Makes Scents to Us

Barb Stegemann, a Dragon's Den alumna and self-proclaimed Philosopher Queen, combines philanthropy and business savvy into a sweet-smelling package.

What started as a project in her garage has quickly grown into a national success story. With two fragrances on the shelves, Afghanistan Orange Blossom and Noble Rose of Afghanistan, and a third one on the go, the 7 Virtues fragrance line has made its way onto our vanity tables. Made from organic oils sourced from local farmers in struggling nations, these socially conscious perfumes can now compete with the very best at the beauty counters. The Dragons wouldn’t want it any other way.
