Lovely smell and long lasting

The Rolls Royce of candles

Decided to treat myself to one of Kimberly’s amazing candles and I’m so angry. Angry that I didn’t order sooner! Diptyque and co have nothing on these candles - they are hands down the best I have ever burned (and I do identify as a bit of a candle addict!). The scent is rich without being overpowering, and diffuses beautifully to fill the entire room. It even makes the room smell nice when not lit, as well as being an attractive decorative accessory in its own right. It also gives the cleanest and most even burn of any candle I’ve ever used; if, like me, you hate tunnelling and wasted wax, these are the candles for you. Every detail of the packaging, branding, and burning experience has been carefully thought through and the execution is flawless. All other candles are spoiled for me now and I’ve already ordered other products to try :)

I have a LOT of nice candles from Jo Malone, Diptyque etc (it's a bit of a problem) and can honestly say this candle beats them all on several points. My fave being that the scent is really strong (not too strong), and has continued to be that way whereas others seem to fade out. It's definitely the one I reach for when the dog has attempted his own room deodorising... The wick is very satisfying to light and hasn't burnt to a stub before the wax runs out. The glass/design is also pretty so it looks good when not lit. There isn't anything I don't like about this candle actually, even the price is fair given the quality. Oh and it would make a lovely gift as the tin is gorgeous. Buy one, then buy one for your mum!


This candle ticks all the boxes! The attention to detail and personal touch in the packaging is amazing and the design and colours are dreamy😍 I've used the pretty tin as a storage container. The scent is scrumptious, and even my husband commented on the smell which he never normally does. The wax burns perfectly with no tunnelling. On top of all this, the candle is coloured with a gorgeous tint of peachy pink, which is quite unusual as far as luxury candles go. My new favourite candle!


I bought First Light and a set of wick trimmers for a friends birthday and I’ve never had such grateful praise for a gift I’ve given before. Not just the actual products I bought for her, but the packaging, the handwritten note, and the extra little touches throughout. She was over the now I know what all my friends are getting this year for their birthdays!
