I first discovered Maya’s beautiful perfume in Greenwich, at one of Wayne Hemmingway’s outside fetes, this was a few years ago. I was drawn, not only to the soothing aroma, but the bottles, photography and presentation of her products, and also to Maya herself. She has such a striking, individual and elegant look that I had to visit her stall. her first creation Nordic Cedar is my favourite perfume – as you can guess perfume is not my big thing, but hers is not at all like the commercial brands that you are used to – its light, subtle and the scent just stays with you. she has lots to choose from, and each one is reminiscent of a place or inspired by a memory that Maya has experienced. Maya is also one of the creative women that I have recently photographed.
