Motivational speaker Barbe Stegemann and founder of perfume company The 7 Virtues, launches a new fragrance this month called Patchouli of Rwanda. The new fragrance will be available in stores on the 21st September 2014 to coincide and honour the International Day of Peace.
This latest addition takes her current collection to five fragrances with each supporting suppliers from that area. Other fragrances include Afghanistan Orange Blossom, Noble Rose of Afghanistan, Veviter of Haitiand Middle East Peace.
With Mission and Vision statements being, respectively, ‘Make Perfume Not War...’ and to ‘leave a better footprint on this planet than we found’ means that Barb is still very much setting herself apart from her contemporaries by putting her suppliers first and helping them to develop locally.
In meeting with farmers in Rwanda, Barb said seeing ‘homes built with their income from harvesting patchouli showed us the direct benefits of harnessing our buying power in the beauty industry for positive change,”
It is a model that appears to be working too with her customers as she continues to pick up customer awards along with ongoing recognition from the wider business community.
