Elysium Pour Homme
Brand Roja Parfums
Drawn from Greek legend, the Elysian Fields are the eternal reward of the heroic and virtuous, a heaven accessible only to those of the highest character and accomplishment. With such lofty inspiration as background, and the sophisticated opulence of Roja Dove in control, we were expecting great things from Elysium. Now that we've smelled its fresh, warm, confident blend of musks, fruits, leather and woods, we're delighted to confirm that it's destined to become a new masculine classic.
From the opening notes, it's clear that Elysium was designed to stand out, as it features a uniquely engineered use of musk as a top note, which combines with the ultra-fresh blend of energetic citrus and aromatic lavender for a beginning as smooth as it is fresh. A juicy, sweet dose of fruit in the heart pairs perfectly with spicy woods, balancing striking liveliness with richly masculine sophistication. And in the exquisite drydown, sensual leather and soft vanilla give strength and longevity while a reprise of musk lends a dreamlike warmth that more than lives up to the ambitious name. Like the Elysian Fields themselves, one must prove himself worthy of a fragrance this outstanding. But for those who are deserving, Elysium is a reward unlike any other.
Lemon, bergamot, grapefruit, lime, lavender, thyme, artemisia, musk, lily of the valley, rose de mai, jasmine, apple, blackcurrant, galbanum, pink pepper, cypriol, vetiver, cedarwood, juniper, benzoin, vanilla, labdanum, leather, ambergris, musk
It sketches me a picture of an old man of power like god father. But yet, the smell is not really formal. Right from the first smell, you'll realize it really standout among any perfume you've ever tried with the smell of cognac.
Great fragrance. On point for my skin!!!!
Elysium is a very nice Fragrance. Would I view this Fragrance as a legendary scent...no. Would I be willing to spend $400-$500 for a bottle of this Fragrance? No!
