Shut up and take my money! (part 5)
At the first test I was still disappointed, because I had promised myself a different fragrance impression. On the Roja side, it seemed by its presentation much more pompous, glorious, voluminous and royal, at least this image arose in my thought muscle. Although I'm now not the type who stands on above fragrance attributes, the expectation went in this direction and my first sensation of the filling was an extremely emotional "goes so."

Because actually Burlington 1819 is at the beginning a sharp, pungent, tart, fresh, petrol-like cologne, which loses some punch in the scent development only after 20 minutes, becomes warmer and more cuddly. Nevertheless, I perceive it at least six hours very well on me, without it becoming too intrusive.

So far, I can only compare Burlington with another fragrance that I know: A Man`s Cologne by Gravel. A fantastic fragrance, in part. If, yes if, the exceedingly brutal top and heart notes would not be. A classic modern cologne that, after many hours, forms the scent that, for me, results in a cologne with potency and durability- yes, I know, actually not the characteristic quality of a colognes. These exhausting hours At the beginning led me to refrain from buying the Gravel.

In this notch beats for me Burlington 1819, only more pleasant and tolerable. My sympathetic pre-commentator draws parallels with a "musty" sofa in a cocktail bar, in which it smells of fruit (I allow myself to shorten his statements)- I feel rather reminded of a stay in a garage from the 60s, in which English gentlemen (one of them is William Habenborough, short form Will Haben) with their tweed jackets tinker with their sports cars (almost I want to say "old-timers", but in the 60s they were still as good as new). The musty I perceive as evaporating gasoline and engine oil, the fruity component is clearly present- even very tangy and almost pungent, I stress: almost. A bit of light rum, perhaps gin, floats in the air, with which you toast yourself after successful work on the speedster.

With Burlington I have found a wonderfully fresh Herbling, which has done it to me and which I can not really compare with any other fragrance. A masculine fragrance that you can not resent his appearance in the first 20 minutes. A real phenomenon is that after 9 hours in the office, back in my car, I find a pleasantly intense scent aura that I left in it on the morning drive to work. I never had that with any other fragrance before. Not even with Gravel.

Burlington 1819 is for me a cologne with potency and endurance, classic and modern at the same time. As beautiful as "love at first sight" is always with perfumes, I'm glad that even through second and third chances you sometimes only discover the value that a fragrance can hold for you. About the price you can argue, but with pleasure and luxury goods, you may like to leave that out, because you do not really need them to live, but would like.

Thanks for reading and stay healthy!

My best mojito ever ;)
The Mojito with its sweet fruity lime and refreshing mint with a little rum has always been my favourite cocktail, although I rarely drink it. That's why I find it all the more wonderful that Roja has succeeded in capturing the characteristic scent of the mojito in a perfume.

And of course there is much more: the top note can confidently be called a citrus fruit bomb, and in the most positive sense. Super fresh and super complex! I also like the fact that the fresh notes extend far into the heart note, before the somewhat "musty" base asserts itself.

Because the moist and cheerful citrus fruit mix is accompanied by an old couch. This musty aroma is probably intended to remind us of the time-honoured halls of the Burlington shopping centre in London. At the beginning I was not sure if I should like this, but somehow it sets a nice counterpoint and makes the scent look more mature. So the dose of old couch is just acceptable.

Now for the price: 225,- for an average shelf life and silage, that is with actually too expensive for an eau de parfum, although it belongs to the more favorable Roja scents. If you are at home in the Roja world, it should be a bargain for you, but the price still scares me off.

To me, it's a fragrance that's fun. Especially in summer!

The egg-laying jack-in-the-box - citrusy, sour, bitter, sweet, spicy, fresh and tangy
My very first non-designer and thus entry into the niche world

And this fragrance was for me immediately a bull's eye!
Maybe it was of course because I have not heard any more complex fragrances off the whole designer to date. Maybe he is not so good. Many of my friends find the too acidic / sharp and could not understand the magic and elegance that I saw in this fragrance.
Not only was it my very first niche perfume, but it was also a fragrance that ignited my passion and took me on a captivating olfactory journey.
When I first felt Burlington 1819 on my skin, it was like a magical moment. The tangy citrus notes greeted me with an explosive freshness that lifted my spirits and instantly enchanted me.
A short time later, other notes joined in. Spicy ginger, cumin that smells sweet and earthy rather than musty, an acidic tart grapefruit and a cooling mint.
This perfume is about how you imagine the perfect dish.
Everyone knows them:
The 5 flavors (sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami)
You try with lemons or limes to give the food the necessary acidity.
The bay leaf provides the spicy-bitter, a pinch of sugar brings sweetness into play, salt & pepper + the "meaty" umami give dishes an extra dimension and depth.
Now, of course, you can discuss whether you will hear the pinch of sugar in the food. But you just try to meet all 5 flavors. Only then you have the perfect dish.
And so it is with this perfume. It goes in all directions and creates a perfect symbiosis of all areas. Since Monsieur Dove has really created a masterpiece in my opinion.
Let's talk briefly about durability and projection:
Unfortunately, I perceive the fragrance on me after about 2-3h significantly less. What does not mean, however, that the fragrance does not still properly radiates. Be careful when re-spraying. I have then always neatly nachgelegt and thus probably penetrated my complete environment.
But I realized that only late. A work colleague I filled something from my bottle and only then I noticed how long this fragrance actually projects. He distributed the fragrance with only 3 modest spritzes throughout the office. All day. So re-spraying is not necessary. I know that by now 

Flacon:
- Love it or hate it -
I like the ostentatious, almost kitschy Roja flacons with the shiny Swarovski lids. Is just a matter of taste. The label is often glued on slightly crooked, which in my opinion should not happen in this price segment. With my flacon it is only quite marginal, nevertheless, the QS in the house Roja should give there a little more attention.

Conclusion:
Test this masterpiece, fall in love and let yourself be enchanted!

A forgotten love and one of Roja's most pleasing!
Hello everyone,

today I would like to write something about Burlington 1819 and why I forgot about it...

We had the end of 19 and the beginning at the time when Corona slowly started (I think...), I ordered BLIND (as always) the Burlington 1819 and when it arrived I knew quite quickly - it had come to stay!

At some point during the year I swapped the Burlington 1819 with my buddy (he had something I really wanted and still have today) and I forgot about HIM relatively quickly. Was this a mistake? YES!

Why?

(And this is where the actual review begins)

Ultimately, it is "simple" and pleasing and always goes with everything and in every season. It's a true and light-hearted signature - ever-walker, or whatever you want to call it. BUT... then in the drydown, a magical nature comes to light that "unfortunately" hardly anyone talks about....

Which one exactly?

In general, the Burlington 1819 starts very fresh, tangy, citrusy - tart with a subtle sweetness (grapefruit, bitter orange, mint, lime...) and this stage also lasts a very long time, excitingly enough, normally this kind of thing is over after 2 minutes or max. 15 minutes, but we're easily talking about 2 hours (although it's still noticeable afterwards)
But now to the drydown...!
After roughly 3h to 4h, it changes (completely) and lighter woods, a subtle and nice green note, some of the labdanum and the tobacco take the stage and this development and change is something that I think is not mentioned enough here
I have another 2020, don't know exactly how the very latest ones perform, but the 2022 (I had as a sample) was really ok.

About the price and is the fragrance worth the price....?

It's really really hard for me to say "yes man" or "100% no", because yes (!) it's already a hit (and now an important point), you can already notice the fine tuning, the high-quality aspect and you can already tell that it's the same with (most!) fragrances from the house - oh come on, let's add something better/more expensive...

Many houses in the niche sector, such as MFK, work primarily on a purely synthetic basis,
but here you can already notice a certain difference in quality!!!!

My conclusion on the subject of price, purchase and recommendation ...,
IF you find a leftover bottle, take it and, if possible, do NOT pay the new price,
then I recommend certain fragrances of the house, such as this one!
If I really wasn't convinced, I wouldn't recommend it to you!

And now have a nice day/evening, or whatever you read this review, LG the Benny

On another level
Roja's Burlington is not only expensive, it is also different in other ways: it begins with such a tart and authentic but also well-rounded and gentle grapefruit top note, which calls into question any other fragrance with grapefruit in the top note. This is a different level of quality, through and through.
The fragrance also retains its freshness in the middle section, but becomes somewhat softer and lingers nobly and elegantly in the air.
This is a fragrance that probably won't bother anyone, but which seems so extraordinarily noble that once you've smelled it, there's probably no going back to the world of very affordable fragrances. Once you've driven a Ferrari, you won't want to get back into an Opel. The genie is out of the bottle. It is all over. You could probably say that a bit phrase-like.
That's what luxury smells like.

The fragrance is suitable for all areas of application, including work. It can be worn all year round, although spring is probably its prime time.

Very impressive creation, rich strong dominant grapefruit scent, very fresh smelling.
2 sprays are enough, 1819 will get noticed.
