One-Of-A-Kind: Malée's Zeze Oriaikhi-Sao
Malée is a beauty brand unlike any that we have ever encountered (with an incredible beginning to boot). Blending "nature" and "science", this visionary company is captivating the world with its ethical take on fragrances, bath & body buys and more.
We spoke with their founder, the lovely and luminous Zeze Oriaikhi-Sao.
Your brand story is just beautiful. When did the idea first pop into your head?
I have always had the idea burning at the back of my mind. I think my subconscious knew what I wanted to express with Malée. It just took a while for the confidence to kick in and I shared this openly.
The first time I shared it out loud was with a friend and we were sitting in my bedroom sharing our goals for the new year.

How do you pamper yourself? -
Where do you see your company in ten years?
In at least 15 countries worldwide.
We have to ask—what would you say your signature scent is?
Oh, I am partial, Verdure for me is a year-round favourite. It is invigorating and can definitely brighten even the dullest of winter days.
