Welcome to Mea

Nau mai, Haere mai

MEA is a natural perfume oil made in and of Aotearoa New Zealand. The essence of Taramea, a sacred taonga (treasure) species, is sustainably hand-harvested and blended with the highest quality fragrance ingredients to bring you a collection of three distinct perfumes. Together they weave a thread in the story of an innovative and resourceful people – Ngāi Tahu.
