MAYA No. 2 Perfume Oil Review

Press Sample (Affiliated Links)

MAYA No. 2 Perfume Oil is a stunning floral fragrance that is aptly described as, "fresh, feminine, clean, airy, elevated." The aroma, which is articulated through the luscious middle notes of Moroccan Rose and Geranium, is a warm and musky floral that embodies the feeling of particularly fragrance freshly cut roses. The base notes of musk, amber and woods deepen the aroma without making it heavy. It sits close to the skin, doesn't announce itself before you enter the room, and as it fades the Moroccan Rose remains. It is a truly lovely perfume oil that delights the senses without overwhelming them. See my review of MAYA No 1 Perfume Oil (HERE) and my review of MAYA BASE Perfume Oil (HERE). These cruelty-free fragrances are spectacular, and worthy of your attention if you are seeking clean perfumes.

About MAYA,

You’ve sprayed, you’ve spritzed, you’ve dabbed and you’ve sniffed, and finally found the fragrance of your dreams. And then you start to smell it on others. Clearly, this is not your trademark scent.

Alana Shlenker, founder and creator of MAYA Fragrances, knew this feeling all too well. It was her motivation to launch MAYA, a curated collection of scents that smell different on everyone. Consisting of a revolutionary base and a beach-in-a-bottle scent that can be layered with any other fragrance or worn alone, MAYA fragrances are enigmatically engineered to never, ever smell the same on anyone.

Built on the belief that every person deserves their own signature scent, one that is truly personalized, MAYA formulas completely change as they interact with your own unique body chemistry. Unlike most fragrances on the market, MAYA doesn't wear you - you wear MAYA.

As the go-to fragrance junkie amongst her friends, Alana has always had a true passion for scent. After experimenting with her own concoctions of essential oils and store-bought fragrances for years, she tapped into her product development experience to develop the most versatile fragrance on the planet.

According to MAYA,

Unveil the allure of MAYA NO.2 – where fresh-cut roses blend seamlessly with warm, musky undertones, creating an irresistibly sexy fragrance perfect for nights filled with romance. Forget the past; this is the rose of the new era– fresh, bold and beautifully seductive.


  • Top Note: Ambrette – A musky note with a hint of sweetness to captivate from the first dab.
  • Middle Notes: Geranium and Moroccan Rose – The heart of the perfume, where floral meets sophistication, creating a vibrant yet delicate scent experience.
  • Base Notes: Precious Woods, Amber, Musk – A warm, deep base that lingers, adding a touch of mystery and allure to the airy florals.

Directions: Glide the roll-on applicator over pulse points (like your wrist and neck) to allow the fragrance to gently develop with the natural warmth of your skin.

Founder tip: Roll onto palms, rub them together and gently scrunch into your hair for an effortless, lingering aromatic effect.

Overall Assessment: Such a lovely and captivating aroma, and it is one that I will wear all summer long. A+
