Roja Dove is the most quoted fragrance expert in the world; his wisdom and passion bring the world of scent to life. He is a historian and a storyteller but above all he is the maestro of fragrance, the world’s sole “Professeur des Parfums”. While there are other esteemed noses in the business, anyone looking for an expert’s view on what really happens in the perfumery industry is always, always referred to Roja Dove.
It might seem astonishing that the man who has become associated as the voice of perfumery should be English. However he is quick to point out that Pierre-Francois Pascal Guerlain, who founded Guerlain in 1828, studied chemistry in England. How appropriate that Roja Dove trod an almost identical path. As a medical research student in Cambridge, he happened to visit the Belle Époque Guerlain boutique on the Champs-Elysees, and lost his heart completely to the exoticism of a thousand cut glass bottles and their mysterious contents.
He bombarded Guerlain with thousands of requests for training and eventually convinced Robert Guerlain that this level of enthusiasm was better harnessed to their own name lest it drift elsewhere.Since leaving Guerlain after almost two decades, Roja continues to travel, broadening his knowledge and sharing his passion for the mysteries of perfume, whilst working with all the top names in the industry. He is a vast fountain of fragrance knowledge and inspiration, Roja Dove is the connoisseurs’ connoisseur.
