Kai Rose Oil by Kai by Gaye Straza 2017 + GIVEAWAY




Hey APJ,

A few weeks ago I bought a couple of bottles from LuckyScent and asked them to send me their newest stuff as samples. I figured they are far better arbiters of the best of new fragrance than I am. It turned out to be a really good idea. I have dabbed them already and come up with a couple I’d like to wear fully and review. YAY! Don’t you love getting the low down on the newest?

Kai Rose Oil by Kai by Gaye Straza 2017


Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Rose absolute, White blossoms, Gardenia

Original 1999 Kai? Remember it? The glorious white floral that reminded a new generation of the BWFs existence? Gaye Straza created original Kai to remember the scent of her childhood holidays in Hawaii. At the time she had a boutique in Malibu, California. When she sold the store she kept the fragrance line and expended the original Kai scent product range. This is the first new Scent release from the brand since then.

ROSES! How I love roses. There’s currently one on my window sill that I was given 10 days ago and it’s still blooming happily. Well, maybe heading towards the end now but each morning it supplies glorious scent, soft but sweet and jammy rose scent.

Kai rose is a little bit similar. A clean, sweet, jammy rose, smells lilac or deep pink. You can even smell the soft velvet touch of rose petals as you bury your face in the blooms. A dry rose, not dewy at all, even a bit overblown and ready to drop all its petals.

Slowly the white flowers emerge and I’m reminded of original Kai but tempered all the way through with rose. Lovely.

Sillage is low and projection moderate. Can’t wait for the EdP which will be much more diffuse.

LuckyScent has $48/4ml rollerball & Samples

1 x 0.7ml Kai Rose Oil LuckyScent Sample (1/2 full from testing)

  1. I have never (gasp!) encountered Kai. But I’ve long wanted to, and I love a good jammy rose. Follow by email. 🙂


  2. I follow you via Portia’s posts on FB, buy just recently signed up for emails (I didn’t know you discussed pets, too! Bonus!). I wear Kai, esp. in winter as a pick me up, reminding me of summer when my gardenias are in bloom.


  3. Follow by email, and as a BWF devotee, am surprised I’ve never tried Kai. Would love to give the rose flanker a shot, thanks APJ!


  4. Do I wear Kai? Hell yeah I do! I am utterly in love with the original kai! I have the perfume oil, the fragrance, a back up of the fragrance, the body lotion and shampoo and conditioner. The candle just finished a few weeks ago.
    Gardenia is my favourite flower. Sooo many memories growing up in the islands come to life when I wear kai. I will be devasted if the discontinued the original kai!

    A new perfume oil from kai though? You have me excited with a pounding heart!
    I wonder when it will come to Mecca? Since they stock the original kai there.

    Thank for bringing this to my attention Portia! I’m so excited! xx


  5. I follow via email and Facebook. I never heard of Kai!!!! I adore ADORE rose scents. One of my faves is an old perfume I wore in high school: Perfumer’s Workshop Tea Rose.


  6. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of Kai, but this rose sounds delicious. I love roses, and I’m still looking for a rose perfume that reproduces the feel of those soft, velvety petals against my cheek. Thanks for the giveaway! I follow by email.


  7. I follow by email. I have worn the original Kai and would love to smell this rose fragrance. Thanks for the draw.


  8. I follow by email, and I used to wear Kai all the time, I actually
    need to dig it out for the summer…
    Thank you!


  9. Hi! This sounds so beautiful. I remember the name Kai! But never tried it. 😦 first time for everything though, right?? 🙂 I follow by email. Thank you for offering this giveaway.


  10. I have tried Kai as a perfume oil, preferred it as the perfume (maybe EDP?), and thought about getting the candle but found it to be not as strongly scented as I had hoped 😦 But rose, I love rose 🙂 I follow by email, thank you!


  11. I follow via Feedly RSS

    Though I can’t say I’ve ever heard of Kai so if I won then I would welcome the introduction. I do like a good rose! 🙂
