There is amber in its name but rose is the star.

Incense and resins at the base add a touch of smokines..
It is bold, so just one or two sprays will linger for the entire day. If you want to know what “classy” smells like … this is it. Amber Aoud is a real compliment getter and unisexy. The man in your life is likely to sneak a spritz.
Roja Parfums 51 Pour Femme smells expensive on first spritz. This fruity floral oriental is in a word…beautiful. Scents of lily of the valley, leafy violet, exotic tropical flowers and orange blossom glows with ambery sunshine in this scent that evokes a young feeling. Clove and cinnamon are sprinkled over a raspberry kiss as vanilla and benzoin caress sheer woods, benzoin and vanilla at the base. Whether you are at work or out on a date, 51 Pour Femme will get a lot of attention.

A shower of golden resins warms the air and rests on a vanilla and amber base.The bottle is hand set with fourteen Swarovski crystals is the deepest ruby red; the color representing joy, good fortune, and happiness associated with Chinese celebrations and weddings. Nuwa would be a wonderful perfume for a bride or to wear for special occasions.
