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. TNS candles are meant to be burned and enjoyed. Our co-founder, Ingrid Nilsen, designs each fragrance.
We use domestic suppliers, vessels made from post-consumer waste, and minimal packaging materials. Our name honors the untraditional, self-made path in life. We are LGBTQIA+, women, and AAPI-owned.

"My sample set just arrived yesterday and I'm already back to purchase this candle in the full size because I couldn't stop thinking about it after I blew out the tea light last night! I don't have the most sensitive nose, the science of scent isn't exactly my wheelhouse, but this candle is divine. The scent has nuance and layers I can't describe. Will purchase again & again!"
