KAYALI Perfume Combos That'll Make You Smell Like A Delicious Dessert!
As you guys know, we’re suckers for fragrance layering. There’s no better flex than being asked what are you wearing? And responding, “oh, it’s just my signature mix…” If you aren’t familiar with the art (yes, art) of perfume cocktailing, it’s actually not a newfound, contemporary technique. It’s an age-old beauty custom that’s existed for centuries in Middle Eastern culture, and involves combining multiple fragrances to create your own unique scent. And when it comes to the “appropriate” quantity of fragrances you can mix up, well, as Cady Heron once said:
Even Mona Kattan, our resident perfume princess and the brain behind perfume brand KAYALI can layer up to three to four scents on a good day… I C O N I Q U É! So since sharing is caring, we’re rounding up some of our current fave KAYALI-based fragrance fusions so all of you KAYALI cuties can smell like decadent desserts this summer.
1. MAJOR Tropical Vibes: KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21, $138, and Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal Eau de Parfum, $135
This duo is a coconut overload in the best way possible. Our Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21, $138, combines the creamiest notes of coconut milk, bourbon vanilla, sandalwood, and sweet white florals. Pair this with Lancôme’s coconut, vanilla, and pink pepper-laced blend, and best believe you’ll smell EDIBLE.
2. Spice Up Your Life: KAYALI Invite Only Amber | 23, $138, and Dossier Ambery Cherry, $49
Three words to describe this pairing? Succulent, seductive, and bold. This is the combo you pull out for a sexy first date. Juicy black cherry, tobacco leaf, chocolate hazelnut, amber resin, and vanilla form the core accords of our Invite Only Amber | 23, $138, and once fused with Dossier’s tantalizing mix of cherry, almond, cinnamon, and plum, you’ll smell like a walking cherry-almond cinnamon roll. Y.U.M.
@fragrancetherapy I can’t get enough of this combo 🔥 I never stuck to one scent for an entire week. #lostcherrydupe #dossier #inviteonly #kayali #perfumetiktok ♬ original sound – Ben Vertz (Mash Art)
3. Candy Apple Delight: KAYALI Eden Juicy Apple | 01 and KAYALI Vanilla | 28, $118 each
This combo is a current TikTok fave — the fresh, fruity and feminine personality of our Eden Juicy Apple | 01, $118, will get you tons of compliments alone, but if you *really* want to turn heads and command attention, couple it with a few spritzes of our Vanilla | 28, $118. The first rule of fragrance layering is to apply the richest scent first and then the lightest. So, begin with Vanilla | 28, $118, (which has notes of vanilla orchid, tonka bean, amber woods, and brown sugar), and then top it off with Eden Juicy Apple | 01, $118, (a burst of fresh red apple, blackcurrant, pink grapefruit, lychee, and wild berries) for the dreamiest, mouth-watering scent.

4. A Cherry & Vanilla Bomb: KAYALI Vanilla | 28, $118, and ZARA Cherry Smoothie, $26
Mona described this duo as “sweet, seductive, mysterious and decadent.” Zara’s Cherry Smoothie, $26, is the ultimate spring/summer scent — a playful and fruity delight with notes of cherry, plum, almond, vanilla, and tonka bean. Add our Vanilla | 28, $118, into the mix for added depth and an extra dose of vanilla. The final scent is warm and deliciously creamy with a somewhat boozy quality that’s just straight-up yummy.

5. For The Boujee Baddies: KAYALI Vanilla | 28, $118, and Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540, $325
This combo legit smells like WEALTH, and it’s best suited for special occasions or when you plan on making BIG moves. The Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540, $325, is a gorgeous unisex blend with the perfect amount of spiciness, woodiness, and sweetness. And despite its deep notes of amber wood, ambergris, fir resin, and cedar, it still manages to be surprisingly airy. Blend it with our Vanilla | 28, $118, for heightened richness and a sweet softness that’s just sublime.

6. A Modern-Day Love Potion: KAYALI Invite Only Amber | 23, $138, and Dior Ambre Nuit, $310
Intoxicating, hypnotic, and seductive AF is what this is. Dior’s Ambre Nuit, $310, is another unisex gem we can’t get enough of. It consists of a heavy dose of amber that’s balanced out by a luxurious dash of Turkish rose. It’s a super-cozy scent that oozes warmth from the very first spray. Couple this with our Invite Only Amber, $138, and you’ll leave behind theee most hypnotic trail. It’s pretty much seduction in a bottle, drenched with notes of black cherry, honey (from Provence, France), Damask rose, and amber resin — a composition that will *literally* stop people in their tracks.
7. Big Regal Energy: KAYALI Vanilla | 28, $118, and Parfums De Marly Delina, $335
This combination came up a lot on TikTok, and it’s 100% worth the hype. For floral fanatics, prepare for a creamy, floral-fruity explosion. Parfums De Marly Delina, $335, showcases notes of bergamot, litchi, Turkish rose, peony, and vanilla, with a heavy base of cedar, cashmere, and incense. Combine this with our Vanilla | 28, $118, for intensified decadence and musk.
