Fancy Ketchup
In a world where rose/oud combos are as common as ketchup, there's one brand thatft packages it up the fanciest. Roja Parfums Taif Aoud. Fancy ketchup.

It would be a travesty if I left a review at that, so all jokes aside i'll say this is actually a good quality departure from sweetened-up westernized oud fragrances. Taif Aoud opens with a burst of aldehydes. I do share in the sentiment of reviewer Gabri031982, wishing that that opening would last a bit longer.

The fragrance transitions to a heart of Taif rose of exceptional quality, and oud. There is something a bit sharp about about it but it wasn't enough to make me feel like i'm being stabbed in the nose and make it bleed

As the fragrance continues drying down into the latter stages, the cassis becomes more and more amplified, giving Taif Aoud an animalic edge quite similar to the one which civet was responsible for in Roja Parfums UAE Spirit Of The Union (original formula multi-colored cap bottle), but with a greenness to it.

Taif Aoud was at no point sweetened up and seems like one which would appeal more to a middle eastern audience, although anyone can enjoy it whether it be an acquired taste or naturally appeals to your palette. I fall into the former category and from time to time still struggle sometimes with that animalic side of things.

Taif Aoud is perfectly suitable for both men and women, terrific for the brisk months of fall. I wouldn't describe it as 'thick' or 'warm,' found it a bit on the lighter side and slightly airy, so i'm not sure if it's adequate for cutting through the piercingly frigid temperatures of mid winter. I can certainly put it to the test if i live to see another winter

Initially clean and soapy spicy-floral, a gently fruity, creamy/sweet oriental floral-woody Spring fragrance, with a soft musky-woody base.
