THE 7 VIRTUES

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Magazine - - Beauty -

For fra­grances that do good as well as smelling de­li­cious, try The 7 Virtues. Cre­ated by Barb Stege­mann as a re­sult of a prom­ise she made to her best friend, a sol­dier who was wounded in Afghanistan, each scent is de­signed to fos­ter com­merce in re­gions of strife. The flow­ers for Afghanistan Orange Blos­som are grown by farm­ers who might oth­er­wise cul­ti­vate the heroin poppy, while Ve­tiver of Haiti is made from the high­estqual­ity or­ganic ve­tiver that comes from a sup­plier who is re­build­ing fol­low­ing the 2010 earth­quake. (sel­fridges.com) Our picks: Ve­tiver of Haiti (£54) and Afghanistan Orange Blos­som (right, £54; both ex­clu­sive to Sel­fridges)
