One of my favorite things about visiting my parents in the Gulf Coast is…the smell! Riding bikes or driving with the windows down, there’s always a warm, tropical wind that I wish I could bottle up and take back to LA with me. Well, someone did bottle it up, and Kai Fragrance was born. Gaye Straza was inspired to create Kai from her summers spent in Hawaii, where the smell of exotic flowers mix with the salty sea breeze.
Kai has perfected the light, simple scent of white tropical flowers : gardenia, plumeria, pikake + jasmine [ my faaaavorite! ]. Trust me, once you take a whiff, you’ll be hooked. And don’t worry, you can buy almost everything in Kai’s signature scent…shea body butter, shampoo + conditioner, candles and even deodorant!
Until recently, Kai only sold one fragrance [ the one I rambled on about up there ^ ]. Now Kai is stepping up their game with a second scent, rose! If you aren’t a tropical rainforest type of girl [ or guy ], how about a “running through an endless field of roses” vibe?! Yes pleaseeeee.
SHOP KAI FRAGRANCE ROSE SCENT
The best, best, best part about Kai is their commitment to do the right thing. They’re made in the USA, packaged with recycled materials and 100% cruelty free. No bunnies or beagles were harmed in creating this heavenly scent, thank G! If you’re wondering why buying cruelty free is SO important, check out this video of lab research dogs seeing grass for the first time. Warning : it’s a tear jerker!
Oh, and…Kai products are vegan and paraben, sulfate, phthalate, phosphate + gluten free. Woo freaking hoo!
