Changing the lives of children through scents.

Changing the lives of children through scents.

Villa des Parfums is a fine fragrance brand created by Nicole Derieux and heritage house Molinard for Parfums de Vie, a nonprofit organization with a mission to support the children of refugees and the migrant workers in Grasse, France. With safety and literacy as their initiative, Parfums de Vie provides care and education for kids right in the perfume capital of the world. 

"When your schooling is in a second language that you don’t speak at home, being able to read is even more important. We have an awesome library of books in French and English. We believe that opportunities for access and education can help break the poverty cycle, and help them break through the glass ceiling.

Through our nonprofit, Parfums de Vie, we work with kids who have experienced more than their fair share of hardships. Being able to offer hope and healing in tangible ways is essential. Nature constantly provides us with hopeful signs of new life and beauty that somehow transcend and pierce through the chaos. We teach the Parfums de Vie kids to learn to see the signs of hopefulness that are all around us and breathe it in. The sun always rises! The buds will bloom. The abundant nature of the universe. The strength that friendship brings." –Nicole Derieux

Discover Villas des Parfums' two beautiful fragrances that give back! Let's help their kids discover that even when everything feels impossible, there's always hope.
