Roja Dove is known for using the finest ingredients available and for his precision and painstaking attention to detail, as well as his personal philosophy of never settling for less than the best. Candy Aoud from Roja Parfums offers a highly creative take on an oudh fragrance with a delicious touch of fruit.
The wood of the aquilaria tree, also known as eagle wood, agar wood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma, the most expensive wood in the world, used for centuries to make incense and perfumes, particularly Arabian ones. Roja Dove used this truly royal ingredient, also called the “wood of the Gods”, in a completely new way. “When I lived in the Middle East, surrounded by indulgence and sinfully delicious treats, I noticed that those who love oudh desire something new – something creative. And so I started toying with the idea of combining agar wood with elements of fine dining,” is how Roja Dove describes his inspiration.
His approach gave birth to a truly unusual oudh perfume. Candy Aoud from Roja Parfums presents precious and valuable agar wood in an oriental composition with pronounced fruity aspects. The aroma of this unique perfume starts with head accords of bergamot and grapefruit. The heart follows with Provence rose, apple, blackcurrant, pear and banana and the composition is completed by a foundation of rhubarb, cardamom, saffron, gurjum, sedge, patchouli, oak moss, fir balsam, cashmere wood, amyris, sandalwood, agar wood, iris root, incense, birch, labdanum, leather, ambergris and musk.
The rich, leathery foundation is warmed by a combination of precious woods and refreshed with the unusual note of rhubarb. Spice gives the fragrance life and rose in the heart accentuates the sweetness of fruit balanced by citrus notes. The full aroma, which originally combines a woody and fruity character with balsam blended with spicy, sweet and leathery notes, is rich, delicate, sweet, fruity, spicy and warm. Candy Aoud from Roja Parfums lives up to the promise of its name, delivering an oudh fragrance with a delicious touch. This lovely, incredibly alluring perfume is another example of the masterful skills of perfumer Roja Dove.
The packaging of Candy Aoud from Roja Parfums is beautiful. As is the case with all the Roja Parfums fragrances, the bottle Candy Aoud comes in is a masterful, hand-finished piece made in France from the purest glass there is. The gold label is manually embedded in the glass in England and the gorgeous ornate cap, the symbol of Roja Parfums, is hand-decorated with Swarovski crystals. The Roja Parfums Candy Aoud bottle is packaged in a beautiful, lavish box.
The Roja Parfums Candy Aoud perfume is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. This amazing perfume will forever win the hearts of all lovers of highly original and sweet oriental fragrances and delight everyone who has long searched for something truly new among oudh perfumes. Candy Aoud will envelop its wearer in a captivating, oriental and delicious aroma, and will never fail to arouse admiring attention.
