The Essence of Perfume by Roja Dove -

Date Posted: 4th July 2014

The Essence Of Perfume by Roja Dove is the Master Perfumer's definitive guide, offering a rare glimpse into the knowledge, passion, and creativity of a Master Perfumer. Since it was first launched, The Essence Of Perfume has become the benchmark text for perfumery worldwide, and is an indispensable industry reference for many professional fragrance organisations.


Championing true innovation and artistic flair, award-winning perfumer Roja Dove takes us on his own personal journey of scent, from his transformative childhood memories, to the creation of Roja Parfums; revealing scandals of the fragrance world printed here for the first time. Dove explains why it is essential to look to the past in order to create the future, asking 'What Next?' If Dove's prediction is correct, perfumery is about to change forever.


Due to unprecedented global demand following the sell-out first book, this new edition features additional sections about the inspirations behind Roja Dove¹s creations; new methods of extraction; a comprehensive list of the exotic raw materials of perfumery; and never-seen-before fragrance bottles. Highlighting classic male fragrances, this new book is one of the first to celebrate men¹s perfumery in its own right.
