Ta´if is an intoxicating and audacious rose scent originating 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.

As soon as I landed in Arabia and reached the hotel, I was presented with a welcoming date drink. Most delicious! Once in my room, I found a box of Medjool dates to keep my energy levels up. It was already apparent that date oil needed to feature as a pillar of a new perfume. Beautiful memories.
