O for Omega - Association
O for Omega, the last letter of the Greek alphabet. The Omega symbol represents an archway and this gate represents the last phase of life (death), through which every person must pass sooner or later.

A small look at what comes after shows us the paradise wood Oud. This wood can smell depending on the processing velvety soft after fresh hay what dries in the sun or strictly animal unpleasant and hardly bearable. The small analogy I connect with O - The Exclusive Parfum is of course only a mind game on my part. After all, everyone has scent associations (sooner or later). The point for me is that deeds make up a person and they determine how he leaves his existence in the end.
From the house of Roja Dove, this one is my clear favorite. Here the animalic note of the Ouds meets a wide spectrum of flowers and woods what gives the composition a strong tone. An interplay of individual components that only add to the oud note and complete it. The start is slightly sparkling with a dash of rose and is intercepted by a floral component that is hardly recognizable individually. After that, the stage is given to the main protagonist, oud. They rally around him and carry him up so he can shine.
He does so for hours.....

O? Why not S or B...
To criticize a Roja Dove is almost like a sacrilege, but this fragrance simply invites you to do so. Today, 23.07.2020, it is rated with 8.4 / 10 points and it will surely find its fans. So a warning in advance: Whether the 8.4 is justified or not is a matter of taste. But the value is to be seen purely statistically, namely: few people can afford an RD or ever look into a niche perfumery. Not everyone has access to Roja Dove, and if they do, the number of people who can smell the O will be smaller. And of those... well, you can see where I'm going. Count Zahl sends his regards!

It is already "special" for the normalos and the enthusiast nose. If you look at the pyramid, it sounds really promising: beautiful fine woods, wonderfully introduced by floral and fruity notes. What reads really great in theory is practically more like the job description at Bauer sucht Frau. Imagine a big stable, enter the honorable vault and enjoy the pure nature. Roja already has good hands, so you can't tell if it's cow or horse or more piglets. So it looks ... anyway it smells for the first 2-3h, which is longer than one episode. So you really can't complain about the performance. Sometime in the evening everything calms down and the wood strangling mixture turns more and more into a wood spice mixture.

But, but, but, there are berries and organs, and look.. Yes, there are. In my bathroom, when I wash this stuff off with soap and then try to olfactorically clean it with these synthetic scent fresheners. Yes, synthetics in this case trumps Roja Doves O!

And yes, I know Oud is not for everyone. But there are also oud scents that I respect, which are much more wearable and offer a minimum of decency and non-violence, especially towards Europeans. I would not put oud in this category. So why one fragrance gets 8.4 / 10 and others - admittedly not so artfully designed fragrances - are severely punished, is not quite clear to me. But my moral sense of justice is itching so much that I simply feel statistically compelled to give the fragrance a very low number.

And why O at all? S for stable or B for barn would be more appropriate. But, well, Oh dear might fit, too. Maybe a flanker in 2021 called P. Ugh

Nix da Piglet...
...I smell a refreshing and delicately sweet, yet very synthetic raspberry in the opening...
I don't like "fruit baskets", so I am not particularly taken with the start of this exclusive Roja's... For me it smells very much like artificial raspberry sherbet powder...

(Who likes raspberry in a fragrance? - for me an absolute No-Go - Sorry to all lovers, I don't want to step on anyone's feet, fragrance is a matter of taste ;-)

Violets, rose geranium and mayonnaise appear at the same time... A delicate citrus note is also mixed in and makes the prelude appear freshly fruity and delicately flowery...

A touch of leather and saffron mixes in and lets the raspberry take a back seat...

Gentle splashes of wood, swathes of resin and hints of leather are in the foreground, the raspberry has now very much retreated and only breathes from time to time... From then on I find the smell a little better...

I like the resinous tones that, together with earthy patchouli, surround the soft leather notes... My initial disappointment about the raspberry-brownish prelude, is fading a bit and lets me receive the fragrance a bit more pleasantly now after all...

The only question I have is whether I would like to have a fragrance in my collection where the opening doesn't really appeal to me at all
Hmmmm...No, actually I don't... It's too bad that "O The Exclusive Perfume" was a blind purchase...

...but where are the horses? The stable? and the piglets?
In some statements it can be seen that the -O- is very ferkelig, stabled and animalistic...
In my house, no horses, no stable, no piglets... I would have liked that, but far and wide there is nothing... Either I'm a fan of oud and I'm a little numb, or there are no horses... Maybe the raspberry just comes out too strong and I only smell the...

The sensation of scent is also totally different, I would say, everyone is right :-)

Opens spicy/fresh and settles into a woody, oriental, animalic, leathery fragrance. I don’t smell any fruits.

After a brief spicy/animalic opening, this thick and fruity/sweet, oriental spicy-woody fragrance, settles to a creamy earthy-woody base.
