Inspired by Minnie Ripperton’s song ‘Les Fleur’ which graced our radio airwaves in 1970, the Les Fleurs Eau De Parfum by MAYA NJIE is an unbound celebration of life, love and creation. Bergamot, the crisp citrus top note, provides a green and vigorous opening. Beneath lies fruitful, bright heart notes of sweet Fig, Neroli and Magnolia. It is rounded off with subtle base notes of Floral Musks and Unwilted Wood.

About Maya Njie
Founded in 2016, Maya Njie is a niche perfume brand with a clear focus on high quality artisanal blends. The scents are deeply rooted in Maya’s Swedish and West African culture. Inspired by 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. What did it smell like?
All formulas are developed in-house using a variety of essential oils, aroma compounds and resins. She makes use of both naturals and synthetics in her creations – it’s nature and science combined.
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 Minnie to keep the momentum just right. Vegan and cruelty-free.
A final tip
Fragrances evolve and become a little more rounded and seamless with time. The end of a bottle and the beginning of another will be at different stages of maturation. It’s a process to embrace. Be sure to store your perfume away from sunshine and heat. Cool and dark is the best way to maximise its longevity.
