    Default Have you ever been complimented on a Roja Dove

    Title says it all. I’ve been wearing samples of different ones and although I like creation e and uae I have yet to have any reactions to it.

    Only by my wife, I can't think of a time I received any from strangers, then again I don't wear them as often casually around town.

    I have worn a few (Creation E, R, Elysium Parfum Cologne, and the Vetiver extrait) and while I thought it smelled good I did not receive a compliment. They are however very classy, high end fragrances. They mostly feel like suit and tie fragrances. Nobody wants to compliment me in my Target shirt and Kohl’s jeans lol.

    Nope.

    Amber Aoud - every time - and Risqué. I haven't been wearing Roja fragrances for a long time but in that time I get a fair amount. I have noticed some heads turn. Ultimately I wear them for me but compliments are nice occasionally.

    Yes! And by women I did not know. At least 4x this year. 2x when I was wearing Fortnum and MasonTaif Aoud. "Gee you smell nice. what is that?" was what a woman administrator said in a local hospital when I was there working recently. I was wearing Semi Bespoke 23 which is quite powerful and bold (especially for a restrained Roja Dove fragrance). I wondered for a moment if I had applied too much. Earlier in the year I was in a Las Vegas casino and a woman looked at me and said "wow, is that you? I love that cologne you're wearing." That was one of the times I was wearing Taif Aoud. I'm sure I have gone an entire year or two previously with no complements. I started wearing Roja Dove perfumes in November of 2017 and have built my current collection through 2018. I wear Roja Dove fragrances about 85-90% of the time now.

    I primarily wear my fragrances for myself. I don't fish for compliments. Lol. I don't mind if others can smell me but I do not want to be offensive and in your face with my perfume. Any complements I receive from perfume is always pleasant surprise. I'm fortunate to have so many exceptional Roja Dove fragrances to enjoy!

    Have received several on Elysium Pure Parfum.
    Has a great grapefruit opening followed by the best generic male frag dry down I have ever smelled.
    Has a general appeal (it smells good) but will also click for more experienced noses.

    Elysium, yes..a few times. Enigma, just by my wife. I did wear Enigma today and I had a co-worker seemingly come closer than normal, but could just be my imagination. Definitely no words passed.

    Yes I have and they were Creation E parfum extrait, Elysium cologne and Diaghilev which really surprised me. I don’t wear any of my frags for compliments but it is nice when you do receive one.

    Amber Aoud, Elysium and Vetiver Extrait have each been complimented randomly "in the wild".

    No compliments yet, but I did receive a card from Roja Dove enterprises thanking me for my purchase, and asking me if it wouldn't be too much trouble, to upscale my wardrobe or kindly refrain from wearing their products in public.

    You're too much!

    There's no way they would not want to be associated with someone who possesses sharp wit like yours! I'd hang with you any day! Now excuse me while I run in the market to grab some breakfast items, wearing Crocs and socks.

    Roja Aoud always gets two thumbs up from my other half. She loves it on me, so it seems. Also had compliments from family on Aoud, and they don't often comment on how I smell.
    Had one compliment from the OH with a wearing of Enigma. Currently waiting on a 10mL decant of the stuff so we'll see whether she comments again.

    No. But then, that makes any Roja on a level with anything I have ever worn.

    Surprisingly quite a bit, but not from ones you would expect. For example I never received compliments while wearing Elysium (edp or Parfum), Vetiver Extrait….etc, but I've received compliments while wearing Risqué Pour Homme, Scandal Pour Homme, Kuwait, Oman, UAE....pretty much everything from the Gulf collection (especially Kuwait, this one leaves a dark vanilla trail that people really dig). One thing for sure is that with Roja, less is more, the parfums are super potent, and even when you don't smell it you're still leaving a big scent trail, I learned this the hard way.
