BTSO (Born to Stand Out)
Huda Beauty Kayali Yum Pistachio Gelato 33 was launched in 2023. Created by Olivier Cresp and Sebastien Cresp, it is a woody gourmand. Despite the list of notes, this is not a heavy gourmand, it is more woods and will wear well all through summer.
Notes of pistachio, rum, bergamot, ice cream, hazelnut, cardamom, lily of the valley, geranium, peony, jasmine, pear, raspberry, white peach, whipped cream, sandalwood, marshmallow, cedar, cotton candy, tonka bean, cacao and loukhoum.
From the brand - "This scent opens with mouth-watering facets of hazelnut and pistachio blended with rum for a tantalizing first impression. In the heart, beautiful white peony creates a rosy, honey-like effect while the lily of the valley helps maintain the luxurious balance of sweetness, freshness, and sophistication. As the dry down continues, enjoy a delicious overdose of whipped cream, fluffy marshmallows, and creamy sandalwood for an insanely delectable gourmand fragrance!"
Huda Beauty Kayali Yum Pistachio Gelato 33 is the edp, eau de parfum.
Fragrantica - "First of all the most beautiful part of this fragrance is fact that it smells cold, just like ice cream in the fridge literally. But not minty cold or eucalyptus type of way. Just feels like this air in ice cream shop when u open the fridge. That reminds me of A Whiff of Waffle Cone by Imaginary Authors because it also have that „ice cream shop” feeling if you know what I mean…. But that one is heavy on cinnamon, here we have pistachio. It's like fresh but sweet at the same time if that makes any sense?"
Fragrantica - "Delicious. This is a perfect gourmet light, great for summer. When I think of gourmands they are heavy and autumn winter so this is a refreshing surprise. It isn't as dense as I thought it would be but that is why I love it. Fluffy clouds of whipped cream, pistachio, marshmallow, lots of vanilla and the right amount of sweet."
Fragrantica - "Love the drydown, when I can pick up the rum and the creamy notes. Most of the day I get a wiff of the hazelnut note and vanilla with marshmallows, this really smells like an ice cream shop. And I think that's the reason it will be so polarizing, as not everyone wants to smell like food. Luckily for me, after a few hours this does smell more than jist food on me, like a good gourmand perfume, not like pure food. I think the rum does the job here, rally brings out the best of it, otherwise it would've been a flat vanillic milky scent."
Fragrantica - "I actually love this, and I am not one to love a sweet fragrance, I get a lot of the bergamot initially, fresh and fruity with nutty undertones, the pistachio doesn't last all day but it is in the top notes after all. I love the scent, it lasts so long on me, about 8-10 hour, projection is medium."
