MAYA NJIE (pronounced 'maia en-jai') studied surface design and photography at the university of the arts london. inspired by an old family photo album from the decades before her birth, MAYA NJIE set out to capture, by way of scent, these moments in time, set within their frames. she sought to bottle the spirit connected to the classic 1970's scandinavian idyll, combined with the soul of her esoteric gambian heritage.
MAYA NJIE perfumes was founded in 2016. a niche unisex fragrance brand with a clear focus on high quality artisanal blends with androgynous scents. all formulas are developed in-house, using a variety of essential oils, aroma compounds and resins. making use of both naturals and synthetics in her creations - it’s nature and science combined. with care and precision, the blends are mixed in small fresh batches, filtered and bottled individually by hand.
my favourite perfume from the range is vanilj, which I wear every day. it's spicy, earthy and sweet, just like me!
