kai by gaye straza – bringing you back to the tropics

Oh my gosh, there is just one word now and that is kai.

I was given a little bottle of kai’s body lotion and I was keeping it for one of my holidays, but now, no way. This body lotion literally brings you back on the beach sipping a cocktail and looking at the calm waves, with light wind blowing through your hair.

The scent makes you feel like instead of a computer screen at work you’re looking at something like this:


It creates the vision of jasmines, gardenias and Tahitian tiare. Be it in French Polynesia or Mauritius or anywhere else you wish you could be (just ignore the pouring rain outside, or hey, it must be tropical!)


Reading a bit more about the brand itself, it turns out that is it in fact enormously popular amongst ladies on the screen starting with Pamela Anderson and ending with Oprah Winfrey. I do not blame them. So far I’ve been keeping my eyes on Gardenia Petale by Van Cleef & Arpels, however now I might just go get myself that kai perfume, particularly as it saves me a sweet £56!


So what actually is the kai scent? It is an infusion of flowers like gardenia, jasmine, tuberose and lily. The cucumber essential oil adds a greenness to balance the floral bouquet. Welcome to the tropics..

If you feel like you long for the tropical scents from your previous holiday, I’d definitely recommend kai’s products. Especially the body lotion as honestly, think I’ve never seen such a rich, but easily absorbing body lotion.  Obviously, it’s also parabens and preservative free.
