About The Founder Melanie Jane

Dubbed a "Scent Fairy" by her Fragrant Fans, Melanie Jane is a lifelong scent enthusiast.
Inspired by her father to start creating perfumes at the age of just eight, she had no idea then, what an impact that gift of a perfume making kit would have on her future. From developing perfume making activities for Toyota and creating a fragrance for Carlsberg, to teaching at the Burj Al Arab, Melanie Jane has mastered the art of combining scent creation with engaging education.
Now she brings her live masterclasses online so she can share her passion for perfume on a global scale.
1970 A SCENT FAIRY IS BORN
Melanie Jane grew up in the north of England surrounded by fields of flowers, and with a passion for perfume inspired by the gift of a fragrance kit at age eight. She spent many a joyful day blending away creating scents to the delight of her father.
1997 THE JOURNEY BEGAN
Melanie studied beauty and holistic therapy. The aromatherapy module would lead her to discover the emotional healing properties of essential oils, as she privately battled postnatal depression and grief, at the sudden loss of her beloved father Albert. This prompted a yearning to share her knowledge with the world, as she started a private practice in the UK, with the desire to help others.
1999-2019 THE TWO-DECADE MIDDLE EASTERN JOURNEY
In 1999 Melanie moved to Dubai, where she eventually went on to create a critically acclaimed line of exclusive aromatherapy products, natural skincare and feel-good fragrances, under the brand name NightingOils.
2016 A SCENT FILLED AUGUST CHANGED EVERYTHING
A life changing summer spent at the world-renowned Grasse Institute of Perfumery in France, enriched and refined Melanie’s work, and allowed her to form a professional partnership with a luxury perfume house in Paris. A chance encounter with "Scent Maverick" Jo Malone inspired her to rebrand and simply use her name, 'Melanie Jane.'
2017 A GLOBAL REACH
IN 7* HOTELS
It was in France that Melanie discovered her love of teaching and inspiring others as she went on to host regular masterclasses in luxurious locations throughout the city such as the Burj Al Arab. They proved so popular that students would fly in from New York and Thailand to attend for just one day.
2019 THE YEAR OF THE
SUPER BRANDS

With a reputation for high end luxury and prestigious venues combined with out-of-the-box thinking, Melanie was commissioned by Carlsberg to create a bespoke scent for the UAE launch of Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc.
She has since worked with Toyota and was approached by Mercedes and Martini for similar fragrance collaborations.
2020 THE FRENCH CONNECTION
After many visits to France Melanie fell in love and decided to make it her permanent home. Now, in addition to designing perfumes for Indie brands, influencers and global brands, she hosts courses online and at her Scent Studio, assuring her position as a high-end brand and an authority on all things fragrance.
2022+ THE FUTURE
In between supporting online students, designing perfumes for clients, and teaching at her French studio, Melanie is writing a nonfiction book about scent and developing a fragrance franchise. More overseas perfume masterclasses are planned for 2022.
