BRAND STORY

With the call of nature from the Himalayas and the heritage of French perfumery craftsmanship, hima jomo is committed to create a unique trans-regional olfactory dialogue between primitive and modernity.

hima jomo was founded in 2020 in Paris by a group of friends who share the same appreciation of Himalayan nature and culture.

Its name is the combination of two symbols dear to the brand: “hima” for “Himalaya”, and “jomo” which means “Holy Mother” in Tibetan and is the acronym for “Joy Of Missing Out”.

hima jomo’s perfume contain some of the most rare ingredients solely found in the mountain range. It promises a journey to the wilderness and serenity of the Himalayas, allowing everyone to return to the sources of life and the original well-being, by calling upon the olfactory richness of this heavenly land.

HIMALAYA

One look at the mighty landscape and towering snow-peaks, and we are mesmerized forever. Stunning mountains, dense temperate forests, dazzling snow that reflects the sunlight, deep alluring chasms,  winding rivers, rich varied bio-diversity and innumerable legends; all these describe the incredible Himalayas.  ‘Hima’ meaning snow and ‘Alaya’ meaning  ‘abode’ in Sanskrit, the mountains are a major part of the lives of Tibetans, Indians, Nepalis and many others who live in proximity to these grand mountains.

Be it the Shivaliks (the foothills of the mountains) or the highest peaks (Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga and others), the Himalayas have been an inspiration to poets, a fascination to tourists and a source of life to more than half the population on earth.

NATURALITY

hima jomo’s perfumes are inspired by the diverse natural ecosystem of Himalaya, slowly and faithfully crafted by hands in Grasse, France.

Our fragrances are made from 95% – 100% natural origin ingredients, especially using some of the most exquisite Himalayan botanical plants, the house sources its natural and organic ingredients from Maison Robertet, French fragrance manufacturer that specializes in sustainable natural raw materials founded in 1850, to ensure the best quality ingredients used in each bottle of perfume, and full traceability of raw materials for true natural resource management.

The entire product line is cruelty free and in recyclable packaging.

 

 

NOSE BEHIND HIMA JOMO

Delphine Thierry

It was 2019 when hima jomo first met Delphine Thierry – the nose behind Collection – “Season”. And the two found immediately a common appreciation of Himalaya nature and culture.

Delphine is particularly passionate about the creation of fragrances using precious natural raw ingredients. In her workshop nestled in the heart of nature, she composed the fragrances of hima jomo’s first perfume collection from noble and original Himalayan raw materials, whose essential oils, resins, concretes and absolutes are chosen for their very high level of quality and their richness.

“I let my imagination wander over the splendours of nature in the Himalayas, one of the last wild territories in the world where nature offers its most diverse and beautiful features. I also wanted to convey the benevolent and spiritual dimension of this cradle of peoples with age-old traditions. The red thread of these four olfactory creations, symbolising the magnificence of its mountains, is the essence or resin of pine”, said by Delphine.

 

 

PACKAGING DESIGN INSPIRATION

The orientation of the texts on the bottle, vertical, like the original logo of the house, is inspired by the Tibetan sacred texts – the mantras.

The cap is inspired by Tibetan clay – a material used in the daily life of highland nomads for thousands of years, and topped by the brand’s monogram – the ambigram of the brand’s initials “h” and “j”, modelled as a peak and a root coming from the sky and the earth to draw the forces of nature.

We are committed to a sustainable approach to the preservation of nature, pledging 1 Euro for every bottle sold of « the collection – Seasons »
