Roja Parfums Launches to press

Roja Parfums, the new and extensive range of luxury fragrances and perfumed candles by Roja Dove, launched to press at The Four Seasons Hotel last Friday.

The launch included a presentation by Roja during which he unveiled the new Roja Parfums fragrances, Reckless and Scandal Pour Homme, to a captive and enchanted audience. Roja Parfums will be avilable from Harrods black Hall Perfumery from Saturday 2nd July 2011.

“In a dusky, candlelit room, amidst the crystal chandeliers and ornate mirrors gently reflecting the flickering light, are tables full of flowers, beautiful perfume bottles and carefully placed photographs. The fragrance from the candles is almost overwhelmingly beautiful, people gasp softly and smile as they enter. An elegant man stands in the middle of all this, looking slightly nervous, suavely clad in a dark suit which might be velvet, I can’t quite tell as I walk from the huge wooden doors at the back of the room that have been heaved open to let us in. I notice the exquisite gem-studded gold brooch on his lapel, subtly twinkling as we file in to the banks of chairs that wait for us, all more than ready to hear him speak at last. There is a hushed reverence that seems to fill the room, a sense of shared expectation…He is Roja Dove, the world-renowned perfume expert…”

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.”
