Founders Kayte Torreao da Costa and Mylene Paquin

Divona is a new perfume range that aims to support women surviving from domestic abuse and human trafficking.

Divona was founded by Mylene Paquin and Kayte Torreao da Costa, who say:

We didn't set out to create just another perfume company. We dreamed of creating a perfume company with purpose - one that supports issues that many people care about.

We wanted to create unique scents that did more than just make you smell amazing. Our unique formulas are designed to remind you of how amazing you are and how beautiful the world can be.

We also want to evoke a feeling of hope in the women we're supporting. $2 from each purchase helps us create care packages providing basic necessities as well as items of comfort and encouragement. If something as small as a care package can bring light into these women's lives, we believe it's worth all the effort, and we think you will too!

Divona was launched on crowd-funding website, Kickstarter, earlier this month and has reached its target, however it is not too late to support the campaign which ends on Sunday. Supporters have the opportunity to obtain an exclusive fragrance, which will only be available via the Kickstarter campaign.
