Nicola Mae was founded by Brooklyn, New York native, Sydnee Mae. Inspired by her close relationship with her mother Simone Nicola, she combined the two middle names, birthing the brand name.
As a young black woman in America, Sydnee understands the many challenges of prejudice and social injustices African Americans and minorities face. In 2020, Nicola Mae was created to empower and uplift through the power of scent.
Driven by cultural inspirations, the perfume company incorporates African fragrance names, empowerment quotes, and rich colors.
The hope for Nicola Mae is to ignite resilience, as we continue to thrive and break barriers.
