“Citrus Bergamot adds its freshness to a bouquet of Geranium, Rose and Ylang Ylang in the heart of this creation, further sweetened by fruity Peach, warmed by Sandal and Aoud Woods, and Patchouli, the whole sublimated by a soft, sensual base of Benzoin, Vanilla, Orris, and Labdanum, with whispers of sensual Musk.”
The technical language of perfume appreciation aside, my personal interpretation and experience of Roja’s parfum Enigma Aoud from the first spritz is warm and earthy. Within a few minutes it seems to change on my skin, enveloping me in a sweet warmness. I like this scent because it is almost like two fragrances, as it continues to develop throughout the day.
