Huda Beauty Kayali Invite Only Amber 23 was launched in 2021. An amber spicy created by Ilias Ermenidis and Firmenich. It has notes of tobacco leaf, sour cherry, honey, chocolate, hazelnut, ceylon cinnamon, May rose, damask rose, citrus, amber, vanilla, agarwood (oud), benzoin, sandalwood, cypriol oil (nagarmotha), patchouli and musk.
This is the edp, eau de parfum.
Fragrantica - "Ambers are one of my favourite accords, adding tobacco, vanilla and honey is the dream. I don't sense much cherry, which is a good thing for me, because as much as I enjoy consuming the fruits, wearing a cherry scented perfume is usually an uncomfortable experience.
Invite only is well blended, just the right amount of sweetnes, projection and longevity and as someone mentioned, it lingers on clothing for days.
Judging from comments, it seems like skin chemistry also matters and it doesn't smell uniform on everyone, so not a safe blind buy."
Fragrantica - "Opens with delicious dark chocolate, cherry, amber, and honey. The patchouli and musk kick in a little later, and the amber darkens and becomes more rich, with a slightly nutty hint and a beautiful dustiness from the sandalwood."
Fragrantica - "Invite Only smells super creamy from the vanilla, it’s very sweet, there’s amber and woodsy notes in here, and the tobacco is quite prominent but it’s blended beautifully in a way that doesn’t punch you in the face with it. For that, I think this perfume is 100% unisex and it makes for a gorgeous cold weather fragrance."
Fragrantica - "This is in my top 5 of all time. It's sexy winter/fall cinnamon/sweet goodness. I have Vanilla 28 (it's fine, doesn't blow my socks off) and Deja Vu White Flower (a little headache-inducing and a lesser sister of Guerlain's Terracotta), but this is a love, love, love. It's unlike anything I've smelled before, and I appreciate that it smells feminine and sexy without being another fruitchouli."
