An olfactory pearl
Roja Dove is an impressive and dazzling personality. Not only is he undoubtedly a true genius of perfumery art, he also knows how to attract attention and bring himself to the fore as a brand ambassador.

At an event on the occasion of his book "The Essence Of Perfume" I once met him in the London luxury department store Harrods. Roja is a man who wants to attract attention: a colourful shirt, gold chains and countless golden rings have become his trademark. He has become an icon who consciously wants to stand out from the other figureheads in the industry - not only in terms of his appearance, but also in terms of his fragrances.

Roja wants to take us on a journey and so it is no wonder that he is able to tell a story about each of his creations. As so often, he comes back to personal experiences - for example to his mother, who once sparked his love for fragrances in him.

He is a great storyteller and can make completely new olfactory experiences possible with these stories. It is fascinating to learn how he designs his creations, what natural ingredients they contain and how expensive they are to buy.

Roja, the businessman comes in the course of the event to talk about his individual fragrances and you are spellbound by his immense knowledge, which he acquired in the course of his life. Finally he leads to his personal signature scent, because for years he has been wearing nothing but "Haute Luxe".
So anyone who wants to smell like Roja Dove can do so now. But this circumstance can also be paid for princely. In my opinion, however, the presentation of the flacon is exaggerated. As usual, the bottle is anything but simple. This perfume wants to attract attention and pulls out all the stops.
First of all, it is noticeable that the perfume contains small gold flakes and that the bottle decorated with Swarovski crystals also adorns Roja's signature. What at first seems impudently snobbish and still has an interesting background story, though. Because if you really want to experience this fragrance with all its facets, you have to look behind the obvious.

Even the first impression leaves no doubt that this is an absolute luxury product. An elitist chypre-out filled with the highest quality ingredients the planet has to offer.
Roja attaches great importance to mentioning that it is not the gold, but the other components of his perfume that cost significantly more money. The jasmine costs twice as much as the gold, the violet almost four times as much.

The scent begins floral, I perceive a pleasant scent of dreamy violets and jasmine. This immediately awakens associations with a spring-like flower meadow. Overall, the fragrance continues to develop in the direction of powdery-mild. The cloves contained are surprisingly reserved, the scents of vanilla, iris and a high degree of amber provide a restrained, warm aura, which is later complemented by noble woods.

The Sillage and the durability are above average as with all tested Roja perfumes. But you shouldn't make the mistake and expect "Haute Luxe" to be a loud perfume. It is much more reserved than the whole presentation would suggest. The perfume is pure reserved luxury with an enormously versatile character.

Of course, the fragrance is not worth 3000 euros - the hair is measured. Rather, you pay for the exclusivity that this limited edition fragrance embodies.
If you get involved, this one takes you on an interesting flowery voyage of discovery.

Overpriced but good
I had a chanche to test this in Dubai Mall. I is poudre with lavendel and some eastern ingredients. The quality of the ingredients is really good. Not bad at all, but definetaly overpriced.

Masterpiece!
I went down to Harrods Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie and i tried this one. Was totally blown away by this out of world parfum. Yes, the price is very hefty, but the sheer quality of the parfum justifies the price to me personally, someone else may think otherwise. This parfum reminds me of the movie 'Perfume The Story of a Murderer', underrated classic must watch film.

Haute Luxe Triumph
Yes, the price is outrageous - $3,500. Yes, the whole idea is overblown - actual gold flecks, I'm told at the counter. Whether in the bottle or the actual liquid, I didn't get. I wasn't paying attention. My nose had taken over my brain. Today, clearing my desk, I came on the scented paper in its envelope and had to write a review because I'm once again concluding this is the best thing I've ever smelled. By genre it is both a proper chyre (bergamot, labdanum, oakmoss) and a near-proper oriental (bergamot, jasmine, amber, vanilla), missing musk. The chypre element is deepened by addition of the faux oakmoss note now in vogue because of EU regulations (patchouli/vetiver). I mixed both the pure chypre accord and the faux one during my on-going Learning Chypre sniff fest to experience them and what's here is authentic. The spice in Roja is delicious, the cedar entrancing, the florals an olfactory garden of sophistication. It's as if Roja Dove decided to take the best in perfumery and push them beyond magnificence. For 10 years this was Roja Dove's personal perfume. It wasn't on sale. Now you could still say it isn't really on sale. There was only one bottle at Neiman Marcus when I went there a day in advance of his visit. You have to order it online at his site or go to Harrod's in London and there's no guarantee it will be in stock, I hear. Roja perfume (which at the counter they called Haute Luxe) is the best of the best I've smelled in my two years as a perfumista. Wear it and be assured only a handful on the planet will smell as good as you. I didn't love love his other fragrances. Innuendo is my favorite of the women's line. Diaghilev is wonderful among the men's. But as soon as I get an extra $3,500 I don't need for anything else, I'm getting on a plane, flying to London, getting in one of those Hackney cabs and driving straight to Harrod's. They called him Professeur de Parfum during the years he worked at Guerlain. With Haute Luxe, Roja Dove proves he deserves that title.

The 7.5 ml Discovery Atomiser I ordered on the website arrived today and fully justified the price with its great beauty--notes of far greater quality and depth, a composition far more brilliant than any of the hundreds I own. Only two or three stellar vintages (Shalimar extrait, for one) are even close to the same league.
