Enchanted with Pintail candles whilst holidaying in the Lake District in England, Kym soon discovered Stoneglow candles (UK) and Shearer candles from Glasgow in Scotland. She immediately knew she had to share these fragrant candles with fellow South Africans… and The Whimsical Whippet was born.

The name of Kym’s company is inspired by her love for dogs and her British ancestry. She felt drawn to whippets with their unique nature, friendly personality and stylish look that epitomised her aspirations for her shop – with a dash of whimsicality thrown in!

The Whimsical Whippet is the proud distributors of Pintail, Shearer and Stoneglow candles, diffusers and diffuser refills in South Africa.
