Risqué announced as latest addition to EDP collection
Perfumer Roja Dove unveiled the latest additions to his fragrance collection at a burlesque-themed launch held in Soho yesterday.
Dove’s new EDP, Risqué, is a sultry and sensual fragrance made up of an accord of citrus top notes, a floral heart and earthy base. The fragrance begins with notes of lively bergamot, lemon and Litsea cubeba, before blending into a heart of sweet jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, chamomile and a surprise note of “narcotic” hyacinth. Emerging at the base, oakmoss, vetiver, cedarwood and patchouli give way to a sensual mixture of civet and leather-like labdanum.
Also announced at the launch was the parfums extrait, Vetiver, which is centred round the sultry smokiness of Vetiver, freshened by citrus and ‘green’ notes. The top notes are amplified by a spicy blend of pepper, pink pepper, nutmeg, and caraway, while an unusual note of celery and galbanum add further freshness to the central theme of hot Vetiver, on a warm base of Guaiacwood and Amyris.
Risqué will be available to buy in Harrods in July for £195 for 100ml of the EDP or £295 for 50ml of the parfum. Vetiver will go on sale in May for £225 for 50ml.
