Roja Dove, Master perfumer
I was walking through a National Trust garden the other day when I stooped to smell a rose. The delicate, quintessentially English scent transported me back to my grandparents' garden when I was a little girl. There I was cavorting under a weeping willow in a frilly frock with brown ribbons in my hair. Magic!
|Roja: "Choose your scent wisely"
As the master perfumer, Roja Dove, told a rapt audience last week at Henley's Phyllis Court club: "Unstopping a bottle of scent transports you to a different place. It's like releasing a genie from a bottle."
