Happy Bastille Day! Natural Perfume from my Royal Collection

July 14th, 2014 by

Bastille day

With a name like JoAnne Bassett it is not hard to imagine that I am a Francophile with French origins in Paris.

In my genealogy are French royalty with kings and queens going all the way back to Charlemagne.

 

Today for my scent of the day I was reaching for Marie Antoinette eau de parfum

MarieAntoinettephoto&bottle

On second thought I felt this was not the day to wear it..Even though she was their Queen she was executed.

I chose the exquisite Madame Pompadour eau de parfum from my Royal Collection

It is an enchanting, costly, parfum with many precious floral notes.

Notes: Fresh Gardenia flower infusion, Neroli, Champa, rare Bulgarian Alba Rose Otto, Vintage Jasmine Sambac, Clementine, Vanilla, Wild Verbena, Vintage Mysore Sandalwood, and others. 39 magnificent natural oils in this precious fragrance

Celebrate with aioli and baguettes…and cleanse your system…pour a good French wine and toast to all things French.  Sante!

Happy Fragrant Summer Solstice

June 21st, 2014 by

In Southern California I think of Summer and going to the beach…not that you cannot go to the beach all year here.  Summers at the beach are also times for tourists, friends and family gatherings.  Bring your cooler, umbrella to shade you from the powerful rays of the sun, waterproof sun screen if you want to jump in the ocean, a good book, a blanket, sand chairs, music device of your choice, a frisbee and a smile.

The natural fragrant choices for summer tend to be citrus -y, light, florals, and  have a fresh clean feel.

Here are a few choices from my Collections

From the French Collection  I like Chantelle for those hot, sultry summer evenings. Some of the notes are tuberose, jasmine, white rose, bergamot, vanilla, balsam woods, and others. When the tuberose and jasmine heat up on your skin you will be irresistible!   The soft, white rose will start the dry down with the vanilla and woods..and the powder notes will develop. Heavenly.

I love the Royal Collection with many fabulous exotic florals.  Magie D’ Or is Gold Magic a spicy oriental parfum that has lovely citrus notes to give it lift and sparkle just like fine champagne. Notes: Tuberose, Neroli, Lime, Cinnamon bark, Clementine, Rose de Mai, Cistus, Pink Pepper, Vintage Jasmine absolute, Ylang Ylang, Lavender Seville, Frankincense, Patchouli,  Benzoin, and others.

1 oz bottles

I also love Josephine  with its fresh green scent. The notes are Verbena, lavender vera, litsea, green mandarin,  bergamot, cardamom, star aniseseed, ylang ylang, alba rose otto, galbanum, and others.

All of my natural perfumes and eau de parfums come in travel sprayers. These are handy to carry in your pocket, purse, backpack, or suitcase.  They have a removable glass vial you can refill.

See you at the beach!  Have fun and don’t forget to try some samples to discover your new natural perfume summer favorite!  Individual samples are available in eau de toilettes, eau de parfums, and parfums.

 


Natural Perfume – Descanso Gardens Rose Festival

May 27th, 2014 by

I went to the Rose Festival on Sunday, May 25. What a delightful event! Floral artist Alison Franchi and make-up artist Jennifer Aspinall turned a model into a living piece of art decorated with roses, body paint and jewels. An homage to the gardens at Versailles. What a fabulous job!  This model would fit right in with my Royal Collection of natural perfumes.

I was so enchanted with the rose garden, the California native gardens, the tall oaks, the rhodies and camelias blooming that I forgot to take photos. The natural perfume of the roses in the 80 degree afternoon sun was amazing.  The Boddy house was also interesting and the hike through the forest to get there was great.

Luxury Meets Charity… Custom, Rare and Limited Edition Perfumes for A CAUSE

December 2nd, 2013 by

JoAnne teaching Ketel One Society workshop1

It’s that time of the year for holiday sales and as a Luxury Custom Intuitive Perfumer, I NEVER offer my perfumes on sale because if you’re a luxury shopper, you know that luxury items never go on sale. When my book “Sacred Scents” hit #1 Amazon best-seller a couple of months ago, the demand for my perfumes and my private workshops were at an all time high!

However, for this holiday season I have decided to make a special offer for my Custom Intuitive Perfumes. This is the FIRST TIME I am doing this because now I have a very good reason to do so.

My good friend Susan Ordona’s home town of Abuyog was devastated with the typhoon in the Philippines. Because of Susan’s cause I want my perfume to reach the hands of as many people as possible because my perfumes – and my loving, positive, intuitive and energetic intentions and artistry infused in them – have been known to transform the lives of so many people. There is a reason why royalty from all over the world as well as Hollywood celebrities and global thought leaders, come to me to create their very own perfumes. They feel absolutely supported, guided and empowered when they wear it. Though my high profile clients have requested me to keep their names in strict confidence, there are some who just become my raving advocates.

Typhoon Haiyan

Emma Tiebens, a powerful lady – Best-selling Author, Speaker and Success Mentor, Inspirational Leader, wife and mother, is one of my favorite success stories. A year ago, I created a Custom Perfume for her as in her own words she “needed more confidence, clarity and empowerment”. Within months of wearing her perfume, she was able to increase what she’s asking for- her programs and services and she started attracting luxury clients who were literally begging to invest in her. She was also able to write her best-selling book in record time and she keeps in touch with me to share her quantum leap milestones with me. She absolutely feels unstoppable! You can Click Here  to watch her video and see other testimonials from people like her.

business card -front

The potential for my perfume is so astounding! You’ll meet clients who come to me from all walks of life, women and men who are ready for a change. I create perfumes for housewives who want to be more empowered and find more purpose in their lives. Divorced men who are ready for embracing the next chapter in their lives. Entrepreneurs needing a financial breakthrough in their business and even C-Level Executives, Presidents and CEOs looking for more success with significance in their lives. Great opportunities often come to my clients after wearing their Custom Intuitive Perfume. I just recently received this quick Facebook Private Mail from a highly successful high-profile male client:

“Perfume is working – making great gains.”

Testimonial-“JoAnne is without parallel as a designer of couture fragrances. She has the ability to define the most personal attributes of her client and somehow place them in a bottle. She does this with a genuineness, warmth, integrity and style that makes the entire experience a dream. If ever one desired to do something amazing and unique, having JoAnne create a custom fragrance would be it.”  Michael K. B

So, back to the big reason for my decision to do this. I am donating 20% of ALL sales from now until Christmas, Dec. 25, 2013 to my friend Susan’s cause. If you’ve been wanting to donate to this huge devastation in the Philippines, this is your chance to do so and by doing so, you could literally be transforming your life as well.

Again, I NEVER discount my luxury goods and probably never will. This is truly one of the rare opportunities that you will get to have your very own Luxury Custom Perfume – made just for you with your highest and best intentions in mind. I just started a new relationship with some powerful royal families in the Middle East, Europe and Hollywood celebrities and I know the demand will lead me to raising my prices again. With the price of rare and royal oils and the increasing demand for them, chances are I will not offer these prices again so I encourage you to act now.

Below are the perfumes that I have on sale as well as specific “Buy Now Buttons” you won’t find if you order in other pages of my website. If you need more clarification and have specific questions, please feel free to send me an email at joanne@joannebassett.com and I will do my best to get back with you. I expect this to be a frenzy as I know many people have been asking me for discounts in the past and now they have the opportunity to own their own Luxury Custom Perfume by JoAnne Bassett.

Gold Custom Couture Parfum: A custom-made ½ oz. (15 ml) parfum  and a hand-blown glass bottle in a gold foil box with creamy white silk pillow. Rare, precious,  and vintage essential oils and absolutes are the raw materials used. JoAnne uses a combination of alchemy, clairvoyance and energy to create one-of-a-kind perfumes with magical significance and life-changing properties. Adorn yourself with your custom parfum and potentially be transformed™.  Many perfumes have been created only with your name and address using my clairvoyance. Available for International Shipping.
