KAYALI, the fragrance line by Mona Kattan has revealed its latest addition Invite Only Amber | 23 Eau de Parfum Intense.
The rich fragrance invites you to indulge in this deep, sensual sent that explores the alluring facets of amber with a delicious gourmand twist.
To create this exclusive perfume Mona Kattan worked with the renowned fragrance house, Firmenich and their Principal Perfumer, Ilias Ermenidis, to create a bold, hypnotic scent that would leave a mesmerizing sillage. Mona has been obsessed with amber scents since her fragrance journey began, experimenting with an endless list of gourmand notes to achieve her dream scent. This luxurious elixir embraces the rich heritage of her Middle Eastern roots while also giving the wearer a feeling of decadence, desirability and fearlessness.
The rich scent features top notes of Black Cherry, Honey de Provence, Tobacco Leaf and Chocolate Hazelnut Accord for an intense beginning. As the scent dries down it reveals a bouquet of Rose Centifolia and Rose Damascena at the heart, faceted with Cistus Leaf and the sweet aroma of Tobacco leaves for even more depth and intrigue. At the base, precious Oud Oil and sensual Sandalwood Fir absolute combine in textured warmth while Cypriol adds a spicy, woody nuance for a multi-dimensional impression. Mysterious and intense, Amber Resin and Benzoin add a powerful allure, while soft and sensual Musks, with a touch of creamy, naturally sourced Madagascan Vanilla create an extraordinary, long-lasting mystique.
“I have always found amber to be one of the most sexy, intense and addictive notes in fragrance.” Said Kattan. “From the minute I smelled my first amber perfume, I knew that I wanted to create a scent of my own with this enticing ingredient!”
She continued: “For Invite Only Amber | 23, I wanted something opulent and irresistible – tasty notes of voluptuous dark cherry, creamy and decadent chocolate hazelnut, smooth honey de Provence, sweet vanilla and precious oud – the combination is rich, provocative and sumptuous. In all honesty, this juice is literally ‘sexiness in a bottle’”
The fragrance entrepreneur recommends wearing Invite Only Amber | 23 on your pulse points (on the wrists or behind the ears) for a lingering diffusion, or spray on your clothes before head out for a more intense impression.
