Upon first application, I got an unfamiliar waxy smell, it smelled like what I imagine literal rose petals to smell like(oddly I've never smelled a rose before!). That quickly mellowed out, with the rose and citrus acting harmoniously.
I absolutely love this one. It is crisp, fresh, and very sugary for me, and it doesn't fade quickly at all. The sweetness adds some warmth to it as well, making it even more versatile than if it was just straight rose/citrus, definitely near gourmand territory for me. I want to take a literal bite out of it!
This one is it for me. Not only summer, this one would work great year round, I've always struggled to find those special summer fragrances. Sillage/longevity/projection is all over the place for me, sometimes I feel like it lasts for at least 6-8 hours, other times I feel like it fades much quicker. Lasts longer on clothes of course.
It isn't too often a scent makes me smile, but like Ghaliyah, it did it. J.T CANADA
Radiant! Ebullient! Exhilarating!
Lemon; clove; rose
Zesty! Sparkling! Frolicking!
As soon as I smelled your Ward al Ta’ifi I was immediately transported to the middle of a sun-drenched rose garden in which every bush was cascading with fully open blossoms. The oil smells so radiant, sparkling and ebullient! It’s lemony fresh without smelling acidic, and the heady scent of roses is so intense it’s as though the entire garden was miraculously squeezed through the neck of that lucky little bottle. When the oil dries down it maintains its buxom rosiness and citrus freshness, while the hint of cloves softens and is dusted with a whisper of powder. And, like this unrelenting winter, the scent is incredibly long-lasting. In fact, I have never smelled a rose oil that lasted from one morning to the dawn of the following day, as yours does.

I love taif rose and yours was a good example, clean, spicy, sparkling and with a tasty note that reminded me of ice lollies :) A.R.G UK
I dabbed a bit of the rose on earlier today and mashaAllah it is really good- I am so glad to enjoy the real deal. Compared to the other two oils I have that are labelled as Taif rose this is so much better- there is a citrusy note which I really like, but in the other two it is too harsh as if something has been added, in yours it nice and mellow.

Al Shareef's rose Taif is the nicest rose I have ever tried. It is rich, smooth but a bit sweet, almost goudmand smelling. It's a round fragrance, to my nose it's a complete rose, very beautiful.Thanks again Al Shareef! A.S NETHERLANDS
MashaAllah! Just put a bit of Ta'ifi on, it is the most refined rose ever and like a perfume. Feels like and it is a royal rose. F.A UK
There is only one word that I can use to describe this...delicious. I had only just opened the vial stopper yet the beautiful scent of rose a washed my whole room. Volumous, vibrant, warm rose, with sparkly sweet honey accords, tinges of green guava like leaves. I had a long tiring day and this fragrance freshened me and lifted my mood. Thank you for this wonderful creation. F.H UK
The Taifi Rose is something you at least have to smell once in your life! Y.B UK
