Founders Otis Daniels Knight and Timothy Daniels Knight have built their Balmori Balmori brand of fragrances with a passion for creativity and craftsmanship. For more than ten years, Otis worked as an executive in the beauty, fragrance, and home décor space. Tim traveled around the world as a creative consultant, inspiring others through art and culture. Their continued travels to England, France, and Italy connected them with artisan perfumery partners and laid the foundation for the luxurious olfactory experience offered today. Through Partner to Empower, Balmori Balmori has expanded into their flagship boutique, now open at Perimeter Mall, offering tailored guidance and inspiration from their in-house fragrance and design experts.
