Get Ready For Our Most Seductive Scent Yet: KAYALI Invite Only Amber | 23


Hi guys, it’s Mona here, AKA the perfume princess. Today I can finally reveal the fragrance I have been dreaming about creating for so long; our new KAYALI Invite Only Amber | 23. It’s the eighth perfume in our juicy lineup of truly addictive scents. I know I say it every time, but this may be one of my all-time faves, and I know Huda feels the same. As soon as I spritz this rich, decadent amber scent onto my skin, I feel SO sexy and powerful. It literally never fails to make me feel confident and fill the room with positive energy. I couldn’t be more obsessed.


From the moment we created KAYALI, I had always dreamed of creating an amber scent – it’s one of my favorite fragrance notes because it’s just so powerful and luxurious. Over the past few years, I’ve been on a journey of self-love and learned to embrace all aspects of myself, including my sexier side, so it felt like the perfect time to work on my ultimate confidence-boosting juice. It’s actually a genderless fragrance and smells sensational on everyone. Whenever I smell it on my boo, I think it’s soooo sexy! I can’t wait for you guys to try this too. Here are all the deets:

The Scent


Invite Only Amber | 23 is literally sexiness in a bottle! The sweet, voluptuous notes of amber resin, Madagascan vanilla, and black cherry create the most decadent, scrumptious fragrance. The juice envelops you with a mouthwatering and addictive gourmand scent that’s literally so delicious you’ll want to eat it. Sweet black cherry mingles with succulent honey, paired with rich chocolate hazelnut accord and sweet vanilla. Opulent notes of rose Damascena create a flirtatious whisper that’s wrapped in empowering notes of tobacco and citrus. Immediately drawing you in, the scents grows in intensity over time before it reveals the base notes of rich, warm amber, spicy sandalwood, earthy patchouli, and decadent oud. It’s seductive, bold, and hypnotic.

The Inspiration

This fragrance is truly a celebration of the journey I’ve been on over the last two years. Invite Only Amber | 23 is to me what Sasha Fierce is to Beyonce… my alter ego! When I wear this perfume, I can feel my true, bold, unapologetic, and empowered self really come through. It makes me feel confident and sexy and helps me embrace another side of myself. Perfume is truly my weapon – something I’ve loved and obsessed over for years – and because amber was always that empowering scent to me, I knew this was the perfect time to really capture my growth and sensuality in a bottle.

This is truly the amber fragrance I have always dreamed of making: a rich, provocative gourmand juice that’s unforgettable and will have you going back for more every time you smell it. I’m so obsessed with the final result, and I love that it’s a really gender-neutral fragrance, which to me adds a very seductive, provocative vibe.

The Formula

My Tips:

  • Spritz a couple of times on your hair or pulse points (or both) to leave an addictive trail of fragrance throughout the day.
  • Lightly spray your fragrance onto your hairbrush before brushing your hair.
  • Spray the scent on your hair towel before drying your hair; the result is a subtle hint of the fragrance that will follow you around all day.

When we made our first KAYALI collection, we created all of our fragrances to be layered and worn together or on their own. The art of layering is a very traditional Middle Eastern concept that I wanted to share with the world. I love how you can create a totally unique scent that matches your mood. So naturally, whenever we create a new fragrance, I love to experiment with different layering combos. Here are my faves:

Invite Only Amber |23 and Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25: Blend the warm and irresistible accords of amber with the spicy notes of Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper for a magnetic, sexy signature.

Invite Only Amber |23 and Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21: Combine the richness and provocative accords of amber with the soft and cocooning coconut scent of Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 for an enchanting and unforgettable scent.

Invite Only Amber |23 and Vanilla |28: Looking for an overdose of “gourmandize”? Mix both Amber and Vanilla and feel that immediate intimate, sweet and delicious scent enveloping your body and softening your current mood.
