#424 Inspired by Elysium by ROJA is a welcomed new addition to Valley of Roses.
Overall, Elysium Parfum Cologne smells like fresh, dry, citrusy, and very masculine scent and the main notes that you can smell right away are grapefruit, vetiver, ambergris, and lime. Absolutely beautiful fresh fougere!
Elysium Parfum Cologne is an extremely complicated scent, very well blended, and definitely one of those scents that evolve so much like it’s telling a story – and it is. The opening starts as crisp, fresh, and dynamic with an amazing burst of lime and grapefruit which are reinforced with pink pepper. In the opening, you can also slightly feel a special type of musk that works like a top note even though it’s in the base, and it’s the only musk in the world that performs that way.
A combination of heart notes is just stunning. Vetiver and grapefruit would be the only note that you could detect while others are mixed in such a good way that’s almost impossible to figure them out. Overall, after initial opening passes and you get to the heart notes, you Elysium Parfum Cologne starts smelling like fresh lavender combined with a touch of floral-fruity combination. WE ARE OBSESSED!
