Natural Fragrances, Fair Trade and Earth Friendly

Over forty years ago, in the late seventies, several young pioneers launched what was then known as Encens d’Auroville, a single line of incense packets with just twelve fragrances. Several years later Paul Pinthon, one of the co-founders, was joined by his partner Laura Reddy. They started building a company which offered a range of home fragrances and later on, body care items. They changed the name to Maroma, keeping Encense d’Auroville as their flagship incense line. Their first aim in running this brand remains, until today, to bring much-needed finances to Auroville.

Significance of "MAROMA"

The name MAROMA, consists of Ma-from Mother, Aroma-the fragrance, Om-the universal sound, and finally back again to Ma-mother. These words within a single name were meant to give a new impetus to this unit which aspires to make beautiful and fine quality products that have become emissaries of Auroville throughout the world.
