Vibrant Elegance
Manhattan by ROJA Parfums
What a stunner this is!
And I’m not just talking about the presentation which is just beautiful.

This seems to have been tailor made for me.

In one word: Boujee And I mean it.

It manages to be both warm, spicy, rich, enveloping, opulent…
…AND bright, sparkly, aromatic, energetic, classy, elegant.

The opening on this is truly breathtaking to me.
A bright bergamot dancing with coconut and floral nuances with a slice of freshly cut ginger and a couple of basil leaves on top.
In fact - the opening leads you to believe this will be a gourman leaning scent in a similar fashion Ambre Narguile or Nobile's La Danza delle Libellule do, but... Nope!

This develops. A lot!

A few minutes later, the florals give Manhattan a bit more complexity with crisp freshness from Violet, elegance from rose, carnal touches from jasmine and powdery Almondy nuances from heliotrope.

There’s a soft spiciness throughout the whole experience with pink pepper and the ginger. The basil and pine nuances balance it out.

Then comes the rich and opulent base of vanilla, musk, light vegetal tobacco, cinnamon, cloves, benzoin and cedar mainly.

This never gets too sweet, too woody, too crisp. It’s simply put: perfectly balanced to my nose.

In typical ROJA fashion: SPARKLY. And this never gets old to me.

Rich. Complex. Busy. Energetic. Classy. Opulent.
Manhattan. New York.

It just fits me and moves me; and that's more than enough to me.

Scent of Winter season 2023
I just received the fragrance this morning and after giving it a full wearing I can confirm that this is going to be my go-to-scent for the upcoming winter months.

The scent starts with a sparkling mix of citrus, aromatic notes and tobacco. Although not being redundant the opening gives me a similar feeling like wearing the Enigma (Creation E) Parfum Cologne.

After about 15mins the citrus component starts to fade and the tobacco gets more prominent. Spicy and ambery/vanilla tones start to overshadow the aromatic notes. About an hour into the wearing I do see why people compare this fragrance to Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford.

This fragrance is still different to Tobacco Vanille, it only shares some facets.
Another facet of the fragrance is the ginger note which is probably responsible for the sparkling opening and remains as an uplifting character in the scent at this stage.
In addition, the coconut notes gives a fragrance a smooth character and the pine note adds some woody character. This stage of the fragrance remains for about 4 hours until the fragrance makes a slight turn again.

Deep in the drydown, maybe at the 5 or 6 hour mark, a rose note shines through. To be honest, I wasn’t looking at the note breakdown at first and I was wondering where the rosy smell came from until I noticed that it must be me. Then I checked the fragrance notes and saw there is rose inside.

I couldn’t detect the fragrance anymore after about 7 to 8 hours after application.

As you can see, the fragrance is very complex and although I used other fragrances to describe the scent, the fragrance happens to be very unique to my nose. I understand why many people take comparisons the TV but this one is not as linear and also more subtle. I wouldn’t consider this being a weak fragrance at all but TV is definitely more projecting and also longer lasting, however, I see Manhattan definitely more office and work appropriate.

Today, I enjoyed every minute of the wearing experience and I’m definitely going to wear this one with the same excitement during the winter months.

Considering bottle and presentation, I guess there’s not much to say except it’s gorgeous.

Talking about the price, I understand that 350€ (300£) is a steep price tag for a fragrance but considering presentation and the complexity of the scent, the price is justified in my opinion.

I find this fragrance more on the masculine side on my skin, however it would be interesting to see how it develops on feminine skin. I usually don’t put genders on fragrances and I think woman can easily wear the fragrance with confidence as well.

Another Excellent Roja Dove Creation
Reminds me of Xerjoff 's Naxos creamy notes. The initial spray is outstanding and with effervescent hints and the dry down is warm, creamy and inviting. This should be a great fall and winter perfume. I would say this leans more masculine.

This is so nice. Overall, I'm very pleased with this blind buy Roja creation.

Tobacco, heliotrope, cinnamon, clove and vanilla. Also a hint o lavender and patchouli. Well balanced fragrance similar to a soft Arabesque.

This scent it's beautiful! I hope it be back again. The sweetness and creaminess is just stunning. It reminds of Frapin 1270, but better.
