CÉLESTE is a niche lifestyle brand synonymous with heavenly, euphoric, luxurious simplicity; stimulating the human spirit one spritz at a time. Drenched in glamour and sublime mystery, CÉLESTE cultivates an ethereal aesthetic where timeless elegance and luxury transcends with ease.
We celebrate spirituality, femininity and sensuality through mesmerizing & intoxicating parfums, home scents & signature essentials for everyday wear.
We aim to create products that are stunningly beautiful, celestial scented and masterfully crafted with the highest quality in clean beauty standards. We want you to dress your spirit with unforgettable and illustrious notes of excellence, perfect for the mind, body & soul. We rely on the finest natural ingredients as well as the safest synthetic molecules, and we blend these materials in organic, non-gmo sugarcane alcohol. We’ve combined traditional perfumery with a natural formula base excluding all major toxins, to create heavenly scented natural-based fragrances. Commissioned by master perfumers in the lustrous southern valleys of Grasse, the perfume capital of France, our artisanal fine fragrances & home scents are micro batched, hand-blended, individually poured and artfully composed.
We’ve created a curated selection of “Highly Spirited” essentials from silk robes to 100% organic cotton blend t-shirts that are multifunctional. Our collection is chic, bold and effortless loungewear that can transform to ready-to-wear. Through our designs, we are able to tell powerful messages that uplift, inspire and elevate the Black women who inspire us. Our goal is to remind you of how essential it is in having a higher connection to oneself while not taking ourselves too seriously. We are reimagining spirituality and the way we wear it.

We thrive on using the best of the best ingredients—no matter how rare or hard to find. As such, each bottle of perfume is hand mixed and made with love, leaving an angelic, alluring, magical and memorable trail in the air for you and others to enjoy. Our principle philosophy is simply to create heavenly natural-based fragrances and everyday essentials that uplift, celebrate and empower women of color.
We celebrate and elevate the poised and magical Black Woman who draws strength from her own uniqueness.

about our founder
Since 2018, after seeing success from launching Josephine Cosmetics, a glamorously healthy makeup brand; founder Sholayide was inspired yet again to create a new impulsion to high-end fine fragrances, specifically for women of color. CÉLESTE is more than a brand. It is a philosophy and a lifestyle. Imagining rich and sensual collections of scents and essentials to glorify Black women, to make them embrace their highest potential and celebrate their magic, without neglecting an essential notion of comfort. Sholayide traveled to Grasse, France to offer women of color something heavenly: eco-luxury fine fragrances & home scents, marrying the best artisanal, small-batch formulas with the finest French quality and industry standards. This is the commitment Sholayide sought after when creating this divine and subtly audacious brand.
Sholayide, a Nigerian Brooklynite turned French Baroness, is a serial beauty & fashion aficionado, who’s love for marrying New York City’s Downtown Cool with Vintage French Elegance has taken her to create beautiful endeavours under her eponymous holding company, The S.H.A.I. Group. She has an imagination and she is ready and eager to share it with the world. She enjoys the simple pleasures of life as well as those lavish moments. Sharing with everyone she encounters her purest heart, true passion and the biggest smile. Currently living between Paris, New York, Marrakech and the French Atlantic Coast, she is the epitome of a true renaissance woman, one for whom style, beauty, charm, spirituality and playfulness are the keys to a fulfilling life. Everything she does is always done with her strong spiritual intuition, elegance, glamour, and heart.
CÉLESTE is a way of being, it is a way of life. A way to be open, to your higher self, to the world, to new feelings of self-empowerment. Relishing in your true anjelic self.
