Fragrances as constellations, candle holders as enchanting coffee table sculptures. oOumm is a home fragrance brand developed through a unique concept celebrating the union between exceptional fragrances and beautifully crafted design objects.
“oOumm collections are evocative objects enchanting through the steadiness of the matter, the emotional language of perfumes, and the ephemeral nature of candle lights. ”
A brand name that resonates as a sacred chanting, oOumm celebrates the emotional feature of design, evoking soulful memories at a candle light. Born from the vision of entrepreneur and contemporary art collector Maria Bosoni, this Paris-based brand is unparalleled in the industry.

oOumm is shaped as the perfect space of expression for talented designers working with high-quality materials. Assisting Maria Bosoni for the brand artistic direction, Jerome Aumont joined oOumm from his experience with Collection Particulière, the French design firm known for its exploration in sculpturing noble materials.The challenge of redesigning home fragrance was embraced by Jerusalem-born designer Dan Yeffet. Constantly exploring the invisible limits of materials, for oOumm he designed a collection inspired by the Greek history, as one of the most ancient traditions in crafting marble, brass, while also exploring glass with reference to the XIXth century lanterns.
Dan Yeffet peculiar approach to raw material, carried with a very personal way of enhancing craftsmanship, opened up new perspectives to the brand. Using an exquisite combination of materials such Murano hand-blown glass, marble and brass, his sophisticated designs include wick trimmers, candle snuffers and lighters. Orion, Lyra, Libra, Corvus. Greek names recalling constellations and sacred spaces. Dan Yeffet designed a series of lighting apparatus purposefully for scented capsules, unique to the oOumm brand.
For this first collection, the nose Barnabé Fillon was invited to develop four original scents for our exclusive refill system. An olfactory talent, Barnabé Fillon won the prestigious Talents à la Carte prize in 2013 awarded by Maison & Objet Design. For oOumm he developed a range of sophisticated, instinctive scents opening sensitive journeys. Fragrances evoking a fugue inside a French garden, or a summer swim into a river, these charming bouquets are a gorgeous complexity of perfumes glowing into timeless design objects.
