”Choice of perfume is self expression, it can give you confidence, it can manipulate reality and take you places you have never dreamed of. Perfume unlocks the memory and touches the soul, making you feel happy, sensual and alive. It makes you feel young, beautiful, sexy and smart. ”
I first came across the Niche perfumes when I was doing a research about them to try for this winter. Since then I became very interested into them and now I already have my favourites. With Valentines Day just around the corner, I thought it would be a best time to show you how you can surprise your loved ones with a very different, original and amazing niche fragrance.
I was lucky enough to receive Ormonde Jayne eau de parfum is Ta’if Elixir
Ormonde Jayne is a London-based perfume house founded by Linda Pilkington in 2000. Begun as a line of scented candles, the house now makes fine perfumes as well as bath and body products. Each product is passionately created by Linda and bottled and packaged by hand in her London workshop.
Ta’if Elixir was created in 2019. The inspiration of this Ormonde Jayne perfume is Ta’if, which is a town rising 5000ft above the shores of the Red Sea and overlooking the Arabian desert. An intoxicating rose scent, the fragrance promises a vivacious blend of saffron, pink pepper, jasmine and amber for a daring, sophisticated aroma to add to collections.
Transcending the boundaries of the original, Ormonde Jayne’s Elixir collection renews a selection of their iconic fragrances within a more powerful and concentrated form. The result is a familiar but intimately different scent. Drawing inspiration from the Damascen rose, Ta’if encounters a deep and sensual passage of floral and oriental nuances, combining into a romantic flourish of exotic beauty. Rosy pink pepper highlights the top of the fragrance, combined with dates and saffron for a sweet and spiced scent. The heart centres itself around a beautiful Taif rose, adding freesia, jasmine and orange blossoms for a beautiful floral accord. The base finishes in a duet of amber and broom.
- Top notes: Pink pepper, Saffron, Dates
- Middle notes: Rose oil, Freesia, Orange flower absolute, Jasmine
