The New Savant is a modern scent studio located in Brooklyn, NY.

We blend high-end, original fragrances with approachable materials, to create something that looks good and smells better.

Ingrid Nilsen, co-founder and Chief Creative, designs each candle herself, creating original olfactory experiences that tell a story. As a queer, mixed race woman, she draws inspiration from personal experience to create scents that feel emotionally familiar and completely new to the sense of smell.

Our name, THE NEW SAVANT, honors the untraditional, self-made path in life. We are LGBTQ+, women and AAPI owned.
