Fragrance description Roja Parfums Diaghilev
Diaghilev is a chypre fragrance for men and women from the Imperial collection of Roja Parfums, a British niche perfume brand. Since 2007, Roja Parfums has been offering its customers a brand new concept of luxury and sophistication in perfumery that is fit for our modern times. It proudly bears the name of its leading personality, one of the greatest fragrance designers in history. Roja Dove is known for using the finest ingredients available and for his precision and painstaking attention to detail, as well as his personal philosophy of never settling for less than the best. The sumptuously rich Diaghilev from Roja Parfums is inspired by a famous Russian art critic.
Sergei Pavlovich Diaghilev, whose name the perfume bears, was an art critic, patron, ballet impresario and founder of the most important corps de ballet of the early 20th century. And in the 21st century, he became the inspiration for another masterpiece by perfumer Roja Dove. “I’m immensely proud of this work,” says Roja Dove about his perfume. “I love its voluptuous richness, its complexity and depth, intensity and passion. I was inspired by Diaghilev, one of the most important creative forces of the twentieth century, a man who changed the world and rewrote all the rules. This perfume is precisely for people like that.”
Diaghilev from Roja Parfums opens with head accords of lemon, bergamot, lime, orange and tarragon; the heart blends in Provence rose, jasmine from Grasse, tuberose, ylang-ylang, heliotrope, violet, black currant buds and peach. The foundation comprises notes of cloves, cumin, nutmeg, patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver, benzoin, vanilla, Peru balsam, iris root, styrax, labdanum, leather, ambrette seeds, ambergris, musk and cedar, guaiac and sandalwood. Diaghilev is warm, dry and sweet, spicy and delicate and immensely sensual.
The rich, deep base presents oakmoss, vetiver and patchouli heated by a complex blend of precious woods mixed with spicy accents, enveloped in a provokingly sensual combination of vanilla, benzoin, Peru balsam, styrax, leathery labdanum, leather, musk and the precious ingredients ambrette and ambergris. The fragrance is balanced by a mixture of fresh citrus fruit blended with tarragon that reveals a seductive floral bouquet accentuated with fruit notes. The full, extremely complex and rich aroma strikingly combines a woody and musky character with powdery aspects of balsam, animal notes and citrus fruit, resulting in a fragrance that the brand’s representatives describe as “a decadent, heady sophistication”.
The packaging of Diaghilev from Roja Parfums is luxurious. As is the case with all the Roja Parfums fragrances, the bottle Diaghilev comes in is a masterful, hand-finished piece made in France from the purest glass there is. The gold label is manually embedded in the glass in England and the gorgeous ornate cap, the symbol of Roja Parfums, is hand-decorated with Swarovski crystals. The Roja Parfums Diaghilev bottle is packaged in a beautiful, lavish box.
Diaghilev from Roja Parfums is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year, but will shine best in the evenings of cold months. This amazing perfume will forever win the hearts of all lovers of original chypre and aromatic woody fragrances and all creative personalities. Diaghilev will envelop its wearer in an incredibly sensual aroma and will never fail to arouse admiring attention.
