Clone Formula: Roja Dove Enigma Pour Homme

A fragrance which expertly balances the balsamic sweetness of Benzoin and Vanilla with the dry masculinity of Tobacco and Cognac, Enigma is an enticing experience which transforms any who wear it into a man of mystery and intrigue. An unusual effect occurs where the slightly powdery and Cherry-like tones of Heliotrope mingle with the mouth-watering quality of the Vanilla and Benzoin and appear to fizz, as the boozy splash of Cognac creates a delicious cocktail, which is enjoyed alongside a fine Cuban cigar, as the smoky tones of Tobacco are given a hot spark by the gentle spice notes of Cardamom, Ginger and Pepper.

Fantastic, and a great way to make something so luxurious without the big price-tag!
I’ll buy this formula soon.

Hi Jamie,
Is it possible to replace Anethole with anise oil?

One last thing, Spirambrene I can’t find it anywhere … can I replace with AMBROCENIDE / GRISAMBRENE / AMBRAROME?

Hello, i just found a French website that stocks a lot of oils, inculding spirambrene. Its directpcw.com
For anethole, you can find it at perfumersworld.

Question for James and for those who want to answer: the difference between this formula (2019, Parfum cologne) and the Parfum version of 2013, is it only one of concentration or also of formulation? Thank you very much.

I don’t know it especially with Roja Doves Enigma.
But normally when a Perfume is released at for example EdT and EdP its not just the concentration that changes. The formula normally changes too quite a bit in most cases

Hello Jamie, 1 ingredient missing, the isobutyl q. I have the one with the different CAS number. PSH does have the CAS# 93-19-6. Will this work? Is it worth getting or is the 65442-31-1 almost the same thing? Thanks

Hi Jamie, very interesting formula and I have most of the ingredients except 3 of them beginning with E…(for the boozy notes). Can’t find any of them at PA, PSH, Pell Wall, PW,etc. There are only 2 chemicals for the boozy notes I could find, probably they are more common (E.H and E.L)
Maybe Christine can get samples for me e.g. at Vigon.
Another thing I have noticed is the ingredient for the Iris note at 20% …wow that’s a big amount! I am excited to know about the effect in this formula…!

Hello, PCW has the three you are missing. Keep in mind they can actually have 2 different names which you can find online, but for example ethyl caprate = ethyl decanoate. Just check them on the good scents company and you will find their alternative names, then get them on directpcw.com. I am also surprised by the iris note… Enjoy

Thank you, and how can I order from directpcw.com? After signing in and by means of a creditcard or PayPal? At the Basenotes DIY forum I’ve read that they accept a certain creditcard payment only??
