My visit to the town of Taif was truly incredible. The rose festival ‘extraordinaire’. Taif Eau de Parfum, the first scent ever to formulate over 50 other ingredients into this exceptional rose attar.
Dates, date oil and date juice all play a highly significant role in Arabian life, whether offered as a welcome token, a peace offering or breaking the Ramadan fast once the sun has set.
Date oil is an important part of this top-selling perfume.
Ta´if is an intoxicating and audacious rose scent from the town of Ta´if which sits above the shores of the Red sea and overlooks the Arabian desert. 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.
