The Story Behind the Scent

“Romance and roses… a little cliched, yes, but it was an association imprinted from such a young age.

Racing Hearts is inspired by that heady feeling when you can’t keep your hands off each other, when the world revolves only around you and the one you love.

It’s impetuous and impulsive and stupid and beautiful.”

- Kimberly

I bought the candle for a gift to give to friends at the weekend. I’m certain they will be thrilled with it

Simply stunning!

Being my absolute favourite fragrance out of Kimberly's range (so far), I couldn't resist buying a candle after trying the wax melts. The smell travels far around a large room and burns amazingly. If you love turkish delight then you'll love this fragrance. Its rose based but without being too overpowering. Gorgeous!


I bought this as a treat for myself after reading about Kimberley's Swoonworthy scents journey. The packaging is beautiful, the scent is amazing and the candle looks great on my bedroom chest of drawers even when not lit. I highly recommend and will be buying others as gifts.


I bought this candle as a present for my mum and she loves it! I didn't even have to wrap it because they come so beautifully package with personalised messages.

A truly decadent, high end candle that has a rich, warm rose perfume. Beautifully packaged. Looks fabulous, smells fabulous. Burns evenly with an amazing scent throw. Even when not burning, it will gently scent the room. Highly recommend.
