    Default Roja Dove Amber Aoud First Impressions

    Hi all!

    New to the site here - have been collecting and trading all sorts of fragrances for years now.

    Decided to splurge for the Roja Dove 3 Aoud 30ml collection.

    I've smelled lots and LOTS of scents in my day.

    Decided to spritz on one shot of Amber Aoud Parfum.
    This parfum may be one of the most jaw-dropping, masterfully crafted, awe-inspiring dry-downs I have ever come across.
    The opening is strong. Really strong. It's certainly an Aoud. But ten minutes later you start to get those middle notes. It's just too good.
    It's like if you were to see the most beautiful thing you've ever witnessed, then apply that to a scent. It's truly a dream, and I usually NEVER review parfums.

    This is the real deal folks.

    Let me know your thoughts

    I am lucky enough to own this. Wore it on the weekend and it was a 12 hour masterclass in luxury perfumery

    One of my favorites from Roja for sure. I don't wear it too often because I want it to last

    i agree, words almost fail to adequately describe how beautiful this fragrance is.

    i’m lucky enough to own all three versions - Absolue Precieux, Parfum, and Crystal Parfum. every time i wear it it blows me away.

    It's a very nice scent indeed.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    The parfum and crystal parfum are pretty much the same fragrance, the crystal just lacks the colorant and allows you to wear it with white clothing. The absolue precieux is the highest concentration of the fragrance and performs better than the parfum. It is very expensive and if money isnt an issue, then thats the one to get, otherwise, either of the other two should suffice.
