Fragrance: Roja Parfums Parfum De La Nuit 1


Roja Parfums Parfum De La Nuit 1

Out of all the quotes anybody has ever written about me, my favourite was when I was described as the ‘pornographer of perfume’. With this collection I wanted to create a range of fragrances that allow us to expose our true primal urges – which rarely surface during the day. I have always loved overtly sensual perfumes, and so created Parfums De La Nuit as a collection of three scents which allow us to reveal the inner desires lurking within us all.”

Roja Parfums Parfum De La Nuit 1 perfume

In Review…

Oh. My. Lord! So I know I have some HOT fragrances in my collection, but I think this has to be the hottest! I mean, where do I start?! Firstly, the quote above says it all ‘pornographer’, ‘primal’ and ‘nuit’. Roja Parfums Parfum De La Nuit 1 is an intoxicating blend of rum, smoke, spice, leather, woods and a hint of sweetness. It’s like dark rum which had been aged in a barrel of which has been shipped around the world collecting the finest exports of every continent. It’s truly magical, dark, deep, sexy, intoxicating and all those things, imagine your ultimate evening fragrance and times it by 1000 and you might get there!!! Parfum De La Nuit 1 is very special, so special that I wish I could offer a scratch and sniff function on my blog to get my point across!

I discovered this perfume when I was in the Burlington Arcade store sniffing around with the fragrance experts. We spent a long time comparing and contrasting what I liked and didn’t like and discussing exactly what I liked about each fragrance. I know a lot of people get a little confused when it comes to fragrance and trying new perfumes. It can be hard figuring out what you love to wear, and finding something to suit your personality and taste. Weirdly it was during the session, I also discovered that I adored their fragrance Gardenia, which I never expected as it’s so fresh and Classic, which isn’t my usual taste. Fragrance is a very personal thing and there’s nothing worse than wearing a perfume that doesn’t work for you, it’s well worth taking the time to speak at length with a consultant and if you can, I would definitely recommend booking in for fragrance profiling to find out exactly what you love. If like me, you love rich, smoky, woodsy, leathery fragrance, then Parfum De La Nuit 1, is just divine!


Roja Parfums Parfum De La Nuit 1 is available from Roja, Selfridges and Harrods.
