Mona Maine de Biran is the female founder and owner of KIERIN and the visionary behind the brand, its mission and ethos. A proud American businesswoman and single mother of two children, Mona aspires to inspire, not define or confine, people with KIERIN products. With a focus on artistry, olfactory communication with scent story telling, ethical ingredients, quality and value, Mona takes a heart-centered approach to perfumery.
“I am passionate about perfumes, people and planet. I am proud to have put my own personal money into KIERIN, a fully self-funded start up launched in 2018. As an independent, niche perfumery, I’ve been at liberty to craft an uncompromising collection that is all (and always) artful, ethical, clean and conscious. Each fragrance is thoughtfully produced with personal attention to detail. Illuminating the spirit through scent, conveying inspiration beyond just profit, remains KIERIN’s first business goal.”~ Mona Maine de Biran, Founder / CEO
