Summer In A Bottle: Escape With Our KAYALI Utopia Vanilla | 21 Scent


KAYALI utopia

Hi guys, it’s Mona here, AKA the perfume princess. I’m SO excited to reveal our newest baby in the KAYALI family… KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21. It’s the seventh gem in our intoxicating lineup of scents, and this fragrance may be one of my all-time favorites. I made the final touches to this scent during Dubai’s 24-hour lockdown last year, and I really wanted to create a sun-drenched, solar scent that transported you to a dreamy destination and filled you with that euphoric vacation feeling.

KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 combines my love for gourmand and white floral fragrances, and I couldn’t be more obsessed with this final scent. It’s luxurious, warm, sensual, and truly irresistible. It features some of my favorite notes, from sweet vanilla bourbon and sensual coconut milk to romantic floral notes like gardenia and jasmine. I like to think of it as summer in a (very beautiful) bottle. Every time I spritz it on my skin, I’m transported to my very own utopia – it’s the ultimate summer escape.

KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21: The Scent

A juicy, warm creation, this summer juice will wrap your skin in the most sensual, lust-worthy scent that’ll effortlessly escort you to your own utopia. Like a sensual embrace, this spicy summer elixir will make you feel confident, empowered, and free. KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 combines rich, indulgent notes of vanilla bourbon and creamy coconut milk with an extraordinary blend of white flowers. These dreamy notes are enhanced by the allure of fresh honeysuckle, pear blossom, and luminous Italian lemon to add a sweet, sparkling element to the fragrance. Later, a soft sensuality emerges from the earthy base notes of sandalwood and patchouli, offset by the weightless touch of musk.

It truly is such a sexy, summertime scent – total hot girl summer vibes.

I can’t forget to mention the stunning bottle; the bottle shape and cap are the classic KAYALI signature style, but it’s wrapped in a semi-opaque rose gold foil. It’s so chic and luxe!

KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21: The Inspiration

When my team and I created this fragrance it was peak lockdown in May 2020. I missed traveling so much, and I wanted to recreate that magical vacation feeling of pure and utter bliss. You know when you step off the plane and feel the sun on your skin or when you finally feel the sand between your toes and have saltwater in your hair? That perfect peaceful, tropical vacation vibe! I wanted this fragrance to fill the room with happiness and transport you to your very own utopia. The result is an amazing sun-soaked fragrance evoking the sweet, ethereal warmth of long summer days and even sweeter summer nights.

KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21: Fragrance Notes

As soon as you spritz this fragrance on your skin, you’ll feel that euphoric summer feeling. Warm, floral notes of honeysuckle, pear and sparkling lemon are paired with gourmand notes like coconut milk to create an invigorating first spritz moment. Together, they glow atop a white floral bouquet of jasmine, gardenia, and tuberose, which pair effortlessly with woody notes of patchouli, musk, and vanilla bourbon. It’s the ultimate warm, tropical fragrance that’ll make you feel empowered and sexy all summer long.

Top notes: Honeysuckle, pear blossom, Italian lemon, coconut milk

Middle notes: Jasmine Sambac, gardenia, tuberose, ambrette

Bottom notes: Sandalwood, patchouli heart, vanilla bourbon, musks

The Formula: An Eau de Parfum Intense


Just like our KAYALI Déjà Vu White Flower | 57 and Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25, Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 is an Eau de Parfum Intense fragrance, crafted with a unique blend of oils that promise a rich, long-lasting, sun-soaked scent that’ll last from morning until night.

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.

My Fave Fragrance Combos

3-Mona-Utopia (1)

When we made our first KAYALI collection, we created all of our fragrances to be layered and worn together as well as 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:

Looking to spice things up? Layer Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 on top of Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25 to create an unexpected yet harmonious blend of solar, sweet, and spicy notes that’ll make you feel powerful, sensual, and irresistible.

Layer Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 and Déjà Vu White Flower | 57 to create a luxurious, romantic mix that’ll remind you of the feeling of falling in love. It’s the ultimate date night combination.

Combine Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 with MUSK | 12  to create the most intoxicating scent. It’s the most morish, sensual gourmand combination that’ll leave you (and your beau) wanting more.

Our KAYALI Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 perfume in 50ml ($100, £79, €88Euros, AED 420) will be available to shop online at on June 25th. I hope you guys love it as much as I do.
