La Flamme Marie Claire is a scented candle which L’OCCITANE has created in partnership with Marie Claire to raise funds for the education of women. 100% of the profits from the sale of each candle will be donated to three chosen charities;Foundation Nadace Terezy Maxové (Czech Republic), Toutes à l'école (Cambodia) and Entrepreneurs du Monde (Africa) in order to help transform the lives of thousands of women and young girls around the world.
The fragrance of the candle has a wonderful floral bouquet opening with notes of freesia and red berries, blooming in a heart of lily of the valley, rose and jasmine, delicately mixed with warm notes of amber and rosewood.
The charity Toutes à L’École, created by the French journalist Tina Kieffer in 2006, offers high-level education to girls from the poorest backgrounds. Her pilot school called Happy Chandara, located in Phnom Penh in Cambodia, welcomes 100 new girls each year, providing education to over 1,200 girls.
The La Flamme Marie Claire operation will finance the education of 1,300 students.
Since 2009 L’OCCITANE has supported Entrepreneurs du Monde in Burkina Faso to promote sustainable social, economic development of women.
The project supported by La Flamme Marie Claire in 2016 will continue in 2017, to help 13,000 women in Burkina Faso to build a profession and start their own company.
