Founded in 2013, ROADS fragrances bring together beautiful artisan scents with innovative themes and engaging creative elements. Curated by ROADS brand creator and owner Danielle Ryan and working alongside a team of highly renowned noses and some of the world’s finest perfumers, ROADS fragrances are sold in 124 luxury stores in 25 countries across the world.


The new AFRICA COLLECTION is an exciting collaboration of culture: where inspirational African ingredients are combined with the evocative influences of literature, art, and dance to create four fragrances that will provoke feelings of sensual sophistication, radiance, and warmth.


PAST | PRESENCE
Modern Nigerian literature has received much international acclaim and respect in recent years. Be it political or poetic, the dignity and clarity in the words of writers such as Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka helped shape the characteristics for this thought-provoking fragrance. Elegant top notes of Bergamot and smoked black tea blend effortlessly with classic Jasmine whilst the softness and warmth of Tonka bean adds the perfect backdrop.  In addition to the limited edition fragrances, ROADS have commissioned four visually and geographically diverse African artists to create packaging artwork to accompany each fragrance.


PAST | PRESENCE - YAW TONY, is a talented Ghanaian/Canadian architect, artist and graphic designer based in Toronto. He is known for experimenting with patterns, fabrics and textiles. His designs are a creative collaboration of western culture and ancient African traditions.


EDITORS NOTES
ROADS is a contemporary and highly creative lifestyle brand based in Dublin, Ireland. Built around the global influences of Literature, Film, Culture, and Art ROADS group currently consists of three categories, Fragrance, Publishing and Film. The ROADS brand ethos is about having the freedom to be a part of any product environment without constraints, whilst still remaining firm to the highest standards of modern luxury, expanding horizons and rewarding inquiring minds.
Founded by businesswoman DANIELLE RYAN, the ROADS brand is built around this inspiring woman’s cultural curation, curiosity, and passion. Coming from a strong entrepreneurial background (her family are the founders of Ryanair and a number of other successful businesses) Danielle says, “There are many reasons why I wanted to create ROADS, but above all else, I wanted to create an artistic brand that would not be confined to one idea, that wouldn’t be limited by definition, but be able to really champion new discoveries in countless surroundings.”


ROADS FRAGRANCES AFRICA COLLECTION
I AM DANCE Is based on the freedom of African Dance. The Pantsula dance is a form of expression associated with hip-hop culture, its fast off-beat rhythm symbolizes a raw strength that is reflected in the powerful notes of this fragrance. Top notes of zesty lemon, mandarin and hazy marine accord are mixed with fresh apple, pineapple and aromatic lavandin. Finally, warm base notes of Amber, cedar wood, and the deepness of patchouli are blended beautifully to create a colorful and complex fragrance.  In addition to the limited edition fragrances, ROADS have commissioned four visually and geographically diverse African artists to create packaging artwork to accompany each fragrance.
