Life, 1967:
"A delicately balanced blend of verdant florals, sophisticated herbs and other rare and rarely used scents, hauntingly beautiful Taji is what traditional perfumes are not. Taji is at last, a perfume that lasts. Taji perfume, perfume oil, cologne and complete collection of delights for body and bath."

Vogue, 1967:
"Taji has rediscovered this formula and, inspired by it, present Taji Chiffon Spray Cologne — for women who want to feel like English flowers, while others are wilting away. Taji Chiffon Spray Cologne is starting summer now at fine stores, $5.00."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Taji was discontinued by Shulton, but a version is now made and distributed by Hazel Bishop New York.
