Rose de Taif
This variant is currently sold out
Taif is a beautiful city in Saudi Arabia, high up in the hills with a glorious history, rich culture, and a unique geographic position. Located on a mountain, its territory is very steep, covering altitudes between 4,920 and 7216 feet above sea level. Unlike most of this special country, the climate is rainy and is green with many trees. Not only this, but it is also home to an incredible raw material largely unknown by modern perfumery: The Taif Rose. While Damask roses are grown in Bulgaria, Turkey, Morocco and other areas, the roses in Taif are much more powerful, fresh, and possess a very sophisticated fragrance.
Notes from the Playground:
With a name like Rose de Taif, you are expecting a majestic and extravagant bouquet of roses, and Perris Monte Carlo has really delivered on this promise! Rose de Taif is incredibly well-balanced; It's a vibrant display of rose petals, but its fragrance is not too overpowering. Instead, Rose de Taif is a symphony of elegance that leaves beautiful trails in the air. This rose is intensely feminine, yet the addition of spices and woody notes adds a subtle masculinity so the majesty of this rose can be enjoyed by all.
