About UsOur Story
How it all started
Hello and welcome! We’re Kimaria – cousins Kim and Maria, the founders of this eco luxury fragrance boutique. Our Studio is tucked away in the beautiful Georgian city of Armagh, surrounded by orchards, rolling hills and cobbled streets. With a family background steeped in natural remedies and plants, coupled with our professional holistic therapy background, we wanted to fuse this knowledge to create luxurious home fragrance.
After 2 years of testing, development and blending in our Studio, we launched Kimaria in 2015. A luxury handpoured vegan range, we use only pure soy wax, precious essential oils, spices, rare blooms and local flora. All our ingredients are sourced from ethical and sustainable suppliers from around the world.
We create beautiful layered fragrances, eco-friendly and with no paraffin, additives, colours or chemicals. We blend, hand pour, cure and hand package every candle, melt, diffuser and oil in our studio. Plastic free company from the start, all our vessels are recyclable and our packaging is biodegradable.
As master blenders, our collections tell the story of a place, time or experience, making memories along the way. Our expertise also allows us to create for other businesses, events and areas, with our Bespoke Fragrance Service and we also have a fabulous Charity Programme. Get in touch – we love to chat! Kimaria – exquisite fragrances for every space and place in your life.
About Our Products
We design and create every product in our Studio, handpouring all our candles, diffusers, melts and oils in the traditional way. As an eco luxury boutique brand and master blenders, our range gives you modern, uniquely layered fragrance. Our products are vegan – we use only 100% sustainable eco-friendly, pure soy wax, giving a clean non-toxic burn with no additives, paraffin, parabens, colours or chemicals. Each candle has a generous 12% fragrance load ensuring a strong continuous scent throw. The wicks are 100% eco friendly pure spun cotton and are self trimming.
We double pour by hand for candle perfection and they patiently rest in the Curing Room for up to 3 weeks, before being handpackaged. The candles are housed in beautiful re-usable glass vessels and handcrafted biodegradable boxes. We include a candle care card in every box. Expect to enjoy approximately 72 hours of scent from the large candles and 40 hours from the lidded jars.
Each luxury vegan diffuser is hand poured into a beautiful re-usable contemporary glass bottle, using only Premium grade fragrance and pure essential oils. They are phthalate and alcohol free, in a handcrafted box with natural rattan reeds and a handcrafted diffuser flower. Kimaria diffusers give a background fragrance for approximately 18 months and we recommend renewing the reeds every 4-6 weeks and flowers after 6 months.
Kimaria pure essential oils and natural oil blends are a new wellbeing addition to our fragrance portfolio, drawing on our therapy background, and are all blended and handpoured in our Studio for home diffusing.
All products are vegan friendly and never tested on animals. As an eco-friendly company, we have always been plastic free and all our materials are recyclable or biodegradable.
Locally Sourced Ingredients
