If you follow me on instagram you will know that I recently won a really awesome giveaway from The 7 Virtues – a set of seven perfume rollerballs, and a #makeperfumenotwar t-shirt.
That same week, I had the opportunity to meet the owner of The 7 Virtues (Barb Stegemann) at the Montreal Sephora store for a blending atelier – a very cool experience!
While I was there, I purchased a full size bottle of the Rose Amber scent because I’d fallen in love with it. Today I’m reviewing the Rose Amber scent (I’ll review the other scents soon). [info in italics taken from the Sephora website]
The 7 Virtues Peace Perfumes are made with natural, organic and fair trade essential oils supporting families in nations rebuilding after war or strife. Founder and author, Barb Stegemann designed her vegan, cruelty free scents for eco-chic women and men who want a luxury fragrance without the harmful chemicals. Good for the world. Good for your skin.
Fragrance Family: Floral Scent Type: Warm Florals Key Notes: Bergamot, Rose, Amber
About: The rare and precious rose essential oil is famous for stimulating feelings of love, as well as for its aromatherapy benefits. Adventurous Rose Amber peace perfume is for contemporary women and men who want to leave a better footprint on this earth than they found. This is the warm rose of love. The contemporary scent features heart notes of warm cinnamon and crisp lavender, anchored by base notes of sensual sandalwood and delicious vanilla. Wear alone or blend with the fresh, bright scent of Orange Blossom for your own trademark impression.
What else you need to know:
Rose Amber perfume builds communities. Farmers earn twice the income through rose than they would through growing an illegal poppy crop. The purchase of this oil frees 1000 seasonal farmers and their families from illegal opium traders. There are 178 hand-picked rose petals in every bottle of Rose Amber.
This vegan, hypoallergenic, and cruelty-free perfume features ethically sourced rose essential oil from Afghaninstan. The 7 Virtues peace perfumes are made with organic sugar cane alcohol. It forms the best bond with natural essential oils which enhances our natural perfumes. Made in Canada.
This perfume is quite possibly the most beautiful rose based perfume that I’ve ever tried! The main notes of rose, bergamot and amber work to make a rose scent that is warm and a little spicy and not at all a flowery old lady scent!
And the fact that it is a clean, cruelty free formulation, makes me love it even more.
Have you tried The 7 Virtues Perfumes?
Thanks for reading
Disclosure: I purchased the full size perfume, and won the rollerball as part of a larger giveaway prize.
