The Mystery Of The Taif Roses And Reasons Why They’re So Adored
If you read anything about Trussardi the Black Rose, you should know it is built around the heart of Taif roses. These blooms derive from the land of Taif in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. While the Damask Rose is known for its deep and potent fragrance in the West, in the Arabian world the Taif Rose is renowned for the same properties. Often described as astonishingly aromatic, these 30 petal roses create a unique fragrance that is intense, yet magnificent. I find the fragrance of Taif Rose absolute to be enigmatic at first. Originally, it is quite a mild and spicy floral. As the fragrance develops, the smell of rose becomes clearer and the sweet pink rose notes combined with soft honey notes have a great deal of strength and long-lasting depth.

The Black Rose revealed to me that things aren’t so black, and this scent is an unexpected rose. The scent evolves through a spicy, floral, and chypre phases. The first thing that comes to mind when I smell this bouquet is an exotic liqueur from Arabian nights. A pink pepper note is set at the very opening, blended with the bright and light pink flowers whose yellow heart spreads an intense and persistent perfume. Close your eyes and imagine to walk over a pink flowering carpet and the air plenty with their delicate fragrance.

The heart is nothing but rose, syrup rose. The quintessential aroma of Taif rose is warm, highly tenacious, immensely rich, deeply rose adorned with spicy and occasionally honey-like notes. It holds a powerful and complex fragrant scent that entices the senses. Nature has conceived an alluring and captivating aromatic redolence that is considered the best in the Middle East. The exotic Saudi-Arabian rose is the true heart of the scent.

The base concludes in a classic chypre, warm, and oriental way, with notes of sumptuous vanilla, chocolaty patchouli, suave musk, enigmatic amber, and emotional resins, connecting the East and the West through scent. The heady of the Orient mixed with a salty Mediterranean air. Ain't no oud here, which puts this cologne in the same class with Montale Roses Musk.

Fall is an ideal time for this scent. It’s the time when the abundance of its ripe and juicy scent is in harmony with chilly air, yellowish leaves and last days of sunlight. It is labeled as unisex and gourmands of both sexes will know how to enjoy it. There is a lot of wisdom in this fragrance proving Trussardi's genius. It suits workdays at the office, so delicate, not offensive, with moderate sillage yet long-lasting longevity.

A kiss from a rose on the grey
I love a good Oriental Rose, Turkish or Taif. It must have woods also, as well some touches of balsam and resins, and very important, an earthy vibe.
This Black Rose has all that, plus a sweet vanilla drydown bottom frame.
Trussardi seemed to have lost its touch, even with some lousy bottle designs, breaking an high class pattern it had established in the past. Now this designer is coming around again. I noticed that with the good taste traditional bottle design. I tried three of the the two past years lounchings, and became surprised quite positively.
This Rose is very middle Easterner, quite different from the Cartier's Declarations and close to Montale and Mancera Roses.
So far I just had a small decant from this perfume - thanks Poppy - but will certainly buy a full bottle together with the new woody and ambery Trussardi scents.
Worth to buy or at least give it a try.

The best mysterious Taif Rose I've ever smelt, here as a gourmand note with chocolaty patchouli and lavish vanilla, no oud yet so oriental!

This one is a Middle East rose, quite different from the Cartier's Declarations, close to Montale / Mancera, and half way to Kilian's roses.+3
