A box of votive candles carrying all three of the sumptuous scents from Kit Kemp. Gardenia Green Leaf: A signature scent of warmed white flowers is reminiscent of an English garden in summer bloom. Wheatgrass Bay: An elegant composition of herbal notes and citrus tones. This candle burns bitter and sweet. Lavender Juniper: Aromatic herbs layered with the zest of bergamot and delicate geranium. The scent of an English herb garden after the rain.
London is one of the most stylish cities in the world, an epicentre of creativity and innovation, and so it is, that infused with the simultaneous sophistication and joie de vivre of classic good taste meeting contemporary design, that one of the most stylish bath and body brands was born.
If you want to create an ultra stylish brand, go to the most stylish woman in London. RikRak is the brainchild of Kit Kemp, the Design Director of the worldwide collection of Firmdale Hotels, frequented by the likes of Taylor Swift, Daniel Craig and Sir Mick Jagger. She is known for her unfailing ability to march to the beat of her own drummer with an iconic interior style, and believing that fragrance is the fourth dimension that influences one’s experience of space, RikRak has been the natural progression of her craft. It is every inch as stylish as she is and infused with her favourite and most evocative botanic fragrances, most notably gardenia, which she is known to wear herself.
Kit sees her products as an extension of the adventure of travelling, and they feature in the exclusive portfolio of hotels from New York to London. In a collection of candles, creams, soaps and shower gels they capture the essence of an English garden in full summer bloom.
The Gardenia Greenleaf, in particular, is a zesty fusion of gardenia, rose and orange blossom, lifted by green leaves, fresh lilies and bergamot zest, and heartened by amber and vanilla. Meanwhile, the new Lavender Eucalyptus fragrance is a soothing blend of bergamot, rosemary and lemon mixed with eucalyptus and lavender.
The products are recognised for their style, sophistication and lasting scent, a testament to their high quality which is one of the cornerstones of all Kit’s work. It is the sensual embodiment of her design and something to carry a sense of freshness throughout the day, always leaving an impression on those you meet; a tantalising sense of wanting more.
