Aqua Nativa, Izwe, Kashi, Tsingy and Tundzha
If there is any doubt still in the minds of fragrance lovers that natural perfume is not an art, especially in the French tradition of classical perfumery, five respected French perfumers join forces to create their first 100% natural perfume collection under the brand name Parfumeurs du Monde™. Each perfumer composed a perfume around one country and one ingredient that are close to their heart, following on their commitment to adhere to the Parfumeurs du Monde's charter of using only natural ingredients.
Part of the profits will be given to Coeur de Forêt, a Paris-based NGO established in 2005 which supports small producers for the rehabilitation and protection of forests in Bolivia, Cameroon, Indonesia, Madagascar and Peru.
