I first became aware of Roja Dove whilst watching a Channel 4 documentary about a year or so ago and became rather intrigued by his thought process and how he drew inspiration to create each fragrance! That being said, I had been gifted his Elysium fragrance and it is making me long for the upcoming Spring/Summer seasons...
- Top Notes: Lemon, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Thyme, Lime, Artemisia, Musk
- Middle Notes: Lily-Of-The-Valley, Rose de Mai, Jasmine de Grasse, Apple, Blackcurrant
- Base Notes: Galbanum, Pink Pepper, Cypriol, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Juniper Berry, Benzoin, Vanilla, Labdanum, Leather, Ambergris, Musk
The opening of Elysium is quite sharp and with the bitterness of the citrusy notes bursting through such as the Lemon, Bergamot and Lime.
That bitterness soon fades however into a more woodsier direction with a hint of spiciness to it! In terms of the longevity, I was rather impressed as the scent lasted for up to 7 hours on my skin and its sillage was medium-heavy.
I gained a lot of compliments from having worn this and I will be honest, during the dry-down I did get a slight Creed - Aventus feel to this, however, the difference between the two fragrances is that Elysium has a much more sweeter feel to it!
Overall, a well-rounded fragrance by Roja Dove and a perfect fragrance for wanting to impress those around you whilst being effortless. You can purchase Elysium here!
