Le Delicieux

 Created By

In creating Le Delicieux in 2016, Nejma broke the rules by choosing a pure white and gold universe as opposed to their black and gold brand heritage. Part of the Private Collection, Marie-Lise and perfumer Alice Lavenat worked for more than a year on the formula for Le Delicieux.

It is a sophisticated and fresh perfume, starting out at the top with crisp, juicy citrus notes of Italian lemon, yellow mandarin and bergamot oil alongside sparkling pink pepper. The opulent floral and powdery heart consists of sambac jasmine, Damascena rose, white orchid and Italian iris, which then gives way to a warm and sensuous dry-down of caramel, vanilla, amber, vetiver, tonka bean and patchouli, rounding out this delicious and addictive eau de parfum.

 Nejma Perfumes | Scent City


Nejma fragrances are based on a captivating story concerning the character Nejma, who represents fate or coincidence & whose name means ‘a good star’ in Arabic. As the story goes, She is captured to be sold as a slave but the man who buys her ends up falling in love with her; he is spellbound by her sweetness and the natural perfume of her body. Their union produced seven daughters, each as beautiful as the last, who were the inspiration behind the seven perfumes in the Heritage Collection

Created by Marie Lise Bischoff, each fragrance is made with diverse ingredients but always has oud as the base.
