La Flamme Marie Claire with L'Occitane

Launching on 31st August is the La Flamme Marie Claire which L'Occitane has created in partnership with Marie Claire to raise funds for the education of women around the world.  This is infact the second year the candle has been available in the UK, but since it launched back in 2010 in France some 583,100 candles have been sold which has made over 1.8million Euros for selected charities.

Each Candle is priced at just £9 and 100% of the profits is donated to three chosen charities in order to help transform the lives of young girls in the UK (Rose), Cambodia (Toutes a L'Ecole) and Africa (Entrepreneurs Du Monde).

The candle is fragranced so beautifully, almost as though you have a fresh bunch of flowers in your living room.  It has opening notes of both Freesia and Red Berries and with that comes the heart notes of Lily of the Valley, Rose and Jasmine all of which are mixed delicately with Amber and Rosewood. Packaged inside a beautifully decorated pink tin, as soon as the lid is removed, the scent comes to life all before it has been lit.

L'Occitane have, for the past 30 years, supported many ethical and charitable foundations and one of their biggest projects has been enabling the women of Burkino Faso, where L'Occitane sources their famous Shea Butter, to develop other revenue generating activities to drive them towards economic emancipation.  Partnering with Marie Claire to support projects with a common goal: educating girl and young women, the flame (La Flamme) is a symbol of hope, a beacon of knowledge spreading the light of understanding and education throughout the world.


The L’Occitane La Flamme Marie Claire Candle will be available in store and online from 31st August and will be priced at £9 .
