Too much of a good thing?

Today it's supposed to rain red roses, Master Roja probably thought, as he, sitting in a baroque armchair decorated with real gold, meditated on his next perfume prank.
But rose scents are like sand on the sea! "A unique selling point must come, possibly even an emotional selling proposition..." Then Master Roja ponders further and reviews his previous works in his mind's eye. "I haven't used cumin in an exciting amount for a long time, but that sometimes creates such a dirty, fruity, lusty undertone. I like to stain the innocent rose with it... yeah, that could work... and then maybe carnation?... which was already considered an aphrodisiac in the Middle Ages... and then some resins and the secret Roja wood-spice mixture sprinkled over it, that should actually fit."
Thought, done, the Master took action and created Nüwa.

And now I have a sample of the precious elixir in my hands and full of joyful expectation it is sprayed on my wrist. Holla the forest fairy! What the hell is that? Certainly not a subtle rose fragrance - rather an admirer who stands in front of the front door with a bouquet of 1000 stunningly fragrant roses than nobody opens his door with his own key and catches his beloved in bed in the bedroom with the pretty boy from the exotic spice stall at the weekly market in flagrante.
Full of just indignation, the deceived man beats the two of them with his rose bush in bed, the scent of the roses mixes with the animal smell of warm sweat and other body juices and the exotic spices hanging in the young lover's work clothes, including pepper and cumin, do not unattractively complement the scent of flowers. Maybe there is also a wooden plate on the nightstand with remains of grapefruit and oranges with which the two lovebirds fed each other teasingly little pieces? Possible that even a little blood flowed through the spined rose weapon and contributed a metallic touch...

I can absolutely understand that there are perfume enthusiasts for whom this fragrance must be the fulfilment of their rose dreams.
Rose is always a difficult fragrance experience for me and so Nüwa is the first Roja that I test, that really makes me unwilling - and that I have to wash off, that's how overwhelmed I am by this rose spice attack.

The Goddess of Sandalwood
Nüwa lastest formulation is not what your usual Roja Dove fragrances tend to be.It isn't a luxurious chypre,a wonderful oud blend or a frankincense masterpiece for that matter. When it first touches the skin one tends to get a bit shocked.Because apparently Nüwa is a very simple fragrance.It stays liniar somehow,and only a few notes unfold. Oh boy but how those notes are! I've always been in love with sandalwood,the good one,that in White by Puredistance and that one in the old formulation of Xerjoff's Richwood (the new one doesn't impress) and Nüwa has the best possible.It opens with a burst of natural citruses and right after the roses follow. Jammy roses,bit gourmandish from the sweetness of the benzoin resin,but nevertheless the most amazing rose de mai scent,followed up by the sandalwood.I have no idea if this is the famous Mysore sandalwood,but it better be for that price tag. So we have citruses,and the famous rose sandalwood concoction. That's about it.But trust me when i say that even though in the very beginning Nüwa doesn't amaze by complexity or the richness of those so many notes in Roja's creations,it is a gorgeous fragrance,and the quality of the ingredients used makes it that way.One might sniff the place where was sprayed over and over again and that in my opinion is not bad at all.Does Nüwa worth the pricetag? Yes,definetly,cause if your choice is of the other similar ones you might pay pretty much the same.
