British Master Perfumer
"I am fortunate to have always lived a charmed life - happy to walk the path I was born to travel along. I was exceptionally lucky with my debut into the professional world of perfumery as I was offered a role within the most prestigious of all French perfumery houses. My training was classical, studying the great masterpieces, and learning the beauty of the raw materials and how they have been used over time to create different effects. In some ways I was totally ruined, I grew up in a world full of vicuna, silk, and cashmere, rather than wool, cotton, and nylon.
I am very lucky that I have no-one telling me how to create or what to create. I do not believe it is possible to be creative to order, it is an emotional process. My intuition alone leads me." - Roja Dove
In recognition of his work, Roja was appointed as an Ambassador for the GREAT Britain campaign.
