Unfortunately too feminine and old fashioned for me....
Roja and I is unfortunately always a bit tricky. The scents all have a great quality, but unfortunately the scents never quite fit me apart from Elysium. Roja is always a little too old-fashioned and classic for me. NüWa but I still wanted to give a chance, because the notes appealed to me and the rose here should not be too dominant too.

NüWa has a really great top note, the combination of bergamot and grapefruit is very nice and also the rose, but unfortunately now already begins what bothered me. Jasmine and orange blossom pull the whole thing in conjunction with the rose in the feminine and then make the fragrance difficult to wear for me. I think nothing of the classification of fragrances in gender affiliation, but with NüWa I see simply rather a wearer Ü50. That is not meant in a wait-and-see way, but for a man in his 20s not really suitable. Unfortunately, the slightly darker base note doesn't really help with pepper, cumin, clove and Peru balsam. NüWa is not a bad fragrance but I can not rate the fragrance very well because this is for me just not really unisex succeeded and there are other fragrances in this category that are significantly cheaper than NüWa Lubin SINBAD etc.

The price of NüWa is just cheeky and lacks lediglicher logic for me and is no matter how good the fragrance is. Such a price is simply not worth a fragrance, at most an old Oud Attar.

The durability is also very good with this Roja with 9 hours. The silage is rather restrained and permanently under an arm's length, but this remains so with NüWa for 8 hours. After that, NüWa is quickly skin.

Divine fragrance with heavenly evolution
Nüwa is a Chinese goddess? And even the creator of the human race? OK - learned something again. What you also get with this perfume is the realization of how a cleanly made fragrance can develop masterfully.

After the first spray, I assumed that Nüwa would move like any other rose fragrance relatively linear. Hold quite rich after rose, with all sorts of sweetish embellishment around it, but nothing more.
A few moments later, I had the increased impression, Nüwa goes steeply in the direction of Gold Man by Amouage. That means slightly metallic-cool sharpness of bergamot with the soaked complexity of floral notes, especially the May rose (in Gold Man the hedge rose), just without incense.

A little later, the rose blooms all the more intensely again, and one might think that Nüwa, as initially thought, would meet its end on this theme. Beautiful beautiful, but there one wonders why the perfume clears so many points in the evaluation, although one sets such high standards and critically scrutinizes its creations just at Roja Dove.

The answer comes with great strides, if you are still a little patient and the drydown time to the glamorous appearance. What is then revealed is a lesson on the subject of development and twist, because Nüwa turns into a fabulous orange blossom dream with balsamic-vanilla resting pillows. It comes across as absolutely harmonious and heavenly.

And it's all absolutely pure, high quality and without any kind of interference or resistance. Yes - the stuff is expensive, but for that the wearer as well as his environment has a lot of it. No - it will not end up on my wish list as a result. And despite seemingly lacking innovation of the respective facets, he shows at a very high level, which is quite natural schnuppernd feasible.

Spicy Rose Garden
The weather is changing; the sun is out longer; it is getting warmer and the flowers are blooming—Spring has finally arrived! This is the effect NuWa has on me, and it is absolutely beautiful. The opening sparkles, like many Rojas do, but this one feels a little different—it's more fragrant and actually smells like a vibrant and ultra-fresh rose garden with other flowers here and there.

In the opening, you're blasted with a load of photo-realistic florals with a tinge of greenness and sweetness which last throughout the wearing experience. In the mid, the florals remain, but a nice spiciness emerges—giving NuWa a spicy/oriental edge. In the base, the vanilla and sandalwood shine and lend a rich creaminess while remaining a tad spicy; the florals and freshness move into the background; by this point, NuWa has become a full-on floriental. She is gorgeous throughout the entire wearing experience.

Longevity is good and occasions lean more formal; NuWa can be worn casually, however, as she has a freshness to her because of the florals; you'll just smell elegant. Seasons, spring days and summer nights, or anytime you need a pick me up. Unisex leans, leans more feminine IMO. Performance is excellent and projection is decent. The only downside is the big price tag, but that's Roja I guess. The bottle also looks amazing on display.
I don't hear this one talked about in Fragcom much, but I think that's a good thing—it's our little secret!

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.

A very beautiful fragrance - a wonderful smooth rose scent - it's an attention grabber. It's a bit oriental, but smooth and velvety.

Definitely one of the finest rose fragrances for ladies. Extremely smooth and elegant. High end perfumery at its best.
