"I spent three years working in the Middle East where I became fascinated with the odours I encountered. A luxurioius exoticism married itself in the air, which was rich, complex, and full of volume. In over thirty years of training, I have never come across a culture which held perfume so close to its heart - the ritual of scenting was engrained as part of everyday life. This unsurpassed and cast a spell on me; I fell in love with the perfumes of the Middle East and the people who wore them. I created ‘The Spirit Of The Union’ to capture this devotion, in honour of the nation’s deep-rooted appreciation of perfume.” - Roja Dove
Bergamot and Artemisia create a fresh foil for a bouquet of Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, and a dominant note of Rose Taif, further freshened by Blackcurrant Buds, where a blend of Clove Buds, Pink Pepper, and Cumin add their liveliness, the whole sublimated by the warmth of Guaiac and Aoud Woods, Patchouli, Oakmoss, and Cypriol, nestling on an ultra-soft, sensual base of Benzoin, Frankincense, Labdanum, Cistus, and Musk.
