Quite simply one of the best examples of vetiver in modern perfumery, Roja Dove’s Vetiver is a green forest bottled. With a pure focus on vetiver, this is the kind of scent that will satisfy hardcore vetiver aficionados but also win over the those reluctant of this ingredient purely on the merit of incredible raw materials and blending.
Roja's Vetiver possesses none of the synthetic woodiness that can sometimes make vetiver-dominant fragrances too fuzzy in feel, nor does it allow vetiver’s natural tendencies towards sour marshiness to emerge. The grassy, nutty, and oily properties of vetiver root are all present and correct, but are pushed to the background where they perform as a creamy, woody hum to allow the tart yet lush citrusy facets of the root to shine.
Vetiver is a series of little balancing acts between smoke & wood, damp & dry, and green & creamy, that add up to a symphonic whole where nothing sticks out. Towards the soul, it develops into a smoky, earthy leather accord guaranteed to make your eyes roll back in your head with pleasure.
“There is no material in perfumery quite like Vetiver – it is at once earthy, smoky and leathery all in perfect harmony. Sophisticated and incredibly versatile, those who wear it are confident and self-assured – a presence in any room. Vibrant Citrus notes create a lively freshness around the dry warmth of Vetiver, whilst both Cedar Wood and Needles, and Oakmoss add heat and complexity. Everybody wants to be near him. It is the ultimate example of how a modern man should smell. The Vetiver wearer doesn’t provoke envy but instead, adoration.” - ROJA DOVE.
Vetiver, a warm, dry, fresh, and spicy Chypré fragrance centred around the sultry smokiness of Vetiver, freshened by citrus and ‘green’ notes. The dynamism of Bergamot, Lemon, and lemon-like Litsea Cubeba is amplified by a spicy blend of Pepper, Pink Pepper, Nutmeg and Caraway. An unusual note of Celery Seed and Galbanum add further freshness to the central theme of hot, smoky Vetiver, on a warm base of Guaiacwood and Amyris tempered by Rose and Jasmine. Cedarwood and Cedar Needles are underscored by the dry scent of Oakmoss and sensual, leather-like Cistus and Labdanum to perfectly complete this quintessential Chypré fragrance.
