Ormonde Jayne Ta'if was launched in 2004, created by the line's owner and founder, Linda Pilkington. Ormonde Jayne Ta'if is inspired by the Ta'if rose, a rose grown in Arabic countries. Ormonde Jayne Ta'if starts out lighter than the notes would suggest, with a little date note, and then the saffron blows in, adding darkness and depth. It is sultry and elegant; a complex scent that lasts a long time and gets more interesting as the hours wear on, changing so much you never really get tired of it.
When Luca Turin reviewed Ormonde Jayne Ta'if, back when he had a blog, he used this quote from a Raymond Chandler book to describe Ormonde Jayne Ta'if:
Wear it, as Raymond Chandler said, when the desert wind blows, "one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge".
