Kim vividly remembers being in a shop with her mother as a child where they mixed each scent as it was requested, glass bottles tipped one after the other as oils combined suddenly to become a scent memory which lasted her whole life. She adored her mother for bringing her there. As a young mother herself Kim's earliest scent memories stirred as she conjured her own candles in the kitchen, with a kit from the local craft store. She found out she had "a natural nose." That first batch of candles at Kim's kitchen table were poured nearly twenty years ago. Now she has poured a couple hundred thousand. Kim attests to what happens when a woman journeys fully from memories of mingling conversations & scents, to a business built by keeping her heart solidly rooted. Every product she offers supports & sustains farmers, artists, friends & community in Colorado. Her storefront on Main Street in Longmont where people now find themselves wandering in, attracted by an unknown longing for scent memories of their own.
