Key Notes of Enigma

What Does Enigma Smell Like

Enigma by Roja Parfums offers an initial spritz of zesty bergamot that gives the perfume a bright freshness. This subtly citrus start smoothly transitions into a rich, dense heart dominated by lush peach notes. The peach in the heart of Enigma is juicy, slightly sweet and has a mild tang that mimics the taste of biting into a ripe fruit. It's accompanied by the exotic floral scent of ylang-ylang, adding a creamy, custard-like sweetness. The olfactory profile is further enriched with the gentle powdery notes of heliotrope that evoke the aroma of a light floral-vanilla dusting powder. The subtle, classic romantic aroma of May rose and the green-tinged floral scent of geranium adds an additional dimension. The jasmine and neroli make their presence felt as a white floral touch with a hint of citrus.

The base of Enigma is a smoky blend of sandalwood, providing a slightly woody, milky, and richly aromatic undertone. This is blended seamlessly with the powdery-sweet aroma of iris which lends a comforting yet fresh feel. Soft musk adds a subtle, slightly animalic layer while the inclusion of vanilla gives a soft, cozy and sweet dimension. The ambergris imparts a serene marine tone which is subtly earthy due to the hint of patchouli. Overall, Enigma smells like a sumptuous bouquet of fresh fruits and flowers lightly dusted with vanilla powder, resting on a bed of musk and woods.

Review of Enigma

Enigma by Roja Parfums is an intoxicating dance between the more prominent floral, sweet, and fruity notes that is sure to entice. Despite its complexity, it's remarkably easy to wear, making it a favorite amongst women.

The perfume's allure starts with a vibrant burst of bergamot, stimulating the senses and setting the stage for the upcoming symphony of scents. The heart of the fragrance is where it truly shines, carrying a bouquet of ripe peach, intoxicating ylang-ylang, and delicate heliotrope. The resulting aroma is a captivating mix of sweet and floral.

The base notes hold their own, providing a solid foundation with the soft warmth of sandalwood and a hint of rich vanilla. It's a scent that lingers, subtly reminding you of its presence as the day goes on.

However, it's worth noting that Enigma's sillage isn't overwhelming. It's a more personal scent, one that invites others to lean in rather than announcing your presence from afar. This subtlety can be a double-edged sword, making it a wonderful choice for more intimate settings while perhaps lacking the punch desired for bigger events or outdoors.

Despite its rather steep price point, Enigma delivers a scent experience that's both memorable and enjoyable. It's a perfume that comfortably straddles the line between everyday wear and special occasions, making it a versatile addition to your collection. It's best suited for spring and fall, where the balance of sweet and floral notes can truly shine.

In conclusion, Enigma by Roja Parfums is a beautifully crafted fragrance that delivers a delightful, sweet, and floral aroma. However, its subtlety and price may not be for everyone. It's a perfume for those who appreciate the art of understated elegance, a quiet confidence that speaks volumes.
