________

$2 of each perfume purchase supports women surviving abuse and trafficking

We didn’t set out to create just another perfume company. We dreamed of creating a perfume company with purpose - one that supports issues that many people care about.

We wanted to create unique scents that did more than just make you smell amazing. Our unique formulas are designed to remind you of how amazing you are and how beautiful the world can be.

We also want to evoke a feeling of hope in the women we're supporting. $2 from each purchase helps us create care packages providing basic necessities as well as items of comfort and encouragement. If something as small as a care package can bring light into these women's lives, we believe it's worth all the effort, and we think you will too!

Love,

Mylene & Kayte

________

Suppliers Who Support Women

All items in the care package come from suppliers that support women through education, safe housing, counselling, employment, and more.

________

Ripple Effect Of Support

Our platform creates a ripple effect of support throughout the world. We do this in 2 ways:

  • Our partnering non-profits help us reach women who are rebuilding their lives 
  • Our care packages only contain items from suppliers who support women

Risks and challenges

We always strive to deliver on our promises and we will do our best to ensure we ship your rewards in the timeline suggested in this campaign. However, there may be some factors out of our control that may slightly delay the shipping of these rewards. We want to assure you that it will be our priority to prevent this from even happening or reduce the impact it may have on delivering your rewards on time.

Adjustments to the perfume formulas and product designs / web experience may still happen in the following months, but the core product and experience will remain the same.

Thank you for believing in us and supporting us on our journey!
