Description: A breathtakingly sweet and rosy pink affair, this is the 2021 distillation of Taif Rose otto, an olfactory gem that I’m proud to be able to offer you – direct from its distiller in the mountains of Taif. It is incredibly rare. (This oil comes from a distillery nestled within the fields of roses up in the mountains, allowing them to distill their oil from freshly-harvested roses soon after they are picked in the early hours of the morning). The reason is that not all distilleries in Taif have their own fields, and hence can wait up to midday or beyond for their deliveries of roses to arrive, by which time of course it’s possible that the roses have started to deteriorate due to the length of time since picking, as well as the effects of heat and transportation. Aromatically, this is the gorgeously signature Taifi Rose oil, this distillation is slightly sweeter, softer, and more rosy-pink. This has overtones of a very sweet, juicy and floral lychee with mild green, metallic, spicy and citrusy nuances which balance it out beautifully. Overall, a simply gorgeous aromatic, highly recommended. It would be an incredible addition for blending in carriers / aromatherapy  purposes. Also will be an amazing addition to any Rose lover’s collection.

About the Taif Rose: Every year, around April, the gardens in the harsh and foreboding mountains of Taif turn a breathtaking pink. No one is quite sure how the 30-petaled Damask Rose made it there. From tales of the Ottoman Empire transplanting it from the Balkans to legends of its arrival from India, the Taif Rose’s origins are shrouded in mystery. One thing is certain, though. From the mountain gardens of Taif, today the world’s most precious rose oil descends.
