Taif Season perfumery showcases its signature smell 

  • 20-minute Rose Lab crash course shows visitors the basic rules of perfume composition
  • Visitors of the lab have produced more than 6,000 perfumes

TAIF: The Rose Lab, one of Taif Season’s Ward Village events, gave visitors an opportunity to learn about the importance of roses in perfumery.

The Taif rose became the most prominent economic product in the city. The people of Taif introduced the flower to the region, where it flourished in the soil and acquired high economic value.

The lab delivers a training course to introduce visitors to the basic rules of perfume composition in just 20 minutes.

The course concludes with the visitors creating a sample of their fragrance, which they can keep as a gift. Visitors of the lab have produced more than 6,000 perfumes.

Due to the increasing demand for special perfume composition courses, the organizers of the event started an online perfumery training course titled “Our Perfumes from Our Flowers.”

The Rose Lab is one of many events in the Ward Village of the famous Al-Rudaf Park, which are showcasing roses as one of the most important natural products of Taif.

The region is famous for its rich heritage and strategic location on the old incense road, which was traveled by merchants carrying spices and luxury goods from Amman to Taif.

Taif Season, which is one of 11 festivals being held across the Kingdom to promote the country as a global tourist destination, ended on Saturday. It celebrated local culture through scores of activities and events including a rose village, a lively souq and circus shows.

Many accompanying events were held, such as the Rose Marathon, tourist trips and a shopping festival, which contributed to the consolidation of Taif’s status as one of the most important Arab tourist destinations.
