Sultanate Of Oman by Roja Dove is an Amber fragrance for women and men. Sultanate Of Oman was launched in 2017. The nose behind this fragrance is Roja Dove.
Sultanate of Oman celebrates the very land of the producers of the finest frankincense all through history. The solid and full-bodied olibanum is paired with raspberries, violet, grapefruit, saffron, rose de Mai, and jasmine to polish the edgy characteristics of the incense, and then joins a thick base of oud, orris root, carrot seeds, and balsams to maintain its wilderness and emphasize on its regarded origins.
Top Notes: Grapefruit, Orange
Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Jasmin de Grasse, Violet, Raspberry
Considered gender neutral, was super strong masculine scent! Terrible smell on woman. Gave to my son, a Scent Split connoisseur, who didn't like either. Agreeing, very masculine and exceptionally strong with harsh notes. Thought Roja was top brand. Maybe? But the high price was a total loss.
This scent really smells as if the perfumer went to an omani spice bazar, bought some of every sort of spice they had, grinded and liquidated it somehow and then decanted it into Swarovsky bottles. My first inpression of it really wasn't the best one as it is merciless as the arab desert and savage as barely a second one (and I did try Tom Ford's Tobacco Oud). But after a couple of seconds I started loving it. It meets all my criteria for a fragrance, which are as follows: It should be deep, projecting, long lasting and -most important- far off the mainstream and without any citrusy notes you can actually smell. It's really interesting to smell all these different nuances Sultanate of Oman has. You'll get the smell of resin, Oud, incense and much more. However after all, tons and tons of spices are what defines this wonderful fragrance. It is this one of a kind mixture of spices that give the scent it's uncompromising boldness, and given to that, it emanates power and a whole lot of confidence, which you should definitely have if you decide to wear it at all. And if you even want to wear it at work, good luck. Only do it if you work in a leading position that noone can take away from you. For example if you are the Sultan of Oman or a Secretary of Defense.
After all I can say that Sultanate of Oman is a fantastic choice that gets uniqueness to another level and will extend your olfactory horizon.
Peace be upon You
I will be buying the bottle
To be reductive, this fragrance is very similar to Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather but with the bright Omani frankinscense instead of the ashtray debris. It adds a welcome complexity that helps with the monotonous linear drydown of TL. Now it's not twice as good as TL so the value may be lacking but that depends on your taste and budget. Similar performance as TL. 8.9/10
it really is something I haven't smelled before. a lot of perfumes I have smelled before have this gross bitter undertone this does not
