Rose of the Orient
Roja's Aoud United Arab Emirates is indeed something different! The grand opening belongs to the Taif Rose,that huge pink sweet aromatic rose that fills a room up with just one flower! Dipped in expensive oud,i say expensive because,as in the whole Roja Aoud collection you can sense the quality,it doesn't make your eyes water and your nose run like other oud based fragrances.The benzoin and the frankinsence make the blend so round and so deep that gives me goosebumps! The ylang ylang makes the mix a little dusty,but that doesn't mean it changes its structure.The taif rose sweetens the scent and makes it rise above any oud perfume i've ever tried.Of course the civet has a word to say in the drydown,but not strong ,just like a whisper.UAE is so luxuriant,so well made ,bringing to the table a longevity of 36 hours( tested) and a monster sillage,it goes over absolutely any other scent around. Expensive but well worths it!
