ABOUT AMAKIN

AMAKIN luxury home fragrances was founded in 2020 to connect people through places, emotions, and memories. Collections of premium quality candles, home fragrances and fine accessories are based on cities throughout the world.

AMAKIN is an Arabic word meaning “places.” AMAKIN is inspired by the scents of cities based on key fragrances found within a city’s culture or history that represent their unique special character. Our master perfumers in Grasse, France, carefully extract the finest raw materials and fragrant oils from each landscape.  We use premium mineral wax and ensure our candles are handcrafted with the highest level of quality.

We believe in providing people with an alternative to mass-produced products that can be found anywhere. Both luxurious and environmentally friendly, blending rich, natural fragrances with eco-friendly waxes and wicks, our mission is to offer something different: high-quality, artisanal product lines that give off an authentic mood and create unforgettable moments. 

 

Behind AMAKIN is a soul, Amal the founder of AMAKIN 

 

My fascination with fragrance has been a lifelong love affair. When I was little, it wasn't just the smells that enchanted me—it was everything about them: their language and how they told stories with each aroma, what people wore to express themselves, and the memories they invoke. From mixing and playing with my mother's perfume when I was little -which drove her crazy- to creating and imagining my own unique scents and learning more about different forms of expressions and seeing how people are drawn to the scent, it's even more special. The number of compliments is surprising but also makes me want to create fragrances in different ways!


Growing up, traveling around, meeting new people, I have realized that scents, perfumes, and fragrances can invoke conversations, memories, and experiences. Scents can be associated with a particular time and place, where we were, and who we interacted with. It can remind us of experiences over which we still hold deep feelings for years after! Scents are not just perceived: they're markers of our pasts and our daydreams. I started AMAKIN to inspire people about the places we come from through home fragrances that not only smell but connect us and transform our memories into something beautiful.
