Kayali Déjà Vu | 57 Fragrance Review

Hi, dolls! 
If you follow me on my socials, you have probably noticed that I am currently obsessed with all the Kayali perfumes. As I decided to do more fragrance reviews, I wanted to do separate reviews for all of my Kayali perfumes, so you can find out more about the one you're interested in. In today's review, I will be reviewing the newest Kayali addition - Déjà vu White Flower fragrance. If you're interested to find out more about it, let's get right into the review!

This post may contain affiliate links meaning that if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission at no extra cost to you. However, my reviews/opinions on products are always 100% honest and I'll only recommend items that I love!

Kayali means my imagination in Arabic and it was created by both Huda and Mona Kattan, who in fact is known as the Perfume Princess. I honestly think that if we're going to trust anyone when it comes to fragrance, it should be Mona. If you follow her on social media, you must know how big her perfume collection is and also, her perfume knowledge. I knew Kayali would be amazing from the start and it definitely didn't disappoint. Kayali's tagline is every layer of me and it actually focuses on layering fragrances to create your own, personal scent. 

Top Notes: Gardenia, Nectarine, Pear
Middle Notes: Tuberose, Indian Jasmine, Orange Blossom
Base Notes: Patchouli, Tahitian Vanilla, Sandalwood, Cashmere Wood

Déjà vu White Flower is described as a seductive, yet warm and comforting scent that is steeped in nostalgia and reminiscent of that memory of falling in love yet also laying the foundations for new exciting memories to come; memories that you can revisit with every spritz. Evoking the dreamy spirit of nostalgia, the warm and sultry scent is a fresh, bouquet of white florals. Déjà vu White Flower | 57 combines aromatic sandalwood and fruity notes of white nectarine and orange flower, creating a sensual scent that truly seduces the senses. The notes of jasmine, tuberose, patchouli and gardenia come together in a seductive and unique blend. The number next to the perfume name, in this case the number 57 signifies the number of modifications that it took to get the scent right.

The opening gives me a burst of patchouli and jasmine and just as it's labelled it is a white floral fragrance. It's truly a beautiful scent, and although I am obsessed with my Vanilla, I'm starting to love Déjà vu just as much! While I found Elixir to be a night-out fragrance, Déjà vu White Flower is definitely something you can wear on a daily basis or a night out because the scent is super beautiful. The scent is heavy in a sense that you don't need loads of it to smell it - it is an Eau de Parfum after all. Eau de Parfum has the highest concentration of fragrance - generally having a fragrance concentration of between 15% and 20%. On average, eau de Parfum should last from four to five hours, if not more. This differs from Eau de Toilette which has a fragrance concentration of between 5% and 15%. Eau de Toilette is definitely one of the most popular types of fragrance and it is definitely cheaper than eau de Parfum (in case some of you were wondering why Kayali's price is high) but it will normally only last for two to three hours.

 I also have to talk about the bottle of this fragrance - it looks so elegant and classy. I love how beautiful the packaging looks and the diamond cap makes it even more unique. On many occasions you get an expensive fragrance in simple packaging but with Kayali you not only get a high quality of fragrance but also a stunning packaging that makes it even more exciting to have. I appreciate the fact that it's possible to get the Kayali testers before actually making a purchase, although not every shop will have them, because that makes it easier for you to find your perfect scent. This is especially important if you cannot afford to buy all 5 and want to ensure you make the right decision. Testers can also help with layering, as it allows you to try different layers and see which scents would work together for you to create your perfect scent. Sadly, I didn't know the Kayali testers were a thing until I visited the Huda Beauty pop up and was gifted one, and when I looked online to see if I could maybe get more, people were selling it for crazy amount of money.

Final Thoughts
I fell in love with Kayali when I first tried their fragrances and so far, I love them all! Deja Vu is definitely a lovely addition to my collection being so far the most worn fragrance from Kayali by me. It's one you can wear everyday or for any special occasion because it's so unique and beautiful. This is the one Kayali fragrance I would say is the safest to blind buy for anyone as I think everyone would enjoy it!

    1. Let me know once you try it how you like it XO

  5. To be honest its the first time Im hearing of Kayali but your quiz has been fun to participate - my results:

    Kayali Elixir | 11

    An ultra-addictive scent, ELIXIR | 11 opens with sweet notes of Red Apple and Rose Petal Essence, before revealing a floral heart of Rose Centifolia and uplifting touches of Jasmine Sambac from India. Adding depth to the romantic fragrance, warm woody notes of Indonesian Patchouli and velvety Amber are enveloped by accents of Vanilla, leaving behind a long-lasting trail.

    1. If you ever get to try it out let me know how you liked it XO
