Respect Mother Earth on Earth Day!

April 22nd, 2016 by

In honor of Earth Day I am asking my readers to become more aware of how you reuse, recycle, and conserve our resources.

When I look at the packaging in a perfume business I cringe.  There are double boxes, the outer box which is the mailer and the inner box which is the beautiful one we throw away, the paper liners, the cellophane overwraps, the tissue, the bows, etc.

We hear over and over how packaging sells the perfume. When we buy the perfume the first thing we do is throw away the layers of packaging and usually just put the pretty bottle on our dresser. Some people save the box if it can be repurposed or if they prefer to have their fragrances all in boxes in a cabinet as a collection.

When I was looking to create more boxes for my collections I thought about my choices. I created a beautiful expensive gift box for my Le Voyage eau de toilette.

As I researched other brands I noticed that they are really almost all the same with different colors and logos. To set my line apart I chose boxes that could be reused.

My perfume boxes are gift boxes in the shape of books.  They are deep enough to store trinkets or other items.  They have a magnetic flap so the box will stay closed.  They are three sizes and house my parfums, eau de parfums, and Limited Edition parfums.  These beautiful boxes have gold foil and beautiful flower patterns with butterflies.  They are unique and also can be stacked or placed on a shelf like a book.  How original!

My Gift Boxes contain 1 oz of eau de parfum and come with a free 5 ml travel sprayer that can be refilled.  If you remove the paper filling you will see the beautiful designs in the bottom of the box. The box can be reused and repurposed. These are ways to reduce our paper waste and not contribute more garbage to the landfills.

I also grow flowers and harvest blossoms, and create tinctures of roses, gardenia, citrus blossoms and others for my Custom Perfumes.  These special tinctures and macerations are only used in my bespoke fragrances.  This is a way to use our bounty and share it with others.

Spring Discovery Set at JoAnne Bassett!

March 12th, 2016 by

With the Spring Equinox a week away, here at JoAnne Bassett Natural Perfumes we have decided to launch our Spring Discovery Set of Natural, Botanical Fragrances.

Sweet Orange tree in bloom1

Nothing says Spring more than a burst of citrus.  During Spring in Southern California there are citrus blooms exploding on the trees.  There are sweet orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, lime, and more.

My Le Voyage eau de toilette is a light, fresh, citrus floral that is perfect for those Spring days. Especially the days that are rainy, snowing, or Mother Nature brings earthquakes, a tornado, or other disasters. It is very uplifting and a happy and feel good scent.  Everyone can wear it and enjoy it. It is perfect for work. It is also at closeout prices now. Get your bottle today as there are only a small amount left.

Le Voyage edt

If you want to try out new fragrances but cannot decide what you want, I have put together a Spring Collection to make it easy for you.

Spring Discovery Set

Put away your heavy scents with oud, amber, woods, resins and floral orientals.  After the Spring Equinox we have longer days …and we lighten up our fragrances.  A citrus, light floral or floral oriental for evening is what we want to reach for.

Try these Spring scents in a 8 piece sample pack. It includes 1 ml glass vials of eau de parfums of Contessa, Josephine, Versailles, Petit Trianon, Sacred Frankincense 1, Temptress, and Ecstasy, and a 1 ml glass vial of Le Voyage eau de toilette. Price $35.00.

With every $25.00 purchase at JoAnne Bassett.com we give you 2 free samples! So for $35.00 you get 10 samples. That is $3.50 each!

Floral Fruity – Boasting damask rose from Egypt and vintage jasmine sambac and vintage jasmine grandifolium from India..she goes right to your senses.  A calliope of scent fills your space and you are drawn in. Citrus notes of red mandarin and pink grapefruit sparkle and evolve into lavender, and spices of sage, celery seed, black pepper, and basil. To balance you, geranium roseum steps in and then you are tempted with sweet vanilla. With a green note and lemon verbena boosting the female rapture we are mesmerized. Frankincense and smooth, vintage patchouli does a sultry dance and you are left breathless.
8. Ecstasy  – The feeling is overwhelmingly pastoral, a delight
Floral – Rare and exclusive vintage Bulgarian white rose otto – the “flower of light”, vintage jasmine sambac, sweet orange, clary sage, red mandarin, wild lavender, vanilla absolute, balsam, and amber. This essence is a floral with a warm vanilla and balsam finish.

With the New Year comes many changes…

After living in Southern California for 16 years this month, I decided to get an Astrocartography reading to see what area is the most beneficial for me to live.  To my surprise I discover that So Cal is not a beneficial place for me to be living overall.

In contrast a very good place for me to live is Dallas, Texas.  I have traveled there in the 1980’s and also to visit my Sister when she lived there. So I will be moving there December 31 to start the New Year in a better place.

So if you have been waiting to purchase that full bottle, hand blown glass perfume bottle with natural perfume or Custom Bespoke perfume …now is the perfect time. I am having a 25% off Moving Sale to reduce my inventory substantially.
