i don't understand anything...
neither the price
nor the brand
nor the user
nor what is supposed to be special about it

I don't know who wants to adorn themselves with this brand... For me, the whole brand is more pretense than reality.

The notes don't suggest a masculine fragrance for a second, the notes say white flowers with lots of fruit. Nothing more, nothing less. And that's exactly what you get. It's interesting that men are more attracted to this brand, I hardly see a collection of women who own Roja. That must be down to the price then.

The souk is flooded with offers, mainly from men, what was the hope guys?

What it is in any case: rather feminine, reminds me in the first 10 minutes of fragrances from the 90s, opulent, striking and extravagant. It somehow becomes slightly creamy and well-groomed. There is another way to smell creamy and well-groomed. For me, this is too little for a new release from 2024.

Is this pure perfume or eau de parfum or can it be left out? Hmm... at that price I expect a triple extract! There's something adequate with The Only One Eau de Parfum Intense

Sorry for the review, it doesn't happen often but this time it had to be.

PS: for me, there is no fragrance that would ever justify such a price.

Good, but not good enough for many!
After Isola Blu Parfum, I was looking forward to this one. And what can I say, it's a good fragrance. I see it more on ladies as the scent screams jasmine very loudly! I only notice the fruity top notes very briefly and subliminally.

Many people here are probably familiar with fragrances that smell like sun cream, body lotion or ice cream - this is one of them. A soft, white creamy fragrance. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but does it have to?
I'm a big Roja fan but never blindly defend him. He also has many fragrances that don't appeal to me.

But here we have another good example of our community and their expectations. Roja brings out a fairly linear and simple fragrance like this and many say "he's running out of ideas", or "omg ambroxan, that's not possible in this price range", "the fragrance is bad" - just to name a few. And yes, the price is too high for me too.
But these are often the very people who rate the same fragrance from other brands at 8 or higher. A double-edged sword...

But the fragrance is still solid and even a Roja or a Marly can be simple. Without notes of cowshed or leather. In my opinion, many people too often include the price in the pure fragrance rating, but that's why there are different categories ;)

I think the fragrance here smells very similar to Surfing Puerto Escondido, for example. It also comes off well - maybe the PL is better, of course - or you simply expect less from the outset. But people shouldn't forget what luxury is or which brands count as luxury ( want to;)).

But now back to the fragrance:

Anyone looking for a creamy jasmine fragrance with a subtle fruitiness and a noticeable aquatic veil should find it here.

I would wear it myself, but I prefer to smell it on my girlfriend.

The durability was more than good for both of us, it was clearly perceptible for about 8 hours.

The new bottles and the simplified design at Roja are not my cup of tea. But they are all nice to look at.

Test it and form your own opinion - many people here should do that more often ;)

Something different from the Chypre Konig
On 15.03.2024 I was finally able to order the fragrance from Roja. The order went out on the same day, as I am a big fan of "Isola Blu (perfume) / Oligarch (perfume) | Roja Parfums". I have to admit that I had imagined this great summer fragrance differently. But as I've already read here, to expect a hybrid of Pacific Chill and Virgin Island Water would not fit Roja Dove at all! But we don't get a classic chypre here either. I can certainly understand why the fragrance is polarizing here. It's just not a typical Roja and also not a typical sparkling, citrusy summer fragrance. However, I do welcome the fact that Roja Dove is taking a different approach here. After all, he has conjured up enough chypre masterpieces!

Here you get a floral, creamy-powdery, slightly fruity summer fragrance. For some, the fragrance may not be extraordinary enough. But I am of the opinion that Roja has created a "sun cream vibe" fragrance of great quality. In the opening you get a fresh citrus, but not as "sharp" as most summer fragrances. The floral notes are also immediately present and remain dominant throughout the fragrance. The apricot, together with the coconut, gives the whole thing a very slight sweetness. For me, however, these two fragrance notes are beautifully interwoven and not "over-present". The citrusy notes fade into the background relatively quickly. Light aquatic notes and a gentle base of musk and woods round off the fragrance. The entire creation comes across as very elegant, soft and clean.

From the description, you can already tell that the fragrance is more of a feminine scent. The fragrance definitely needs the right wearer. I think the fragrance is very appealing and definitely wearable as a signature, but not a blind buy. It definitely goes better with a slightly more chic outfit, such as a white summer dress or a white polo shirt.

The longevity and sillage are really good for this type of fragrance! Also just right for the fragrance. So no "beast fashion" but rather elegantly restrained. But you will be noticed and it lasts a good 8 hours on me.

Finally, a few words about the presentation. For me, the presentation of the fragrance is perfect. Watching the sunrise over the sea from an island. Catching the first warming rays of sunshine of the day, feet in the sand, while the surf gently awakens the senses. The "packaging" is based on the design of the "Isola Blu (perfume) / Oligarch (perfume) | Roja fragrance" and is really very beautiful. I see the only connection between the two fragrances in the coconut note, which is discreetly incorporated in both. There is no doubt that they are both summer fragrances. The bottle and sprayer are typical Roja in the 50ml design and are a straight 10 for me. I had the Isola Sol and the Isola Blu Parfum next to each other and it was simply beautiful. It was almost as if Isola Blu Parfum had been given a "little sister". Don't get me wrong, the fragrance is great, certainly wearable as a man, but I personally prefer to smell it on a woman.

Feel free to test it and form your own opinion! Sunny greetings Micha

Sun cream vibes
I was very excited about this release from Roja, I was hoping for my summer 2024 fragrance.

It is also a summer fragrance, but different from what I imagined.
The apricot and peach dominate the fragrance very strongly, which makes it smell mainly sweet and not very fresh. On 30 degree summer days, I think it would definitely be too sweet for me.
I can also confirm the criticism that it leans very much in the feminine direction.

About 30 minutes after spraying it on, it smells a bit like freshly applied sunscreen, it becomes very creamy, but remains sweet throughout. It smells like a vacation, it is very clean and simply pleasant.
As is typical for Roja, the bottle looks mega beautiful.

I think it is very successful, everyone has to decide for themselves the price-performance ratio, I have the feeling that the more expensive the fragrance, the harsher the criticism. Nobody is forcing you to pay the price for this fragrance :)
It will definitely make it into my collection sooner or later, but then more as a spring fragrance ;)
