United Arab Emirates is Roja Dove’s love letter to the people of the Middle East who joyfully douse themselves in the most luxurious of fragrances. Inspired by men unafraid to wear the richest and creamiest of rose fragrances, and women who proudly wore the most animalic of ouds.
This extrait de parfum pays tribute to this taste for exuberance and luxury by loading up on the most sumptuous raw materials in the world – the costliest Ta’if rose, the smokiest, most refined Laotian oud, and the finest floral absolutes and concentrates available this side of Grasse. Supported by a creamy mélange of white and yellow flowers such as jasmine, gardenia, and ylang, a bright, pure Ta’if rose sings out.
The leathery, animalic oud note is sharpened by an undercurrent of civet, but buried deep enough in a cloud of benzoin and spices to soften its impact. The roses, white flowers, and creamy civet come together over a dense, smoky layer of resins, woods, and oud, creating a shimmering, sensual halo of a scent.
