A fragrance story.
The award-winning fragrance that is so much more than a perfume
Beautycalypse, an intelligent and inspiring quest for cleaner living and an authentic lifestyle recently spoke to one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs and business woman in the beauty business, Barbara Stegemann, the founder and CEO of the 7 Virtues.
Barbara Stegemann sources essential oils from farmers in Afghanistan, Haiti, Middle East and Rwanda for her fragrances. The founder landed her first break in the beauty industry after appearing on the CBC’s Dragon’s Den reality show in 2011, where she presented her fragrance, The 7 Virtues. A perfume range developed to help boost the economy of war-torn nations, help bring peace and security. Vegan, free of phthalates and parabens, and an amazing story, what more could you want in a fragrance?
The 7 Virtues collection consists of four fragrances: Middle East Peace, Vetiver of Haiti, Noble Rose of Afghanistan, Afghanistan Orange Blossom.
