We are pleased to bring our first ever fragrance line in store & online, featuring the local, modern artisan work of Maya Njie.
Consisting of five fresh, androgynous scents inspired by Maya’s Swedish upbringing and West African heritage, rooted in an old family photo album from the decades before her birth. Maya set out to capture, by way of scent, these moments in time, these tropes of familial life, set within their frames.
Maya’s formulas are developed in her London studio, 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. Ingredients such as musk and ambergris are synthetic substitutes and does not derive from its animal origin counterpart. With care and precision, the blends are mixed in small fresh batches, filtered and bottled individually by hand. All scents are all classed as Eau de parfums with a generous oil content of 30% on average.
Choose from NORDIC CEDAR, VANILJ, TOBAK, LES FLEURS & TROPICA
All perfumes are blended, filtered, filled, labelled and bottled by hand with plenty of love and care in Maya’s London studio - often to the sounds of Bai Konte to keep the momentum just right. All perfumes are vegan and cruelty free.
The introduction of fragrance is the next step for us in building our unique offering of progressive, independent wellness products. Welcome Maya to the Folk fold.
