There are scents that make me smile and scents that transform me, move me, and bring tears to my eyes. That’s how I feel smelling Roja Dove Amber Aoud. A brief background of Roja Dove. His scents are only available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the U.S. You can always cross the pond to Harrod’s and take a whiff if that tickles your fancy. The scent takes me back to Egypt. That country is magical to me and I can’t wait to return.
I hadn’t had a fragrance moment like that in a long time until I was at Bergdorf with my friend Sarah and took one whiff of Amber Aoud. Tears came to my eyes. Seriously. I had to take deep breaths. I think I spooked Sarah a little bit. I don’t come off as emotional (I am), but that day I was a mess. A lot of people don’t really understand the power of fragrance. Coco Chanel famously said “a women who doesn’t wear fragrance has no future.” Coco I get it. I do believe scent is transformative. Roja reaffirms my belief in the power of scent.
Every time I apply Amber Aoud I am gone. Blown away. It brings back so many memories. Beauty is powerful. Embrace it. Own Enjoy it.
I love being a girl.
