This truly is one not to miss, if you’ve ever wanted to hear Roja Dove in action. A spellbinding speaker, incredibly knowledgeable (and now of course with his own Roja Parfums fragrance line), Roja makes fewer and fewer public appearances nowadays – so better book your ticket fast. (And they’re just £10: one of the all-time scent bargains, we reckon – and just £7 for concessions…)
Roja will explore the history of haute parfumerie, exhibiting some extremely rare historical scents to smell. He’ll also discuss the very first couturiers to venture into the world of fragrance, and who changed the face of perfumery. (And will throw in quite a few fascinating anecdotes, we’re sure.)
The evening will culminate in experience a work that Roja Dove has created especially for the evening – ‘The Spiky Face of Classicism’ – which is an homage to Alexander McQueen.
