Created By British Perfumer Roja Dove, Roja Parfums is widely recognised as the world's most luxurious fragrance house. Roja Dove is renowned for working with only the finest quality materials; from Rose de Mai, Jasmine de Grasse and natural Ambergris, all costing considerably more than pure gold, through to handmade, silk-lined boxes, and Swarovski encrusted, 24 carat gold coated caps, and candles with their fine fragrance grade oils mixed with the finest wax and painstakingly poured by hand, everything is made without compromise. Each scent is made in England, and Roja Parfums is a true testament to the beauty of British perfumery. Roja Dove is equally well known for his creative perfumery style, with American GQ referring to him as ‘the greatest nose in the world’, and The New York Times considering him ‘a master tailor of scent’. When it comes to luxury fragrance, there is really nothing quite like Roja Parfums.
The scents of Roja Parfums are stylish, contemporary and made to last, recalling the luxury of the past whilst anticipating the expectations of the future. The concept for Roja Parfums is simple; it is Roja’s fundamental belief that there is a perfect perfume for everyone, and the collection is a balanced palette of scents that allows a client to find the perfect scent for them.
Rolls Royce, Laurent-Perrier, The Four Seasons, Fabergé, and The Macallan are just some of the world’s most prestigious brands that have called upon the imitable style of Roja Parfums. Such collaborations confirm Roja Parfums place at the forefront of artistic innovation in England.
The international success of Roja Parfums, combined with the creativity and relentless drive of its eponymous creator, led to Roja being appointed by the government as an Ambassador for GREAT Britain - a campaign that celebrates the best in British craftsmanship and innovation.
Roja is renowned for his passion for the scent which is grounded in memories of love, and a love for discovering the sensuality of the world in new and surprising ways. From childhood, the experience of perfume would transport Roja from the temporal to the fantastic - a place of perfection and dreams that could instantly be rekindled through scent. To this day, it is this artistic magic that inspires Roja to create perfumes that surprise and astonish, perfumes that encapsulate this exciting time in his life - perfumes that are, the finest fragrances in the world.
Dove has also given lectures and spoken at charity events for The Barbican, The Science Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 2010 Dove worked closely with the Victoria and Albert Museum for their exhibition Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, which ran from 25 September 2010 to 9 January 2011, where he created an accompanying fragrance named ‘Diaghilev’ and gave an evening lecture upon 1920s Parisian society and perfume.
Following on from his bespoke fragrance experience Dove decided to present his own fragrance range. Initially referred to as ‘The Trilogy’, Dove created a scent for each female fragrance family; Oriental, Chypre, and Floral, entitled ‘Enslaved, Unspoken, and Scandal’ accordingly.
