Ta’if is an intoxicating and audacious rose scent deriving inspiration from the town of Ta’if which sits high above the Damascan shores of the Red sea and overlooks the Arabian desert. Linda Pilkington describes her visit to the town of Taif as truly incredible, ‘the rose festival extraordinaire’. Ta’if is Ormonde Jayne’s utterly seductive and exotic scent, defying all expectations of a rose perfume, formulated with over 50 ingredients. Opening with sparkling top notes of pink pepper, saffron and dates, its opulent heart of freesia, orange blossom absolute, jasmine & Ta’if rose oil emerges. The Ta’if roses are picked in April at dawn, before the buds open. Their unforgettable drydown with broom & amber, leaves you hopelessly hooked. Date oil and saffron are important parts of this distinctive and addictive ‘floriental’ scent. This perfume dislikes daylight preferring dusk, the night, parties, promises and assignations. It is an opulent composition which makes a bold entrance and is confident enough to sweep everyone else to one side – a real belle of the ball.
