Kai Eau de Parfum Review

Purchased by me at Barneys New York. Affiliate link at bottom.
My love for Kai knows no bounds, and it was only a matter of time before I cracked under the pressure of my unmitigated adoration and bought their Eau de Parfum. I could only spray it so many times at my sister's house before taking the plunge- so on one of my last trips to Barneys I finally purchased it!

I am utterly enchanted by the Eau de Parfum! The scent itself is a slightly lighter version of their perfume oil (reviewed here) and it is lovely all by itself, but I often layer them together in order to add depth to the scent, and to increase the longevity of the wear time.

The exotic scent of Kai’s signature perfume oil, delicately blended into an Eau de Parfum spray. The Kai aroma is a fresh and intoxicating blend of gardenias and white exotic flowers.

Why the wait?  "We wanted to wait until we found the right balance of ingredients for our first eau de parfum,” said Gaye Rappaport, founder and chairman of kai. “With this new release, we were finally able to capture the signature kai scent in an eau de parfum spray that customers have been asking for.  Finding the right balance between the fragrance and the other ingredients is so important in a spray. We didn’t just want another eau de toilette; we wanted an eau de parfum that embodied the subtle nature of our signature perfume oil.  It took a while, but we’ve finally gotten it right.”

The bottle is crafted from French glass and boxed in signature clean kai packaging. The eau de parfum epitomizes the pure philosophy of kai: breath, life, flow.

Made in the USA.  Kai uses recyclable packaging is paraben, sulfate free and never tested on animals.

Ingredients: SD Alcohol 40b, Fragrance, Water, PEG-8, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid.

Overall assessment: I think that it is painfully obvious at this point that I am completely in love with Kai products, and this Eau de Parfum is a delightful addition to my coveted collection!

$76.00 for 1.7 oz. from Nordstrom and Barneys New York. Affiliate links. Purchased by me.
