About us

Papillon means “Butterfly” in French and just like the butterfly transforms from cocoon into a symbol of beauty, inspiration and desire – it is our wish that these products, and being a distributor selling these products, will have the same liberating effect on your finances and be of great value to you and the community that you live in. We have spent a great amount of time developing products that we believe are of such high quality and value that it will make selling both easy and very lucrative for distributors. We have imported only fine fragrance compounds of the highest quality and longevity to ensure that our perfumes are comparable to yet on average five times less expensive than the original fragrance it was inspired by.

Our technically advanced Papillon Pure Skin range is scientifically developed by our own Plant Guru, Schalk van Rooyen, an herbal chemist, biologist and biochemist with two MSc degrees – one in plant physiology (SA), and the other in plant chemistry and biology (USA). You can rest assured that our natural skin care products are affordable and of top quality, just like our much-loved Papillon fragrances.

At Papillon we are convinced that all women, and increasingly men, would like to wear perfume on a daily basis and that perfume is no longer a luxury item but a necessity. The sad reality is that most people, even the rich, find the price of original fragrances, ranging between R300 and R3,000 per 30ml, beyond their means. The same principle applies to skincare products.

Why sell Papillon perfume and products?

  • Huge Market – with potential customers from all demographics (age, sex, education level, income level and race)
  • Excellent Value Proposition – original branded perfume and skincare products have become unaffordable due to the weakening of the rand, inflation and the increase of luxury goods tax. Our products are on average 5 times less expensive than original branded products but of comparable quality.
  • Top quality – we only source the highest quality compounds for all our products.
  • Our products are easy to sell anyone can be a distributor.
  • Excellent profits between R20 – R300 per unit depending on the products ordered.
  • Flexibility of our business model – low startup costs: for as little as R700 (incl.VAT and delivery, Nationally only) for tester kits (“business-in-a-box”), you can:
    • Be your own boss
    • On your own time: Part-time of full-time
    • Decide how big or small you want the opportunity to be – the sky is the limit!
  • Free access to personalised marketing material and designs to promote your business.

What our Distributors say

For those wanting to start their own venture, why not become a Papillon distributor. It’s the perfect opportunity to start your own small business. Papillon has given us an ideal opportunity to earn extra money, so can you.

Nikki

When I started distributing Papillon perfume I was unemployed due to our factory that I used to work for being shut down.  The only source of income by that time was our monthly grant which was not enough to support my family of five.  We used to struggle so much until I was introduced to Papillon.  I borrowed money to be able to buy the Papillon tester kit and stock.  Truly speaking I had second thoughts about borrowing the money.  I took the risk and look at me now!

Do you know that my Papillon money is paying our bills and expenses like my children’s school fees.  I’m even saving money each and every month so that when they complete their matric they can be able to further their studies.  I know how hard it is to complete matric and not to be able to further your studies.  All I want for my children is a better and brighter future and thanks to Papillon I can build my children a better future.  We all know education is the key to success and I don’t want my children to end up being like me.

Thulani

I joined Papillon as I am passionate about good quality perfumes.  It is the perfect opportunity to make extra money for my family and be a stay at home Mom. This is a top quality product and I sell it will pride. The extra money I make contributes to my husband’s salary for those extras for my two boys. Currently saving for their 1st and 4th birthday party. Thanks for letting me be a part of your amazing team.

Cindy

What a journey it has been, that has changed my life in so many beautifully inspiring ways.  Before I joined Papillon I would work extra shifts and weekend work to make extra cash and other ends meet (my part-time tuition fees), thus making it difficult for me to see my family and have quality time with them. This soon became demoralizing to an individual like me because I’m extremely family orientated and it broke my heart to be away, WORKING on weekends.

Thank you Papillon for the freedom that goes beyond my finances, I’m a much happier individual because I can work from the comfort of my home over weekends. I can now attend weekend events, I have attached a photo of myself from this past weekend in Kloof for a cousin’s wedding! HALALA PAPILLON HALALA!!!!!!!!!

Bongi

Papillon has done two good things to me. Firstly I’m able to support my family with the extra cash that I make and secondly, Papillon has been another way for my customers and myself to save money by getting very good perfumes at a lower price. I believe that anyone will embrace the opportunity of cutting down on monthly expenses and guess what? Papillon helps me to DO JUST THAT. I call Papillon a “DOUBLE OPPORTUNITY” because I can MAKE some extra cash and SAVE money at the same time. Amazingly, Papillon has sharpened my business skills.Thank you Papillon for this opportunity!

Angel

I’m a single mother of two.  In an economy full of unemployment Papillon helps me provide for my children and helps put food on the table.  Thanks to Papillon my daughter can now afford maths lessons and my son can finally get that pair of soccer boots he’s been wanting.

Judith

The extra cash I earn from selling Papillon products helps me save for a trip to Mauritius with my family.

Lelane

I started selling Papillon products to help me save for my overseas trip and to fund my hobbies.

Johanni

Papillon is my way my life!  My son is struggling with mathematics so I decided to join Papillon to earn extra cash to pay for extra classes.  It helped me so much, I love Papillon!

Kelebogile

Papillon gives me the opportunity to manage my own mini business as a student. The income I generate from each sale contributes to my savings account for my future.

Ilanie

I started selling Papillon for extra cash.  The extra money I make helps me on a daily basis and to pay expenses that we do not budget for, like extramural activities for my children.  Thanks Papillon, I do not regret joining.

Angeline

It’s been quite an experience being part of the Papillon family. Much as I wanted a sustainable business I needed an income to match these challenging and trying times in this country of ours – South Africa.
Papillon broadens the scope and the pool of association. You brush shoulders with all people across the entire spectrum of race, religion, creed and beliefs.

I’m going to be growing my team and create opportunities for other people who are unemployed and need an additional income.

From the first day I received my Tester kit, I just felt great and wanted to run with the product because the Product Chart, the Poster, is so professionally designed and eye-catching. You cannot ignore the beauty in the picture on Papillon advert, it is exhilarating and it’s a wow!  The Aroma in these Fragrances is a smell your nostrils enjoy inhaling!
Diligence and tenacity make Papillon’s footprint!
I’m here to stay. . .  Halalaaa Papillon Halalaaa!

To be a Papillon distributor is beneficial to me and the whole nation at large.  The profit I make is not only to keep the business growing but it is also helping the unemployed youth of Namibia.  The whole idea is to create more job opportunities for our youth and to help eradicate poverty.

Hertha

Since I started Papillon last year 2015 I managed to pay all my debt that I had with extra cash.  Now I’m saving to buy myself a car.  Papillon is my way to success.

Reccah

Hi my name is Mamorena, I joined Papillon last year,at the time I was running my own business so for me it was easy to distribute the product, but my business did not make it.  The amazing thing is that I still had Papillon to fall back to.  I am a mother of two and my partner and I just bought a house with bills to pay.  With me being unemployed it was tough but as a Papillon distributor, it became a blessing because now I can help my partner with some of the bills in the house.  I am so glad that I became a Papillon distributor, I really love the products thank you………!Papillon.

Mamorena

I started selling Papillon perfumes around October 2015 and haven’t looked back since then. Being a full-time government employee, I’ve always felt my income wasn’t enough to cater for my extended family members, so I wanted some business to supplement my income. I had sold a lot of products in my lifetime with little success. Since I started selling Papillon perfumes I have been able to open a separate savings account and I am happy to see the balance increasing every month. The profit is really good. Thank you so much Papillon you are really amazing.
