Last week, Roja led a very special event at Mosimann’s
dining club in Knightsbridge in which he created an innovative menu alongside
Marc Mosimann, and gave guests the chance to smell oils that related to the
ingredients in their exquisite food. Each dish explored a different fragrance
family and provided a truly unique sensory experience.
Roja also conducted a master class on scent, with guests, which
included Prince Mohsin Ali Khan, able to track the social development of
fragrance by smelling the great classics of the industry, along with Roja
Roja collaborated with the renowned British couturier, Nicholas Oakwell, by creating a bespoke scent for his Autumn / Winter 2012 show at Claridge’s Hotel Ballroom.
Nicholas’ collection was inspired by the lush decadence of 1970s New York. The scent Roja created for the show was a Chypré: fresh, sweet, sensual & leathery and perfectly complemented the modern and luxurious tailoring, enveloping the room in fragrance. Claridge’s Ballroom was entirely transformed into a sensuous lounge environment, the sultry atmosphere made even more dramatic by Roja’s Vetiver, Labdanum, Tuberose and Cedarwood candles burning whilst the models interacted with the stage sets on the catwalk.
Following a breath-taking and unconventional show, featuring designs of hand-made lace and shaved mink and fox fur, guests were treated to a glass of champagne.
We are incredibly proud to announce that Woman & Home readers, and a panel of expert judges, have voted Roja Parfums, Danger Parfum, the Best Perfume in the Woman & Home Best in Beauty Awards 2012.

Last week, Roja hosted a launch party at Madame Jojo’s in Soho to celebrate the launch of his latest fragrance, Risque. The party was a huge success, attended by the top beauty journalists in the UK who were thrilled by a special performance by burlesque superstar, Miss Polly Rae.

Last week, Roja attended a fabulous launch at The Dorchester for their ‘Rose Afternoon Tea’ which will be scented by the Roja Parfums limited edition Rose de Mai candle – which will also be available to buy from The Shop at The Dorchester from 19th May.
The tea is inspired by the Laurent-Perrier Bicantenary Garden at the RHS Flower Show, so it truly was a fragrant, floral feast for all the senses!
The Dorchested limited edition scent and floral themed tea will be available to guests throughout the week of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May (Saturday 19th May to Sunday 27th May)
Roja was thrilled to be part of the Katie Eary A/W show at London Fashion Week.
Katie’s A/W 2012 collection is inspired by the darker side of the fairytale; an eerie land where an evil army looms, bridging the gap between fantasy and reality. Roja was asked to create a suitable twisted atmosphere which he did by filling the room with his Labdanum and Cedarwood candles to create a ‘leather-lined coffin’ effect. The show was a phenomenal success and everyone present, including front row guest Kanye West, received a Roja Parfums scented candle to take the atmosphere home with them.

Roja Parfums is now available from The Lausanne Palace Boutique, Switzerland, at the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie.
Roja traveled to Switzerland for the grand opening and stayed at The Lausanne Palace Hotel & Spa, the pride of the Swiss city of Lausanne, whose aim is to provide “a home away from home” for all of its guests. During his visit, Roja held a training course for all of the new team, covering the sense of smell, the history of fragrance, how fragrances are constructed and the fragrance families, how to apply scent, and how to sell fragrance. Roja also went into some detail about Roja Parfums and in each of the fragrances he has chosen to be stocked at the new perfumery.
The Lausanne Palace is a most beautiful hotel, and their Boutique is the perfect home for the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie and for Roja Parfums.
It is with great excitment that Roja travelled to Russia last week as it marked the official opening of Roja Parfums at TsUM, the most prestigious and reknowned department store in Moscow.
Roja prepared a fragrance training course especially for TsUM, with specific training on all of the Roja Parfums products for the retail team. Roja also held two very popular customer events at TsUM, and met with 30 of Russia’s most influential beauty and grooming press.
“When we were asked if we would like to open within Tsum, Moscow, I knew without question that it would be the perfect partner for us. When I was very young I started to learn Russian; I continued with it for three years. Russia captured my imagination, and I am excited to see it for the first time when I come to visit as my perfumes find a new home.” Roja Dove
