    Default Roja Dove Amber Aoud/Crystal

    For those who have smelled of both of these, I was wondering if there were significant differences between the two fragrances.

    Amber Aoud has a very nice prominent note (sorry, I know it sounds obvious but it really smells like Amber attar oils that I've experienced before). It is sweet and lasts for quite some time.

    Crystal Aoud is rose based. Quite a sharp rose. Reminded me of Heeley's Agarwoud; I prefer the rose in Heeley.

    Based on my limited wearings of the two Roja Doves at this point in time I prefer Amber Aoud.

    I'm not sure but I think the OP might be asking about differences between Amber Aoud and Amber Aoud Crystal. There are crystal versions of all three Roja Aouds.

    In my opinion, dark juice amber aoud seems to last and project a bit longer than the crystal version. The notes also seem a bit crisper in the dark juice. If the OP was asking the difference between Roja Aoud and Roja Amber Aoud they are different fragrances as stated above.

    Love the regular Amber Aoud, have not tried the Crystal, but am also curious. Hopefully some more people can answer to get a consensus on sillage/longevity differences, if any. Hard to get so many opinions or forum consensus on such an expensive fragrance that probably only a few dozen here have tried...

    In either case I would personally stick to the regular version - can't be any weaker than the crystal by my logic.

    Having worn both, I found no difference. The reason for Crystal version, RD, right or wrong wanted to give people the option to have one that will not stain clothing.

    They're both similar on the rose and oud Amber oud is more opulent/richer deeper and Aoud is fresher and crisp....Amber Aoud is beast mode and Aoud is average in longevity and projection...both winners as I have both but if you have one you really don't need thee other regardless(short summary)....peace

    Yeah, I was asking about the difference between Amber Aoud and the crystal version of the same fragrance. I have the crystal version, but I haven't smelled the other one. When I was adding it to my wardrobe, I didn't see an option for the crystal version, so I just added the regular one to keep track of my usage instead. I didn't know if one was superior, etc. Thanks for the responses.

    They're pretty much identical. As they were intended to be. I like the clothing-staining red version better, though. Just for the visual. Full disclosure, I have not been able to justify the breathtaking price points to myself (yet?) and I'm not an owner.
