Kevin became enamoured with everything about ancient Egypt as a child and still remains so to this day. In 2011 he created House Of Kiya as an outlet of his more geeky interests in Egypt as well as to provide free resources on ancient Egyptian history and mythology.
In 2018/9 his interests leaped into a more physical one that included the sense of smell and sound which had been lacking previously. To this end HoK Perfumes came about to initially provide a way to share ancient recipe research into scents which would have been available to the ancient Egyptians – be it soap, incense and original perfumes.
From this specific objective, Kevin continues to explore a wider field of new scents - past and present - from his surroundings on the coast of Kent.
kevin is an alumni student of the perfumery art school and has become a major contributor to assisting us with masterclasses for private groups and sharing his knowledge with our new students.
