In 2019 Huda and Mona Kattan launched Kayali, a luxury fragrance brand that is available at The Beauty Editor in-store and online! Kayali means "my imagination" in Arabic and the fragrances are the brainchild of both Huda and her sister Mona. "Mona has always been obsessed with perfume and once she got me into fragrance layering I knew we had to turn this into a lifestyle," Huda told Vogue.co.uk.
The collection consist of: Vanilla | 28, Citrus | 08, Musk | 12, Elixir | 11, Déjà vu White Flower | 57, Utopia Vanilla Coco 21 | Intense, Invite Only Amber | 23, Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25 Intense, Eden Juice Apple | 01, as well as a selection of dual-ended rollerball perfumes that are perfect for travel. The fragrances were designed to be worn alone or layered together. Mona and Huda want to educate shoppers about scents, the olfactive families and how the different notes compliment each other. They've compiled some really useful guides to layering on the Huda Beauty website here.
