TANAÏS is a fragrance, beauty and jewelry brand founded by Tanaïs (née Tanwi Nandini Islam) author of the books In Sensorium: Notes for My People and Bright Lines. They imagine every product as a ritual meant to adorn the body. The Infinite Beauty Lipstick Collection summons evocative and colorful motifs, from ancient South Asian symbols, inspired by their motherland, Bangladesh, and iconic looks from specific eras: the psychedelic 60’s, bollywood disco, Y2K raves, outer space. Each lipstick is designed with the finest botanical ingredients, and each magnetic, embossed gold vessel is imagined as a talisman for the future. Their work has been featured in Harper's Bazaar, Vogue India, Allure, Elle and Vanity Fair.

About Tanais

Tanaïs is a name they've given themselves, is a portmanteau of the first two letters of their three names — a name that came to them after appearing on that list as a Muslim woman writer. They wanted to find a meridian between identities that honor where they come from and where they are headed. A multi-disciplinary artist, Tanais explored beauty in all mediums, Skin, make-up, fragrance, etc. While also have written a book that published recently, "In Sensorium - Notes for my people" that explores generational trauma through the sense of smell.
