The Sultanate of Oman is Roja Dove’s ode to the best frankincense in the world, which is harvested in Salalah, a sub-tropical region at the foot of the Dhofar Mountains in Oman.
Rare and prestigious, Omani frankincense is regarded as a gift from God and produces such a fine aroma that it is usually reserved for use by the royal families of the Sultanates.
Sultanate of Oman pairs this special frankincense with a dry oud, leather, woods, and other ancient resins to produce an aroma that is as hauntingly exotic. Overall a dry, resinous fragrance, there are little olfactory surprises that elevate this extrait de parfum; a dash of saffron for astringency, birch for a lapsang souchong smokiness, and jasmine, raspberry, and violets for a creamy swirl of sweetness. Austere and opulent in equal measure, the Sultanate of Oman is a magnificent showcase for Omani silver frankincense, and truly a fragrance fit for royalty.
