About us

Kindle your inner dreamer, pioneer, or rebel with Nomad Noé’s collection of perfumed candles. Inspired by little-known historical movers and shakers, each candle tells a story of courage and daring through exquisite blends of fragrance.

A blend of vegetable waxes and French-made perfume is hand-poured into chic porcelain vessels, for an aromatic scent experience that inspires you to forge your own path—wherever it may lead.

NoMad is a nod to the brand’s New York City birthplace, while Noé (the French translation of the Babylonian “nukhu”) means to repose and rest, or as we interpret it, kick back, relax, and enjoy the sweet-smelling ride.
