NEW LOVE | KAI ROSE PERFUME OIL


Fragrance has never been a category that excites me, it is the one aspect of the beauty realm that I haven't quite dived into but since the start of this year I have definitely developed a keener interest. I want to smell nice. I want people to compliment me and tell me I smell good. I think that is universally a great compliment to receive and plus scent is such a comforting, personal thing. How cool is it that certain fragrances remind of you of different people. Why would you not want a signature scent? My key trouble with standard perfumes is that they finish so quickly, plus they can either be too light meaning you have to spray it again every 3-4 hours or too heavy which means you feel like you are asphyxiating yourself first thing in the morning. The answer to all my prayers came in this surprisingly tiny clear bottle from Cult Beauty and is simply called Rose Perfume Oil by Kai (£40)


Personally, I wouldn't describe it as a rose scent at all. I detest rose-scented products. This perfume oil smells both fresh and floral at the same time with a strange kind of warmth that I find really comforting. It contains the scents of a lot of white flowers and cucumber and is designed to evoke the fresh fragrance of an English country garden. I think the touch of rose adds that feminine note. The best part is that it will last on your skin until you shower pretty much. It's fantastic. The small bottle has a tiny roller ball applicator and you just apply it on your pulse points. I like to apply it on my wrists and neck. It is not overpowering but is still there, if you know what I mean. It is so convenient to carry around, especially in the summer when the streets start to heat up and I don't know about you but where I live the scent of weed permeating the air is really strong in the summer so having this on hand helps a lot with that. I am so keen to try out the original Kai Perfume Oil, I will definitely be purchasing that once I finish this. It does cost a whopping £40 for 3.6ml which is ridiculous when you see the size of a bottle, but I do think it would take months and months to finish it and more importantly I have never smelt a scent like this one before. It is exactly what I look for in a fragrance, they have a spray perfume in the same scent as well. Such a brilliant find, I received this product from Cult Beauty but this review, like all my reviews, is my own opinion. If it sucked, I would tell you. I hope you all had a brilliant bank holiday weekend. Thank you for reading. Take care.

  2. I'm personally a huge perfume lover, but I understand what you mean when you say that most perfumes are either too light or too overpowering , only a few fragrances succeed in being light and long-wearing at the same time!I've never heard of this one, but it sounds lovely! Lovely review (fragrance reviews are my favourite to read)!

  5. The only perfume oils that I have ever tried are from The Body Shop and they were okay. Not my favourite because I don't find them to last as long.

  11. I look for the same thing when it comes to perfumes, I want something that isn't too strong, but lasts throughout the day, enough for people to smell it! I've never heard of this perfume before, it sounds lovely. I love that it doesn't smell heavily of florals, which I also don't like. I'll have to keep this in mind and test it out myself. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great day so far!

    XO,

  12. It sounds really good, when I was younger I was all about super sweet feagances but now I use florals the most, I have never tried an oil perfume but sounds like it lasts way more than just regular perfume. I also agree about the rose scent, I though I was the only one, haha! I am kind of ashamed of that because roses are actually my favorite flowers but the smell is a no no for me.

    1. Me too, I was obsessed with smelling like vanilla and tbh I still kind of am haha, yeah the scent is odd to me. It doesn't smell fresh almost cloying? But I do love roses, they are so beautiful and romantic x
