Our Story


Zacharoula Lamprianidou

The idea of Zakiya was born during 2020 while I was working at one of the world’s leading fragrance houses, designing fragrances for various brands. That year, due to the pandemic, everyone was forced to stay at home and slow down and because of that - like many other people - I started investing more time and effort into transforming my personal space into an environment that reflects my taste and personality providing me with a sense of authenticity and comfort. I aimed for a minimalistic aesthetic with small luxury touches, that conveys purity, and most importantly creates an ambiance that embodies my personality.

This idea became reality in December 2023 by a desire to create a brand that blends beauty, sustainability, inclusivity, craftsmanship and luxury.

Inspired by Greek mythology, every candle in our collection is infused with the essence of ancient rituals or the charm of mythical characters. This reminds us that individuality is a source of beauty and ensures that everyone can find their perfect match. 

In today's fast-paced world, everything seems to be moving at an accelerated pace, making the need for a safe place where people can slow down, unwind, and create an ideal atmosphere even more pronounced. 

That's where Zakiya steps in. We offer premium-quality, hand-poured, sustainable candles with a diverse selection of scents inspired by personalities and stories that resonate with everyone, allowing you to find your perfect match. Whether seeking solace in familiar scents or exploring new olfactory horizons our candles empower you to express your unique style and embrace moments of serenity in your own way.

Zakiya isn't just a candle brand; it's a medium for connection and transformation in your home. When you burn our candles, you're not just lighting up a flame; you're taking part in a timeless ritual and immersing yourself in an experience that transcends boundaries, bringing us all together.
