Nayassia is a French niche perfume brand that was founded in 2019. The founder of the brand is Fella Cherchali, who has cultivated her love for fragrances since childhood. At the moment, 9 fragrances have been created.
Summer 1983, after a long crossing, I arrive in France in the charming fishing village of Sète. I am 7 years old. I can see only the sea. It is everywhere. Its backwash brings a bit of my childhood and the images that bind me to it. That year the garden colours of the family home in Algiers are regularly erased from my mind yet I hold to them more than my own life. So I begin to tame a little imaginary feather that, whenever I wish, brings back the sensations of my past. I only need a scent to make it appear and my treasure is all around me. There have been many other departures, to Paris, to Zurich, to Montreal, to Dubai – each time to live a part of life. Armed with this feather, I no longer feared forgetting my memories.Fella Cherchali
Farrukhnaz is a sweet oriental composition with ingredients such as: plum, black currant, lemon, gardenia, patchouli, amber, tonka and musk. The opening of the fragrance is a sweet and elegant combination of patchouli and plum with an accent of tonka and incense. The fragrance is sweet, although it is not very feminine. It is a well-balanced composition. In the next stage, we get a mix of patchouli and gardenia. The whole thing is a bit dark and it is definitely an evening perfume. Farrukhanz is a very durable composition, so all fans of strong scents with character will love it.
Aja’Ib is a fragrance that includes: saffron, bergamot, red fruit, jasmine, praline, oud, tonka and amber. The opening of the fragrance is a combination of the sweetness of praline and red fruit with fresh bergamot. The fragrance is very juicy and at the same time incredibly oriental thanks to the notes of oud. It is the oud that plays the role of the base on which all the ingredients are arranged in a wonderful way. I love such sweet fruit compositions that immediately bring to mind holidays. If you are looking for a long-lasting, fruity and fresh summer composition, this fragrance will meet all your expectations.
Matsya is the last fragrance in this wonderful ‘golden’ trilogy from the Nayassia. It is an incredibly aromatic scent of sage, leather, cedar, sandalwood, oud, saffron and bergamot. The opening of the fragrance is a leather wood aura with a hint of saffron and fresh bergamot. The fragrance becomes more woody and resinous with each passing moment. At times, the composition seems to warm our skin, which makes it a perfect fragrance for fall and winter. I am a big fan of woody fragrances, so Matsya will accompany me on every cold day.
This time, the mysterious East was the inspiration for creating the perfume collection. The original golden and black bottles from the collection, decorated with the image of a golden feather, perfectly reflect the special energy of the fragrances they contain.
