Meet Maya Njie, brand founder and perfumer of Maya Njie perfumes. Founded in 2016, Maya Njie perfumes is a contemporary fragrance brand with a strong focus on quality materials, creating perfumes which are carefully-crafted and hand-poured with love and care at her London studio. In line with all of our perfumes brands, Maya Njie perfumes are vegan, cruelty-free and each fragrance comes in modern, simplistic recycled packaging.
Each of the six Maya Njie fragrances have their own unique quality and are inspired by Maya Njie’s Swedish and West African culture; Tropica, with notes of Citrus, Pineapple, Coconut and Sandalwood takes on you a journey to warmer climates with lush vegetation, while Vanilj combines the traditional Swedish combination of Vanilla and Cardamom. Our favourites? Impossible to say, however the “addictive” Tobak is one of our bestselling fragrances featuring sweet yet smoky notes of Tobacco leaf, Vetiver, Cinnamon, Tonka, Musk, Leather and Sandalwood. And why do we love Les Fleurs? The floral fragrance opens with the fresh citrus of bergamot developing into fruity heart notes of pulpy fig, sweet neroli and Magnolia drying down to notes of woods and musk; each and every bottle of Les Fleurs is hand-poured whilst beautiful homonymous song by Minnie Riperton plays in the backgroun. Let’s also not forget the aromatic Voyeur Verde was nominated for the Sunday Times Style 2022 Beauty Awards.
Before exploring the olfactive world, Maya Njie’s background was in surface design and photography; each fragrance is match with a photographic postcard by the perfumer, evoking the background and story to each scent.
Maya Njie perfumes are not simply a range of fragrances, but an artistic expression of memories and journeys.
Maya Njie perfumes retail at £95 for 50ml, complimentary postcards included.
