British niche line Roja Parfums has launched the Tutti Frutti collection, described as "a delicious collection of unexpected Aouds". The trio includes Candy Aoud, Sweetie Aoud and Fruity Aoud.
"Tasty, Tempting, Tantalising…..Tutti Frutti - I first fell in love with Aoud when I was working in the Middle East -exploring the fragrances of the region and peoples responses to them. I discovered that whilst there was an unrequited love for the ingredient there was a craving for something new, something creative. Surrounded by indulgence and edible guilty pleasures, I began playing with the idea of combining Aoud with gourmand elements. The Tutti Frutti Collection is my edible take on a much loved ingredient"
Candy Aoud ~ "a sweet shop in a bottle". ["The ultimate candy crush of Banana, Rose, Apple & Pear is sweetened by Amber and exotic Aoud."]
Sweetie Aoud ~ "a mouthwatering guilty pleasure." ["A specially-made 'Patisserie-Accord' lends this Aoud creation the enveloping sweetness of fresh baked treats."]
Fruity Aoud ~ "a delicious fruit cocktail". ["An ultra-fruit medley of Grapefruit, Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Raspberry & Strawberry blends with precious Aoud."]
I will update with notes if I can.
