Kayali Déjà Vu | 57 Fragrance Review

by - Wednesday, August 05, 2020

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!

Kayali Citrus | 08 Review (coming soon!)

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. 

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.

Déjà vu is the newest addition to the Kayali line and only comes in 50ml, while the other 4 scents are also available in 100ml. 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.

Mona's tips:
• Spritz a couple of times on hair or pulse points, or both, to make your perfume last longer throughout the day
• Spray your fragrance into your hairbrush before brushing your hair
• Spray the scent on your hair towel before drying her hair, the result is a subtle hint of the fragrance that will follow you around all day.
Mona’s favorite mixes:
The KAYALI collection is all about layering to create your own, unique signature scent.
1 - Layer KAYALI Vanilla | 28 underneath Déjà vu White Flower | 57 for a sweet, opulent and sophisticated scent that leaves a lasting allure.
2 - Layer KAYALI Déjà vu White Flower | 57 underneath Musk | 12 for a sweet, juicy uplifting scent that will elevate your mood in the morning. This blend is perfect for daily wearing.

PS - I'm obsessed with layering my Kayali fragrances! My favourite is definitely the mix recommended by Mona - layering Vanilla underneath Déjà vu.

Final Thoughts
I fell in love with Kayali fragrances when I first tried it and I am obsessed ever since. Although all 5 scents are different, I really enjoy all of them. Out of the 5, I think I would probably only pass on the Musk, however if I ever do get it, I will definitely review it. I am excited to see my Kayali collection grow and can't wait for their new releases! I would recommend everyone to check out Kayali fragrances and pick a scent that works for you. I did a little quiz to help you decide which scent you should go for, so enjoy checking it out! 

Let me know in the comments if you have tried the Kayali fragrances yet and if so, which is your favourite? My favourite has to be Vanilla but I truly love them all! Check out my other Kayali reviews linked above.
