 LANCOLIA, THE GENESIS

Since the dawn of civilization, scents have connected with emotions.

Scents help us to focus, to relax, to heal. I was inspired to found Lancolia LLC in 2016 to bring scents back to center stage.

The mission is to Care, Connect, and Comfort, by creating effective products that are also elegantly scented. The formulas are not only just effective, they are also minimalist and sustainable, while delivering scents that transport.  

We also strive to be a brand that’s based on eco-conscious chemistry. I pledge that Lancolia will always work towards finding real long-term solutions to the challenges facing our planet, from recycling to upcycling to planting trees. 

Oops, I forgot to introduce myself... 

Hi! My name is Nabila and I’m the founder and chief chemist at Lancolia.

I have always been captivated by scents and as a native of France, fragrances are a lifestyle. In my youth, I would visit perfumeries to cover myself in perfume samples that I couldn’t afford and observe attentively the craft and elegance of luxury packaging. However, it was during a serendipitous visit to a Cambridge soap shop that I first felt truly transported to another time and place, inspiring a lifelong interest in creating my own scented personal care products for the soul.

A love of science led me to a career in chemistry. I am a published scientist, author and inventor who is passionate about the role chemistry plays in our lives.

My first job in industry was as a toxicology assistant at L'Oréal, where I learned a lot about product safety and enjoyed being in the lab. This inspired me to go back to school for a Master’s Degree in formulations, polymers and drug discovery. I worked on what is called green chemistry, which includes discovering better, more sustainable routes to synthetic molecules.

After I graduated with my Master’s, I decided to pursue a PhD in drug discovery, synthesis and pharmacology. My project focused on detecting and treating skin and pancreatic cancer, and I was so passionate about it that I literally only slept 4 or 5 hours a day. I graduated with 2 PhDs, chemistry and life science and continued for a year of post-doctoral research. I loved the work, but decided to return in industry to learn more about manufacturing, additive technology and applied formulations.  

Through these experiences, I was able to gain a unique view of the challenges facing the world today. I learned I could create products with amazing scents that really worked and were made with sustainability in mind. Lancolia was born.

I invite you on a journey to rediscover the power of luxurious fragrances while maintaining a healthy self-care regimen and hope that you enjoy your Lancolia experience as much as I am excited to share it with you.
