfumes.
