About UsLet us introduce ourselves
How it all started
Hello and welcome! We’re Kimaria – cousins Kim and Maria, the founders of this eco luxury boutique fragrance company. 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 own experience as holistic therapists, we wanted to fuse this knowledge to create luxurious home fragrance.
After 2 years of testing, development and blending in our fragrance 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 of 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 very candle, melt, diffuser and oil in our studio. We’ve been a 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. We handpour all our candles, diffusers, melts and oils in the traditional way, but as an eco luxury boutique brand, our range gives you modern uniquely layered fragrances due to our master blending. 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.
We double pour by hand to make sure every candle is perfect and then we wait patiently as they 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.
Each luxury vegan diffuser is also hand poured into a beautiful re-usable contemporary glass bottle, using only Premium grade fragrance and pure essential oils. Our diffusers are phthalate, chemical and alcohol free, in a handcrafted box with natural rattan reeds. Kimaria diffusers give a background fragrance for approximately 18 months and we recommend renewing the reeds every 4-6 weeks.
Expect to enjoy approximately 72 hours of fragrance from the large candles and 40 hours from the lidded jars.
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
The cornerstone of our work is to use only natural vegan ingredients from a sustainable source and locally sourced packaging. We design, blend and hand pour every fragrance for a truly artisan bespoke service.
