You know the bliss you feel as you step out on the terrace of your hotel room and you close your eyes to soak up the sun and breathe the warm tropical breeze? Iraqi-American beauty guru Mona Kattan bottled up these feeling of happiness and utter relaxation in her new latest KAYALI luxe fragrance, Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 Eau de Parfum Intense.


“I made the final touches to Utopia during the midst of lockdown in May 2020. I had an intense desire to create a scent that would take me away to a sunshine filled island reminiscent of all my favorite holiday trips. !”  says Mona. Reflecting her deep love of sweet vanilla and her obsession with coconut, the new Eau de Parfum Intense transports you to a sun-soaked island, evoking the sweet, heady warmth of beachy summer days.


The Inspiration

For the second juice in her line of Eau de Parfum Intense fragrances, Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 was inspired by Mona’s passion for white flowers and gourmand notes, with vanilla being her ultimate favorite. With travel being tricky in 2021, the Global President of Huda Beauty wanted to design a sensual and luminous summer scent that would instantly transport you to your favorite holiday spot. Co-created with Gabriele Chelariu, senior perfumer at Firmenich, this new fragrance opens with the irresistible allure of fresh Honeysuckle and Pear Blossoms, and is enhanced with the luminosity of Italian Lemon. Together they glow atop a billowing white floral bouquet of Jasmine Sambac, Gardenia Petals, and Tuberose, while a soft sensuality emerges from the base as Natural Sandalwood and earthy Patchouli achieve weightlessness with a touch of Musk. And finally, Creamy Coconut Milk whipped together with succulent Vanilla Bourbon complete the fragrance’s irresistible signature and enveloping comfort that will be this summer’s warm woody must-have.

Mona’s Tips + Layering Recommendations

Spray Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21 on your pulse points, or if you want a more subtle scent, try a quick spritz on fresh hair, or clothes. Mona likes to spray her hair towel before drying her hair, leaving a subtle and delicate sillage.
