OUR AROMATHERAPY SCENT STORY
Awaken your wanderlust with Malée fragrances as they capture the vivid and invigorating scents of Africa, igniting your wanderlust and taking you on a sensory journey across the continent. From lush mangroves, earthy forests, and dewy wetlands. Across moonlight, meadows blooming with African night flowers. To tribal villages steeped in ancient wisdom and traditions.
Our fragrances capture the vivid and invigorating scents of Africa, igniting your wanderlust and taking you on a sensory journey across the continent.
In 2010, Zeze Oriaikhi-Sao launched Malée –a luxury fragrance, bath, and body care range inspired by generations of African healing rituals and time-honoured beauty traditions.
She named it Malée after her great-grandmother. It is a term of endearment used for a gracious learned woman in Bini, the language spoken by a tribe in the Edo Kingdom of Nigeria.
This ancient wisdom advocated the powerful healing properties of 100% pure plant-based ingredients sourced from nature itself. These traditions live on in Malée, with their efficacy proven by modern science.
Zeze has since expanded her business across Africa, the UK, the rest of Europe, and ultimately the globe, setting a precedent in the African-made luxury goods market.
We use only 100% natural active ingredients in our Naturals Skincare products. Each jar, tub and bottle contain only what your skin needs to get the results you want. We ensure that all our products are free from mineral oils, animal-derived ingredients, many known allergens and harmful parabens and silicones.
HERITAGE INNOVATION FOR OUR NATURALS SKINCARE PRODUCTS
Malée embodies the ancient African premise of beauty with purpose: healing, wisdom, and nature. The circular symbol on Malée’s logo is a reference to Adinkrahene – the primary symbol of the Ghanaian Adinkra -a series of symbols used to tell stories and describe history.

This body scrub has been amazing. This has a rich honey like color with key ingredients such as seed butter, sugar, salt, seed oil and almond oil…
ing. It also has a lovely natural scent that is not overpowering. My skin feels so hydrated and nourished.
Love the products I received! Really fast delivery, well packed and I am enjoying these products, they have been perfect for my dry skin, I think the price range is perfect for these products.
Calming smell and non greasy. Great packaging. The smell is so calming, fresh, clean, and relaxing. Hand cream is very effective for dry skin, non greasy and last very long. Body scrub exfoliates my skin and removes my dead skin cells. I love the oil as it soothes my very dry skin and nails. I love applying it on my hair. Very light, non greasy and very effective.
Scrub for the win! I highly recommend the body scrub. It delivers on moisture and exfoliation without being abrasive nor overpowering on the scent. It is now a staple in my weekly pamper sessions’. I suggest also using this prior to waxing. It has totally solved my ingrown hair challenges.
Highly recommend Malee! From a multitude of body products that I used in the last years, I’m certain that Malee took the prize in my experience. I love the fresh, silky and moisturised feeling after each use of the body scrub, the hand cream is in my bag at all times(and the fact that you need a very small amount of cream to massage your hands, is amazing) and most definitely the body oil will remain my all time favourite.
Sumptuous skin and treasured beauty rituals. Malée is quite the adorable brand. I enjoy not only the luxurious products and tactile packaging, but it’s story inspired by African beauty. I have used the sumptuous body moisturiser, hand lotion and gifted it to my family as well. The Verdure body oil is gorgeous. Uplifting and refreshing…
I recently purchased some products from Malée and I have to say, the website, customer service and quality of products are amazing. I purchased the peppersage candle which is delightful and the Verdure Room Mist which is very fresh and uplifting. Definitely lifts the spirits during lockdown.
Best scrub ever. Great products! My favourite products are the conditioning body scrub and moisturising oil. I can’t rave enough about the scrub. I suffer from very dry skin and mild case of psoriasis on my arms and most oils don’t penetrate my skin but when I use the scrub it clears up the inflammation and soothes my skin…
hadn’t had in years! I would recommend this product to everyone!
I heard of Malee Natural Science products from their initial launch in South Africa. I was convinced that the Conditioning Body Cream was a good product for all types of skin. I like their Verdure Fresh Forest Green candle and their Anti-Aging Hand cream…
An exotic new breath of Africa. Verdure hand cream and all green skincare line is a must have for me. The scent is so exotic, fresh and out of this world. I have never visited Africa and I want to go there now for the full experience…
My skin is now energised and soft, thanks to Malee. I recently purchased the body scrub and absolutely love it. The scent takes me far away from the current climate and leaves my skin feeling soft and energised! Delivery was fast, I highly recommend any of the Malee products!
Lovely luxury products. I am a new Malee convert. The product is just so lovely and perfect for my skin. I suffer from Eczema so I am not always keen to use many products but Malee body lotion and hand cream is so soothing and moisturising.
Malee is excellent! Malee has such an excellent, high quality product line and each one brings luxury to my day. I am especially proud that it is an African brand that competes on a global stage. Useful Share.
Beautiful brand with beautiful products! I have used a large number of luxury brands and I absolutely loved using these products. The customer service is fabulous, super friendly and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this company and all of their gorgeous products!
