Who is KIMBERLY New York?
"KIMBERLY New York is an "unapologetically creative" niche fragrance house aimed to celebrate African art, culture and love. Established in 2016, KIMBERLY New York serves as an answer for the modern, socially-conscious consumer in search of black-owned, fine perfumery." - Kimberly Walker, Owner | Perfumer
Welcome, welcome, welcome! So, a little about me...
I was born in St. Ann, Jamaica and raised between New York City and St. Petersburg, FL, U.S.A. During my 10-year career as a niche fragrance sales manager, I sold an array of exclusive and intriguing fine fragrances to an extensive clientele. I noticed that although fragrance consumers were ethnically diverse, rarely did I encounter a fragrance brand that featured black models. Even more rare was a fragrance brand led by a black, female perfumer. Inspired by the lack of inclusivity in the world of luxury fragrance, I began studying fragrance composition and chemistry in 2015. After learning the science of fragrance, I decided to try my hand at creating my own signature scent. Artsy eau de parfum was born after dozens of trials and errors in May 2016, and continues to be my personal favorite to this day!
