Kayali Musk | 12 Review

Hi, dolls! 
I'm super excited that I was finally able to finish off my Kayali collection by getting their Musk fragrance. If you're interested to find out more about it, let's get right into the review!

Read my previous Kayali reviews:

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: Freesia, Lotus
Middle Notes: Musk, Jasmine
Base Notes: Vanilla, Sandalwood

Musk | 12 is described as emanating power and confidence beginning with magnificent notes of Lotus Flower, Freesia and Sheer Jasmine. Laced with exquisite Musk, the scent shines a light on one of the world's mysterious ingredients. A blend of Vanilla and Sandalwood gives this distinguished fragrance an enchanting and tempered soul. The number next to the perfume name, in this case the number 12 signifies the number of modifications that it took to get the scent right.

The opening gives me a burst of jasmine and vanilla. I find this Musk fragrance to be super powdery - it's a beautiful warm fragrance but definitely too powdery for me and it's not a fragrance I would usually wear. I've also noticed that this fragrance is not as long lasting as the other Kayali fragrances that stay on for super long time - Elixir, Deja Vu and Vanilla. Similarly to all other Kayali fragrances, Musk is also an Eau de Parfum. 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.

In each of my Kayali review I love to mention how beautiful and classy the Kayali bottles look. The packaging is super elegant and the diamond cap makes it even more unique. This is not a cheap fragrance, so I'm glad that you get a luxurious bottle with it.


Final Thoughts
When I first came across Kayali fragrances I knew that I wouldn't be the biggest fan of the Musk fragrance. This has to be my least favourite out of the entire Kayali collection simply because I find it too powdery and too musky and just doesn't sit well with my preferences. However, it's still a beautiful scent that I think many will enjoy, so if you do like it that's also cool! I'm a bit disappointed that this fragrance isn't as long lasting as the others, especially Elixir, Vanilla and Deja Vu because it means you have to reapply it all the time and it's definitely not a cheap fragrance. 

Let me know down in the comments if you have tried any of the Kayali fragrances and if so, which is your favourite? Would you like me to rate them all in a separate blog post? xo

  2. I never understand why fragrances have a top note, it only lasts about 10 minutes so it's not the fragrance you'll be giving off when you're wearing it

    1. I agree! It makes it difficult to test it in the shop because it changes after a while!
