Kayali Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25 Review

Hi, dolls! 
Today I am super excited to talk to you about the newest Kayali release. It's the first fragrance in my collection I bought blindly and it's all because I truly trust Mona Kattan and the whole Kayali team when it comes to fragrances. I really love and enjoy all of their other fragrances and I was so excited to try out this new one out. If you're interested to find out more, let's get right into it!

Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25 was released on Tuesday (27/04/21) and it's the first intense fragrance created by Kayali. The fragrance itself is described as an electric, floral, woody creation. With its luxurious, modern metallic finish the unique bottle epitomises the vibrant and flirtatious juice inside. The number next to the perfume name, in this case the number 25 signifies the number of modifications that it took to get this scent right.

Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Bergamot, Saffron, Royal Lily
Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose, May Rose, Vanilla Orchid, Magnolia
Bottom Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk

The opening of Sweet Diamond gives me a burst of bergamot, pink pepper and saffron and soon after you start to smell the beautiful rose notes. As it dries down, I start to smell the sandalwood, amber and vanilla. I also get a little bit of patchouli and musk but the rose notes definitely stand out the most. Although I love to reapply my fragrances quite often, I decided to test Sweet Diamond seeing as it's an Intense version which means it's meant to last longer. I've put it on to work without actually taking the fragrance with me and after 8 hours, I could still smell it on both my skin and clothes. This is definitely the most long lasting Kayali fragrance and I'm truly loving it more everyday. 


Out of the entire Kayali collection, I think Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper is a softer and sweeter version of Elixir. There is definitely a Middle Eastern vibe to this fragrance, it's almost a floral Oudy scent even though Oud is not one of the notes. I also want to add that although this fragrance has vanilla, it's very minimal and I think even if you dislike vanilla in your fragrances, you will still enjoy this one. 

As previously mentioned, Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper is an Eau De Parfum Intense fragrance containing a super strong concentration of oils. It's crafted with a unique blend of 25% oils that promise a luxuriously rich, long-lasting scent for the ultimate sensorial experience. I stand by this statement as on me this fragrance has lasted 8+ hours without reapplying!

I also have to talk about the bottle of this fragrance - it looks so elegant and classy. I was already obsessed with the Kayali bottles before but this pink version makes it even more unique. It truly stands out from my fragrance collection and I love how beautiful the packaging looks, with the diamond cap making it even more special. 


Final Thoughts
Buying this fragrance blindly was a success! I really do enjoy this scent, I agree with its description that it's spicy yet sweet. Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25 is very long lasting and it's perfect to wear for any occasion, especially on a date night. Personally, I think it's a softer and sweeter version of Elixir and I love to layer the two together. On its own, Sweet Diamond is very unique, the rose notes are the most apparent and I'm very happy to have it in my collection. I can't wait to see what Kayali releases next!

    1. Thanks Shubh! The price increase comes from the fact it's an intense version, so longer lasting etc. I know it's on the pricey side but it's definitely worth it! Hope you get to try it xx

    The way you explain the scent I think I will like it. I saw online comments comparing it to one of my favorites, Nina’s L'Extase Rose Absolue. It’s the rose for me🌹 Amazing review as always and the bottle is stunning. Well done ❤️

  13. If it wasn’t for your blog reviews I wouldn’t even have heard of Kayali. They have really pretty packaging for their perfumes, eye catching for sure. Not really sure about the roses, I prefer much sweeter scents. Great review! xx

    1. I'm glad I can share such a great fragrance brand with you. I truly stand by my reviews when it comes to all products I review but especially Kayali. Their fragrances are amazing and I use them every single day. Good thing about their fragrances is that they're all different and unique in their own ways, so if you don't like the new one, you might still like the others! xo

  19. I would 100% buy this for the bottle alone lmao, it looks so stunning. The smell sounds intense but nice, which I like for days when I don't want to or can't re-apply my perfume. I need to try this one!
