12,000 Taif Roses In A Bottle
This is a very potent oil to dab on your wrist, inner elbow, behind the ears, at your neck or at your temples. I am not a floral person, generally appreciating orientals and sweeter perfumes or those that are unique in some beautiful way. That is where this one steps up to the bat.
Obviously, you must appreciate the taif rose. It is said that this particular fragrance contains the extract of 12,000 taif roses. In other words, You Must Love The Taif Rose.
The first aroma is of course pure rose, a delicious, pure rose bush. You are nestled amongst a bed of roses, surrounded by the ethereal, heady bouquet. It's creamy and smooth, perhaps you can even imagine the morning dew in the essences of the taif rose. And then it sweetens slightly, just ever so. The oil stays this way for about an hour. Then the magic begins.
Suddenly, I felt as if I could smell the wet earth these roses were planted in, the leaves that had dropped and mixed in with the rich soil, pieces of branches that had fallen to the ground and begun to decompose. This was such a rich, decadent odor yet very real. Nothing seemed synthetic. As I felt I had my hands in this rich soil and was inhaling the richness of it, suddenly, the taif rose came back to wrap itself around the entire perfume. And that's how it continued to stay for hours. A mixture of reality and fantasy. This is purity, not to be taken lightly. This is to be appreciated when one has the time or inclination to savor a perfume for what it truly is about.
As an aside, I've mixed it with oud and I find it works very well.
