The fragrance is as a result of her collaboration with Halo Heritage

Halo Heritage in turn worked with Boity and French perfumer, Emile Bouge for the creation process. 

"I think them (Halo Heritage) communicating with Emile was perfect cause she knew exactly what to do and put together and what kind of notes and oil bases to put together in order to create what she felt is what I actually anticipating in terms of what I wanted it to smell like, "explains Boity.

In as much as this is a new for her, Boity is determined to continue expanding her empire so that she can also inspire more young African women to chase their dreams. 

"What I hope to achieve is that I hope to inspire more black African women to realise that there is so much potential to tap into within themselves and there are such incredible opportunities that they can create or are there. But also, to show the possibilities of what can be done. I hope to inspire the next great thing that will be done by another African woman."

Although entreprenuership hasn't been easy she has learn a few lessons along the way and is not about to give up anytime soon. 
"I’ve learnt so much. Firstly, with entrepreneurship, you are going to encounter a lot of failures. You are going to fail, and I think for me the thing is to keep going to try the next thing. Don’t give up the first time just because it failed the first time and it always going the be the case, as the saying says Rome was not built in one day," says Boity. 


Boity is a women of many talents as she has also launched her own foundation, which she hopes will compound her philanthropic efforts. 

"I felt like that maybe I should put this on a formal platform so that I can get proper assistance in making a difference in people’s lives and it's still something I am figuring out and putting together because it’s something I intend to have for the rest of my life."
