    Default Maya Njie - Perfumer?

    Following links at the end of a guardian article, there was a throw away comment to this "niche London house producing scents inspired by her childhood in Sweden and West Africa". I know female perfumers are rare and I'm guessing women of colour in the perfume world even rarer.

    I've asked for her house to be added to the directory and have sent off for samples of her current range (£17 for 5). Curious if anyone else has tried these?

    Other women of colour in the perfume world you all want to shout about?

    Side question. Why do you stress so much on "women of color"? Does race\sex\origin\whatever matter?

    Because structural inequality is a well documented phenomenon. The best way to break out of conventional thinking is to see things from a different perspective. So searching out those perspectives in life is important to me.

    Nordic Cedar sounds interesting to me
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
