Haute parfumerie on the catwalk

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.

Roja Dove Bespoke Amenities for the Four Seasons

When the new Four Seasons Hotel London started to think about developing an exclusive range of bespoke guestroom amenities, they knew it would have to be something very special to mark the opening of the new hotel on Park Lane and looked no further than Roja Dove.

Roja describes the exclusive Four Seasons fragrance as a refreshing blend of bergamot, orange and mandarin, touches of jasmine and rose for sensuality, and vetiver, a special mix of woods and a note of fir balsam for warmth and gentility. “The scent of Four Seasons is exactly that – lively but not jarring, sensual but understated, warm, gentle and enveloping – for me that is the embodiment of the Hotel.”

Roja Dove creates exclusive signature scent for The Four Seasons

When the team at the soon-to-be open Four Seasons Hotel London started to think about developing an exclusive range of bespoke guestroom amenities, they knew it would have to be something very special to mark the opening of the new hotel on Park Lane. They wanted an original collection that would match the chic, contemporary style of the guestrooms and suites; one that represented the understated elegance of Four Seasons spirit and above all, one that Hotel guests might have chosen for themselves and want to return to time and again. Recognising what a tall order this was going to be, they turned to Roja Dove and asked him to make a signature scent that would satisfy these demanding, yet crucial criteria.
